The Last Bumpdate!!!

I can't believe this will be the very last bumpdate. We will be 40 weeks tomorrow and since we are inducing on Monday, I don't think I will posting on the 2 days after our due date.

This pregnancy has completely flown by. Well, except for now. Time is a draggin'. I just KNEW Grey would come early. Even the doctor didn't think I would make it to the 5th. Well, little man proved us all wrong. Its cold. He's comfy. He decided to stay for the long haul.

Its not letting me upload a photo for some reason so I might have to do another post with our 39 week belly pic - but here's the bumpdate!

Due Date: January 5, 2013
How Far Along: 39 weeks
Total Weight Gained: 143 (27 lbs) 
Maternity Clothes: Yes
Best Moment of the Week: Knowing that this baby is eventually coming out, as we set an induction date for Monday January 7th.
Food Cravings: Not a whole lot of anything. My appetite has defnitely diminished these last couple of days.
Food Aversions: None
Belly button/stretch marks: In/no stretch marks

Symptoms:  Same ole' same ole'
Adam's pregnancy symptoms: Impatience. This man is READY. Little does he know that however ready he is, I am WAY beyond that point. He actually asked me last night if I was going to go for a run or something today. Uh, no Scotty. I want this kid out as much as you do but a 40 week pregnant woman does not run. Well, unless you are one of those freaks of nature who eats only granola and organic veggies, doesn't allow TV, and exercises while in labor... aka, not me.
Movement:All the time. I think he is getting P.O.ed about the space issue. I've tried explaining that he could easily upgrade from his tiny studio apartment to a large single family home but you know you just can't reason with men.
Gender: Boy - Greyson Carter.
Milestones: The date is set! Grey may think he's living the bachelor life indefinitely but little does he know that momma has other plans!! We are set to induce on Monday if he doesn't come willingly before then. I keep hoping that he'll decide to come on his own, but with only 2 days left, my hope is fading fast. Without wanting to get too graphic (and knowing the stocked response has been "ewe" to the few girlfriends I have told) I will say that my doctor stripped my membranes at my appointment on Wednesday. Just google it - I won't go into details. She said it works about 50% of the time to induce labor within 24-48 hours. Well, that point has come and gone so we took to trying a couple of home remedies. Those also appear to have failed us so we are thinking Monday is the day. I am so ready to meet this little guy its ridiculous. Can't believe in a few short days we will be a family of FOUR!!
