Moving Things Up--ie, Why There's No Tower Today

Hi guys.

So, there should be a chapter here, yeah? Or at least half a chapter. But life has gotten in the way, in a BIG way. After a doctor's appointment last week, it was decided that Baby Girl needs to come out sooner rather than later, so tomorrow we're going in to be induced. Technically she's full term and everything looks like it's working okay, we're just three weeks earlier than I thought we'd be.

Three weeks. Three WEEKS. I was counting on having those weeks to get all sorts of stuff done, and now life has turned into a mad dash of getting the house ready, buying whatever else we might need, making preparations for our dog, readying ourselves for the hospital--you get the drill. I've been the next best thing to frantic, and tired and super pregnant to boot, so...yeah. I wish I'd gotten it done, but I didn't. I don't know when the next chapter will post, since after tomorrow I'll have a tiny human depending on my and my man, and our tiny human expertise is limited. I see a lot of trial and error in my future.

I'm excited to welcome my baby, though, and excited to get the pregnancy part of this experience over with, and excited about labor--or, wait, that might be anxiety. Probably anxiety. I'll try to let you guys know how things go as soon as possible. In the meantime, thanks for reading (or trying to read) and best of luck in whatever you're doing this next week.



  1. Congratulations! Positive energy to you for everything to go smoothly!!


  2. Congrats Momma! One day at a time! Hope it all goes well.

  3. Sending love!


  4. Tiny humans are great disrespecters of best-laid plans. Both my pregnancies (net result: three babies) ended four weeks before their expected Grand Opening.

  5. Congratulations! I can relay the same advice to you that the doctor gave my mother when she had her first back in 1958.... "you take that baby home and fit him into your schedule.... don't change your life to revolve around him" Since I don't have kids that's the best I can do! ;-)
