And Counting...

Yesterday was my due date. I knew that chances were very good that I would go right past that date, but once you do it is kind of disappointing. The only thing that I can think about everyday is if he will come or not! haha. Talk about a one track mind.
I had a doctor's appointment this morning and I am scheduled to be induced May 5th @ 5 Am if I have not gone into labor before then. Dr.Rice thinks that I will most likely have him before then, though. I sure hope so!
I officially started my maternity leave today. I just couldn't work anymore....the last few days have taken a lot out of me and I need some rest physically and mentally before Caden comes.
I am so looking forward to 6 weeks off with just my baby...I know that most of the time i will be exhausted and trying to get used to this new life, but I still am really looking forward to it. :)
Well, that is about it for time I write, hopefully, I will be a new mommy!

Finally A Post...

I can't believe I haven't written in so long! Things have just been busy, plus we don't have an internet connection at home. That is my excuse. :)
I only have 1 1/2 weeks until my due date! Time is really going by quickly. I can't believe that in 2 weeks max I will have my sweet baby here with me! (the doctor doesn't let you go more than a week past your due date).
We have pretty much everything all ready for him. The nursery is looking so cute! I really am happy with it.
Yesterday my work threw my a surprise baby shower! It was so sweet of them. We ate at johnny Carino's, opened gifts, and had cake. They really spoiled me and Caden with gifts, plus the entire office gave me a $100 gift card to Babies R US! I couldn't wait and went this morning and spent almost all of it on some important things that I still needed.
Garrett and I have really been praying that God would provide for us, as we have more and more expenses coming up. And last week we received some news that could only be a blessing from God- I qualified for medicaid for the pregnancy! This is such a blessing as our health insurance has yet to help us at all with the pregnancy bills, we have such a high deductible for maternity! So, we have been paying out of our pocket, but now we have this assistance to cover it for us! We just praise God for His hand of blessing and providence.
I am looking forward to my 6 weeks off from work to spend with my baby. I know that Caden and I will both really need that time together and I will need that time to heal and try to get used to our new life!
Things are going really good and God is blessing. I could use all the prayers I can get as I have never experienced any of this before! :)
Next time I write I will probably have my baby here with me! Until then...
