Sitting on Zero

Well, Tiffany called today and both Kyle and I got to talk to her. She had a doctor's appointment on Monday and she wanted to update us on how things were going. So far she's not dialted at all and is pretty much sitting on zero as far as progressing towards labor and delivery. She said that she has another appointment on Monday and if she hasn't gone into labor by then they are going to scrape away the membranes on her cervix and see if that puts her into labor. If that doesn't do the trick fairly quickly, they are going to go ahead and schedule a c-section for the first week in July. She said she is doing well and holding up against the heat fine. She says the baby is kicking even more now and has gone from little leg kicks to whole body throttles! She said she can watch her hand or foot push out her stomach on one side and then feel her do a huge whole body flip and then see that same arm or leg push out her stomach on the opposite side! She says it's a pretty weird sight and feeling. All together we chatted with her for about 30 minutes and she made sure that we knew that she was still committed to her decision to place the baby with us. She also reported that she is definitely ready for the baby to be born so that she can fit back into her capris. She says wearing pants in this heat is for the birds! :)

I don't really have any new pictures to post, but I think the blogs look so boring without any sort of visual aid so I'm going to try to post some pictures of the nursery on here. Since we've been doing a lot of work to get ready for the baby this week, I guess it's only fitting. I washed and sterilized a few bottles, put all her blankets and sheets through the laundry, and reorganized the entire nursery yet again! If this baby doesn't come soon I'm going to wear out the carpet in there just by moving things around so much! :p
