Waiting, waiting, waiting

I hate waiting. No surprise there to many of you! I'm now 39.5 weeks and the due date is Saturday, November 3. Doctor said yesterday that he's moved down into the right position, now we're waiting on my body to realize that it's time to get going! Some contractions going on, but not enough to really get things moving yet. I know, it's still early but I can hope, can't I?

At next week's appointment we'll start talking about inducement, etc. They won't even allow me to make an appointment to be induced until I've officially reached 41 weeks - but when I reach 42 weeks they'll induce me no matter what. So, we'll have a week to play with and make some decisions. Let's just hope it doesn't come down to that.

In my zealousness to be overly organized and ready for whenever Jake decided to arrive, I'm pretty much done with his room, washed his clothes, packed the labor bag, etc. and am now bored to death! Yes, trying to sleep although that's not easy these days, and now starting to think about Christmas presents. Anything to keep busy.

Carrie, what a GREAT Trick or Treat present today. I'm here on the West Coast now (arrived last night)-- We're all sending you the best possible vibes and thoughts. Thanks for the bloggie stuff.

What about Skype cameras and/or other video downloads?

Hi Carrie!
For a second my heart skipped with excitement! But we must still wait.... Jake's cousins, Joonas and Santeri, also love the photos in the blog. Such a great idea!
Love, Eila

Hang in there Jake! Just two more weeks and you can have the same birthday as Uncle Eric!

Haha, just kidding Carrie!

I've been thinking about you guys! HOW EXCITING. Get as much sleep as you can now (yah, as if)! And spend as much time with each other as you can. We are so happy for you guys. Can't wait to meet Jake over Christmas.

Wow, I opened the email and thought it was direct from Jake and I see its from the next best thing.
We are all waiting with baited breath, get a move on Jake. I guess the best course is to be patient... oh so hard. Am thinking of you every day and send lots of love and PATIENCE!!
