the waiting game plan

So today is my due date... the date you anticipate for about 9 months, the day you are ready to pop and be parents to a new child. I don't think she is coming. Gary and I have tried our silly antics to get her motivated, I talk with her, read her books, tell her that she will love it here instead of inside of me, Gary told her that she has the best mommy, kisses my tummy, nothing is helping. She is content staying inside. I woke up this morning screaming because of a dream/nightmare I had, guess what it was about?

yep she would not come out, even when I was able to have (ready, and pushing) she some how wedged herself inside and would not come out! so in my very vivid pregnancy dream, that I blame hormones for, I witnessed my own emergency C-section, to every detail, the tools, the doctor, where they cut, and how they cut! To make things worse Gary was to excited to see her come out that he didn't even hold my hand and comfort me. Lets hope this does not happen. I am not one to be cut open unless I am completely sedated, which won't happen if it's an emergency! Of course when I woke up I screamed which then scared Gary and of course I was mad at him for not comforting me in my dream, So I made him cuddle with me until he fell back asleep. I have a new found gratitude for all mothers that go pass their anticipated due date.

So now the next week is totally in Chloe's hands, when she comes will also decide when we will be moving. Yes I hate to say it but this is what we know:

1. If Chloe hasn't came by Monday the 2nd, my doctor will scedule a day for me to get induced, I say the sooner the better,
2. the Inducement day will be on or before Thursday, the do all end all day.
3. this weekend we will be cleaning and getting MORE things packed up so we have just the "essentials" left to entertain us
4. After she comes, assuming that it's before thursday, we will leave on Thursday or Friday to live in Des Moines.

Thats the game plan, of couse I could go into labor this weekend, but we will still stay untill Thursday.

I hope that this answers some of those moving questions. Feel free to call me I love to chat, that seems to be the only good way to ease my annxiety... I am not very patent, when it comes to things like this and chating is a great way for me to not think about what is going on and not going on.

When are we moving?

That is an excellent question... as soon as Chloe is here we will be moving. I guess she gets to decide. Gary has to stay for the four weeks in January until his rotations are done in the area, which means that the last week (week of my due date) is his week off and then he starts his other rotation in Mason City on February 6th. So the best we can say is that our move will be sometime before the first weekend of February. However as Gary and I both love to procrastant we have to be out of our appartment on Feb. 13th. That is just in case we need more time to pack, and move things.

Changes are happening, This week will be my last week of actually working for an employer for a long time! yay I am sure that I will free lance my photography skills after we move or when i feel like I am ready to start that up again. or who knows maybe I will get Hobby Lobby fever and want to work one day/night a week to keep the awesome discount, and of course there is always Pampered Chef that I want to keep up and there is talk about me wanting to do Close to My Heart stamps, if I need a creative outlet but for now I am just going to focus on trying to be a mom for a while.

Gary and I are really excited about the move. It's bitter sweet to move,we are both going to miss our friends from Iowa City, the University ward and the amazing pizza places there are to eat at. We are both sure that once Chloe is born she will also want Pizza as she is use to the yummyness that pizza is. anyways we still have maybe a month left... lots more memories to share for later times.

I will hope to post some things about Des Monies and Mason City soon. I love Des Monies, especially the Zoo and other venues that DSM has, so if you are not from Iowa you can experience Iowa in a new way.
