I went to the Dr. today and I was so excited when she told me I was dilated to a 2!! I realize that sometimes people can be at that stage for quite some time, however when I was pregnant with Eli I remained at a 1 for several weeks and then had to be induced. I'm hoping this time our little girl comes on her own and I won't have to be induced at all! So, a 2 sounded great to me :) It did also strike some panic in me to think of all the things I still wanted to get done before she arrived, ha ha! I just wrapped up my Christmas shopping this evening, (give it up for online shopping!!) and now I just have to get my tree up and decorated and the rest should fall into place. Poor little Eli has been a bit sick today and I'm hoping it doesn't get much worse....I would feel terrible if my little guy was sick and I ended up having to go to the hospital leaving him with someone else. My mom doesn't come until the 22nd so if she comes early, and I'm thinking she will, Eli might have to bunk up with some friends. ( we don't have any family that live here) I'm really feeling bad about that since it is Christmas time and I don't want him to feel left out or forgotten. I've been thinking of ways to make it special for him as well and if you have any fabulous ideas, please let me know! I'd love to hear how others made siblings feel special when a new little one came along.
Besides all of that, things are going along as usual, just anticipating her arrival and enjoying the holiday season. I'll keep you posted on any new developments.....wish me luck!!
