One more week

I have been horrible about blogging lately. We have been having serious internet/computer issues though. When we moved, we had a hard time finding an internet provider for our area. Everyone said that they didn't cover our area. We finally got Embarq to set up internet. It was a horrible connection, and it took forever to do anything. We switched from Embarq to Time Warner, and our internet improved... but both of our computers decided to stop working. Our desktop got a horrible virus that lost everything. Our laptop decided that the mouse was over-rated. So we are limping along with our laptop while the desktop is in the shop. Then the laptop will get it's turn to get fixed. All of this means that blogging/internet use is difficult.

All is well in J-ville. We are doing really well. Joseph is starting to learn his job, and I am finally figuring out how to get around town without getting lost! I have the navigation skills of a rock, so this is a huge accomplishment. Bailey had his first appointment with his new vet today. They were not his Quantico buddies, but they will do.

Blake is still growing. I am 38 weeks today. If he comes today, he would be considered full term. Hopefully, he won't though. Joseph is gone training this week, so I have been alone with Bailey. Joseph is just a phone call away, but it would still be rather difficult to get him back here. He comes home tomorrow, so anytime after that is OK. I doubt it will happen anytime soon though. The doctor said that she doesn't expect anything.

If Blake doesn't come on his own, they will be inducing me next week. This is exciting and scary. Inductions are hard on babies and mommies. It will probably take a long time, and the chances of needing a C-section are pretty high. Unfortunately, my body is pretty done. My blood pressure has been rising, and my labs are not looking good. It is better at this point to induce, but it is definitely not the easiest way to have a baby. The good thing is that after all of the hours of inducing, we will finally get to meet Blake.

I am excited to finally have Blake here (no matter how he makes his appearance). This is something we have been working on since 2008. I knew this day would eventually come, but I was beginning to wonder when we would get here. It has been a long, hard road. We are finally nearing the end of it. Hopefully the last little bit will be the easiest part.


  1. Hoping Blake holds off until Daddy is back but before you have to induce.

    I just can't believe you are here already....where has time gone? Can't wait for him!!!

  2. Congrats on making it to full term! I hope you guys have a smooth and easy delivery and can't wait to see pictures of your cute little man!
