I am 38 weeks pregnant today. I went into the doctor on Wednesday and I was 1cm dilated. My doctor thinks it will happen in the next week or so. I go in again next Wednesday and she is going to try to jump start my labor. I won't go into detail but it is not comfortable!! She said he will be around 7 1/2- 8 pounds. I am hoping he is born next weekend. I still need 1 more week of rest before the madness begins!
Roman is doing really good. He is sleeping in his own bed at night. Some nights he wakes up crying around 3 or 4 and we bring him into our bed. As long as he has slept in his own bed for at least 7 or 8 hours, I don't mind having him in our bed for a couple of hours. He loves the book "Where the Wild Things Are". We read it to him every night and it really keeps him calm and excited to get into his crib.
Sam is working a lot of extra hours right now. His best friend Paul just had a baby and is on paternity leave from work so Sam is able to pick up extra hours. Right when Paul goes back to work, Sam will leave on his paternity leave. I swear we didn't plan it that way, it just happened that I got pregnant 3 weeks after his girlfriend did! It's been nice having someone to go through the pregnancy with that understands everything I'm going through!
We are having car problems (like always). We need transmission work done and a new power steering pump. We pretty much aren't taking our car anywhere. Sam takes him truck to work and to run errands if needed. Sam might do some of the work himself and find someone else to do that stuff that involves the transmission.
So baby Phineas will be here soon and we will keep everyone posted with pictures on our blog and on my facebook!
