Nervous

I find myself getting anxious at times knowing I only have 20 some odd days till it's "go time". Normally in the past the doctors will go ahead and give me an induction date about a week or so early so I don't have to push out a 9 pounder, my babies come out around 8 lbs. The doctors here could care less if I had a 7 pounder or a 12 pounder, but the word induction to them is like a curse word, heaven forbid! So I just sit not knowing if I'll go into labor tonight, or in 2 more weeks. It's hard for a "planner" like me to just sit and let whatever happen....happen. But I have no choice. But my body for sure is tired of having babies. This pregnancy was fine until about a month ago, and now I really can "feel" the toll it's taking on my body. My hips ache, my pelvic bone feels like it could split in half at any second and my back aches.... poor me right? I know all mom's go through it, I'm just definitely feeling more of the aches this time. My body is saying, "enough is enough woman!" Any way, just venting. Not really wanting the baby out now because that will mean I have 4 kids, but I wish my body wouldn't hurt so bad. Any way. all is good here. Let's just pray I don't go over my due date and have to push a 10 pounder out, that will not be fun.
Another note: This baby is Darren's baby to name. We pretty much named Ethan together, and then I named Ashton and Lily, so he gets dibs on this one. Which is fine till I heard the name he wanted. But now it's been 6 months since he said the name and he still wants it. Okay ready? The name he wants is........Jacob Edward Conner. Now anyone who has not read the Twilight series is saying..."so? what's the big deal?" Well it's a huge deal if you have read them. These books are "huge" right now, kind of like the Harry Potter craze. Jacob and Edward are the two main male characters in all 4 books. My husband never read the books, he knows they are popular but doesn't care. Edward is a family name after his dad, and he just likes Jacob a bunch. So there you have it people, the name most likely will be Jacob Edward and I don't want any laughs or giggles from anyone thinking I was so obsessed with the books that I had to name my last son after them! I can only imagine blessing day at church. All the women will be smiling and giggling! Have mercy on me!!!!! This is my disclaimer and I'm sticking to it!

How funny! But I really like that name, he did good. I think eventually it won't be the first thing you think of every time you hear it. You're brave to turn over naming rights completely! I don't know that I would be that brave! Although Jason has pretty good taste in names, too. I hope for your sake that you have this one a little early. I feel your pain when it comes to worrying about the size of your baby. Love you and miss you a ton!

I always think that out here the doctors don't know what it would be like to let someone go into labor on their own. I think they like to start everyone!

You should hear the names Clint is coming up with. I don't have anything against these names I just don't want to name my baby girl Dixie Grayce or Jennica. We can hardly agree on anything and it's frustrating. You are so brave to let Darren do it all alone! Don't worry we won't start calling your little boy the twilight baby! have a great day and a great labor! I know exactly what you mean when you say you are ready for it to be over!

My you are brave letting anyone have complete control of the name game, but I think Darren has picked a good one. Jenna's name came from a character on Dallas (you're probably too young to know what that is)-- not because I liked the character, I just like the name. All these years later, no one even knows who that character was.

Robin -
I do love his name choice... but yes, you will get mocked at every family reunion... :) (I so wish I could be there on the blessing day!)
Hang in there... (why did I even say that, I always want to poke peoples eyeball out when they say that to me during the last month!!). I SO know your pain! You aren't ready to have it actually arrive yet, you are just ready to be unpregnant for a while!! OH, my body hurts just hearing your situation and remembering all too well what it is like to finish that last month out!
The next appointment, every question the dr. asks you, just respond with "Pitocin, Please". After the 15th time, he might start to get the hint...
Good luck girl!!

hahahahahahaha! RRRRRRiiiiigggghhhhhtttttt. You know you whispered that name in his ear when he was asleep and just drilled it into his subconsciousness (sp?) hahahaa! No one will care when he's older, besides, who goes around announcing their middle name???

Kate said...

i am way excited about the name. every time i think about it, i smile! but then again, i am a little obsessed with twilight right now!
we could so throw you a twilight theme baby shower, how fun would that be? hehehehe

Shan said...

I think Jacob Edward is a nice name. He will be adorable. Oh, why can't you guys be closer?!?!
So we can let him pose with our dog, Bella, and see if we get more smiles. Yeah, a Twilight theme shower...
Hope all goes well for you all and little Jacob. Love you guys!

Heidi said...
