Ok, You Can Come Out Now!

Dear Lil’ J,

We’ve made it! You won’t be premature if you’re born any time now so you are good to come whenever!! I still have projects I’m trying to finish at work and like I said before, the cleaners are coming on the 14th, so it would be nice if you could wait another week or so but really, I know it’s up to you. I just wish I knew when you were coming so I could plan accordingly. But I guess this is just getting me prepared for you running the show for the rest of my LIFE!
I should be done with my work stories after this next week, I’m hoping I am at least, it’ll be so nice to feel completely and totally ready and I think I will after that. Right now I worry if I went into labor I’d have to go to work and rush to get things done before going to the hospital. It’s crazy I know. I’m obviously not that worried though or else I wouldn’t be taking a vacation day today and writing to you right now. It’ll all work out!
We are going to put your car seat in the car this weekend, and hopefully go get it checked somewhere before bringing you home in it to make sure we did it right. It can’t be too hard right?
Oh my goodness, I downloaded a video ap on my iphone and FINALLY caught you moving in my belly on video! I’m glad I’ll have that to save.
We went to the doctor this week and she measured my tummy and said “Wow, you have a big baby!” I couldn’t help but smile cause at least that means you’re healthy right?
She says you’re very long, you don’t have much room in there as your head is very far down, and your butt is all the way up in my ribs… Your legs are squished in there too. She predicts if you go to your due date you’ll most likely be well over 8lbs and maybe as long as I was… 22 inches! I guess we’ll see.
She also said you may get a bit of a conehead coming out which worries me a little. I know it’s not permanent but I already sometimes have scary dreams about you coming out as an alien, so a conehead may remind me a little of that.
It’s ok though, we have lots of cute beanies we can over it up with until it goes down if that’s the case.
We also checked and we’re already dilated 1cm. So just 9 more to go!! Woohoo. I’m trying to walk a lot, park further away, do yoga, jump around and stuff to help the process. I also bought some Evening Primrose Oil pills… who knows if they’ll work. I didn’t start taking them yet but I may in about a week and a half.
I have your going home outfit packed with a cute dress, sweater, hair bow, and mary jane socks to match but my friend Danielle sent me these ADORABLE shoes and hair bow from Curly Birdie. So now I either need to change your outfit so they match, or get another pair… Oooh they are SOOOO cute! I don’t spend $20 on my own shoes Lil’ J, cause I have big ugly feet, but I will for you! Your feet are little and cute!
I may get you these to match the cute outfit I already have packed for you! We’ll see though, I have to ask your daddy, and he thinks you already have enough shoes. … Don’t ever let a man tell you you have enough shoes Ladybug.
We are so excited for you to get here. I can hardly contain myself! I would say keep growing but maybe I should be more specific… Keep growing hair, cute chubby cheeks, and chubby legs. Keep getting smarter and practicing your blinking, thumb sucking and all that other stuff that will help you when you get out. Oh, practice sleeping too, we’ll both be needing some of that once you come out.
I love you baby girl, I can’t wait to meet you!
Ok, let’s here your guesses, what did you vote in the poll, when do you think she’ll make her debut? My guess/hope: June 23rd!

  1. Your letters always make me so anxious for the day I get to feel those emotions. Best wishes to you and Lil’ Miss J as you complete these last few weeks. Are you or your husband tall? She’s really long.

  2. Aww this is sweet! You are lucky you are already dilated, I got checked yesterday and nothing yet! 🙁 I was hoping he would come soon!

  3. I think that she’s going to make her debut sometime between the 19th and the 24th. You’ve already started dropping and dilating. So, it won’t be much longer. I doubt it that you’ll go until your due date!! Wow, this is bringing back memories from my pregnancy.

    Don’t work too hard.

  4. While you were busy making this AMAZING baby (and thank heavens not too early !), I’ve been very busy with my social networking lately!

    Which brings me to the reason for this post:

    I am really very sorry that this is a form letter 🙁

    However we spent days following everyone on the Simply Follow list from the Mom Bloggers Club, and out of 690 people, maybe only 10 followed us 🙁

    I don’t know if you joined our blog or not, but if you have a moment, could you PLEASE go over to http://www.kiboomu.blogspot.com and give us a quick follow?

    Again, sorry for this form letter, but I am going to to back to ALL 690+ people that we followed and leaving this note. Hopefully we will get a super great turnout now!



  5. girl, you made me all teary-eyed reading this post =) I remember being there like it was just yesterday!!! My little Bubbles is almost 2 now, wow, time DOES fly. That’s great you got some video of her in your belly moving around, I tried but you could never see it on the video =) she was a tiny one. I love those little shoes, mine had 10 pairs of those lil cute shoes before she was even born =) gotta love having a GIRL!!!! I hope you have a beautiful birth and savor these last days!!

  6. The day I checked into the hospital I did go to work. My second graders were taking a huge state test and I wasn’t afraid they won’t do their best with a sub. They took the test and then I went to the hospital. JDaniel didn’t arrive until the next morning.

  7. Yay on being full term .. now to make it until she decides to come! Those shoes are so cute!! I hope to be able to get some for my baby on the way — hoping for a girl so that I can dress her pretty!
