Only 9 days left!

As I type this I realize how incredibly anxious I am that Karsyn will be here so soon! 9 days at the most before we meet her! Last night Jeromy and I did a lot of prepping that was needed. He did the dishes while I sterilized the parts to my breast pump and worked on freezer meals. I am now up to 4 meals, 5 loaves of bread and 77 pigs in a blankets! My goal is to have 2 weeks worth of meals prepped and ready to go so that I don't have to worry about cooking while we are getting settled into a routine. I must admit that I have really enjoyed cooking all these different things and I think that this staying home business is going to suit me well. :) Our hospital bag is finally packed and ready to go at any moment (with the exceptions of my daily use items) and the baby book is in the diaper bag ready to be taken to the hospital too! I am so glad that everything is coming together...finally! Friday we are having cleaning people come for a deep cleaning and Monday we are having our carpets cleaned. I think that once those things are done I will feel more prepared for Karsyn to get here. Jeromy has his own list of household chores for the weekend.....he has to do yardwork in addition to changing the a/c filters and batteries in our smoke detectors. Other than that we have a pretty busy weekend ahead of us with graduations parties, birthday parties and all the house preparations. Luckily Friday is my official last day at work so next week I can finish my freezer meals and maybe even take a nap!

I say all these things that we have left to do and gulp because my dr. isn't very confident that we will make it to induction day. I am already 3 centimeters dilated and Karsyn's head is super low. His exact words to me were "Well...luckily I am on call this weekend. I won't be surprised if I see you there." I almost fell off the exam table when he said that! I just cannot believe that she could come sooner than 9 days. But, just so I don't get my hopes up or overwhelm myself I am sticking with 9 days to go. And I look at it on the bright side....being this dilated will only help my induction to go smoother!
And here it is....this is what a full term pregnant girl looks like! :)
