Finley's First Day Home!!

We are home from the hospital and doing well. On the way home I couldn't believe the hospital actually let us leave with her!! I am doing well but I'm pretty tired. She is so beautiful and it never gets old looking at her and I figured everyone probably feels the same so here are a few more pictures. maybe tomorrow when I feel better I will post a short version of the very long birth story!

Impatiently Waiting

I am 38 weeks 3 days and no sign of a baby yet. I had an appointment on Wednesday and I am still 1cm, 70% effaced and the baby has moved from a -3 to a -2 station. So in other words...not much progress :( I am trying to to keep myself busy by going to the gym and walking and working as much as I can but the waiting is hard!

Hopefully not much longer!!

Full Term!!

I'm 37 weeks today which means I am officially full term! We are ready for her to make her appearance at any time. Last week I had my first weekly appointment and unfortunately there isn't much going on with my cervix. I am 0 cm dilated and the baby is still not in my pelvis but my cervix is 50% thinned. This probably doesn't mean much to most of you so in English...she's happy inside!
I know I said no bare belly shots but let's be honest it's not really my belly anymore, so for the first and last time here is my uncovered 37 week baby belly. Hopefully there will soon be pics of the baby in my arms instead of my belly!!

A Busy Weekend!

36 Weeks!

Betty Chin (aka Steph) came to our nail party and did mani/pedis for Jacque and I.

Steph and Jacque made me post this pic of me attempting to cut my toenails. It was quite the feat to reach my toes but I was able to contort myself enough to get it done!

On Friday night we took the train downtown and went out to eat at Zelo.

On Thursday my co-workers had a baby shower for me and once again the baby and I were thoroughly spoiled. Both my mom and my mother-in-law were in the cities for the shower. They left on Friday morning just as Steph and Jacque were flying in from Chicago for a girl's weekend. We had a lot of fun going out to eat, shopping and just hanging out! Unfortunately the massages didn't work out so well. Sorry girls. I owe you!

The Nursery!

This week Donna and Doug (Grandma and Grandpa Schmidt) are spending the week with us. Donna and I have done a little shopping and the boys have taken in a Twins game, but the best thing we did is set up the nursery! I absolutely love it! Donna painted the room, made the curtains and made the wall hangings. We all helped put together furniture and decorated. Now the only thing we need is the rocker (and the baby of course!) Before we know it she'll be sleeping in here!
