When I found out I was pregnant back in December I thought that August would never come. I kept thinking how the summer seemed so far away, but here we are July 1st and my c-section is scheduled for this month instead of August! Only 3 weeks to go!
Luckily, we had so much going on in June that the month flew by despite the 20 or so days that it rained. I am starting to forget what the sun feels and looks like. Last month Jacob started pulling to stand and cruising which has made life interesting to say the least. As soon as he mastered that he learned how to crawl on his knees. His army crawl was cute and I am going to miss it although he still does it on occasion. He also erupted four teeth in June and they are all on top! The past couple of nights our 10+ hour sleeper has been up multiple times crying so I think more are on the way.
I had a doctor appointment yesterday and fortunately nothing has changed since my discharge from Tufts earlier in June. It is looking like I might go all the way this time and actually have a full-term (well, relatively full-term) baby after all. My OB is scheduling my amnio for Monday, 7/20 to check for lung development and if all goes well at that appointment I will be having Gracie on 7/22 or 7/24. I will be either 36w2d or 36w4d along. That is close enough to full-term for me. Then again, if the amnio comes back immature then we might have to hold off another week and I will make it to 37w! As long as the amnio comes back good it will most likely be the 22nd.
We are attempting to finish Jacob's new room, but I am not sure how much we will get done before the baby gets here, but no big deal since she will be in our room for awhile anyway. The carpet company is coming today to give us a quote on Jacob's new rug so hopefully that will be installed in the next week or two. We still need to install the replacement window, his closet door and organization system, replace the heater covers (which in Jacob's room is THREE ENTIRE WALLS!) and replace all the outlets and switches since the hacks who owned our house before painted over every single outlet and switch in the house. They also painted all of our doors (one side) white, however, when they painted over them they painted over STAIN. Yes, they were not very bright so every door is half dark wood stain and the other half is painted white and peeling/chipping since you can't paint over stain. Because of this all our bedroom, bathroom and closet doors need to be replaced as well. Once everything is done though the house will look like new!
Happy fourth of July to everyone and hopefully we will have some good weather for the weekend! I am looking forward to spending some QT with Ian and the Chicken Wing. Ian has been working hard to make sure all his loose ends at work are tied up by the time Grace is due to enter our crazy world so we haven't seen much of him lately. He is working in Waltham and his commute is two hours! As soon as we get Jacob's room together I will post pictures!
