Erik and I are heading to the doctors at 1:45 this afternoon. This will be my last checkup before the baby arrives. There is the possibility that they could decide to go ahead and induce me if they think it is necessary. I still haven't experienced any contractions yet so I have a feeling they will hold off and wait. But last night I started feeling "off." My friend Marisa called and said she had a dream that I went into labor so maybe it will happen soon! Please keep baby Harper in your prayers.
Erik and his daddy painted some beautiful stripes on the nursery border last night. They are navy and white. It adds a nice little pop to the room. I think Erik is ready for Harper's arrival because the longer I sit around and wait, the more ideas I come up with to add to the nursery. He could be painting sailboats on the walls next week if this baby doesn't hurry up and get here! hehe
I filled out a baby blog on my Tumblr account yesterday so I thought I would put it on here too.
When is your due date? Sept. 20, 2010
What week are you in? Week 39 cmmon baby!
How many pounds have you gained so far? Last week I was at 30 pounds!
Have you had an ultrasound? O yes, I wish I could get one every week. I love the ultrasounds.
Do you know the gender of your baby? All boy!
Do you have a name picked out? Harper Michael Huffman
Is the child being named after someone? Well I babysat a little boy named Harper growing up and I always loved the name. Plus I think it sounds good with our last name, Huffman. His middle name, Michael, is after my father’s middle name. It is also my Papa’s first name. And I have a cousin named Michael!
Who is going to be with you during delivery? My hubby, Erik!
Natural or medicated childbirth? I have decided to go with the medication. No need for excess pain for this girl! I mean, I wouldn’t go get a tooth pulled out without getting Novocain…
How are you feeling right about now? HUGE! Sleepy, anxious, hungry… but ready to have this baby!
What was the first thing you bought for baby? I bought several outfits from Janie and Jack. But I didn’t know the sex of the child so I went ahead and got girls and boys outfits. Silly, I know, but I was so excited! So I have a few girl things that I will save in case the next baby is a little girl.
Do you feel you are ready to have a baby? Yes! PREPARED and ready to go!
Are you excited or scared about delivery? More excited than scared!
Any food cravings? Anything sweet makes me happy. I love putting Snickers bars in the freezer and eating them frozen. Yum!
Anything you loved before that you absolutely cannot eat anymore? I had a few weeks where chicken made me sick to my stomach. It was horrible. I love chicken. Glad I got over that!
Anything else you’d like to share or vent about? Still trying to make sure i have everything ready for the little man! I can’t wait to see his sweet face and hold him in my arms.
A baby will make love stronger, days shorter, nights longer, bankroll smaller, home happier, clothes shabbier, the past forgotten, and the future worth living for.
