We’ve had two appointments since our last post and I am ready to get this girl here! Zack and I can’t hardly stand it anymore. We’ve got her room ready, she has more clothes than the both of us, and I think the grandparents are on pins and needles waiting to make the trip to Stillwater.
The week before last at our appointment (Jan 24th) Zack and I went and pre-admitted into the hospital and I was really impressed with the nurses and facility. They gave us a tour and walked us through the process when we come to have her. At our appointment I was already dilated to a two so Dr. Ebert went ahead and made us another appointment but for us to keep a close watch. No contractions still so we ventured to Ada for the weekend at my parents (MoeMoe & Pops).
Today I had my very last appointment and I went in having hopes that they might keep me but I hadn’t hardly dilated anymore since last week so they have me scheduled to be induced Tuesday February 7th at 7:30 A.M. I can’t wait but still hopeful that she may come a little sooner. I think the last couple weeks of pregnancy are the worst. We are so anxious, I’m not sleeping, I’ve done the whole nesting thing, and cabin fever has set in. I don’t think I can be cooped up in this house alone for another week and honestly I don’t know what else I can Pin on Pinterest or what else I can do to get our house ready for Paisley.
This will be our first blog post together!

We have less than two weeks for our due date and we absolutely cannot wait for our little princess to arrive! We are thinking it could be sooner but we will wait and see! At my last appointment (Jan. 17th) we had our last ultrasound and Paisley was already 6lbs 14 oz and 20 in. long! She is a big girl already! Our moms went along with us and we were all laughing because she kept sticking her tongue out at us. Miss personality already-I think she gets it from Zack. Health is still going great and we’ve been so blessed! My appointment this upcoming Tuesday will determine where we are at in terms of how soon she will be here and if I have dilated at all! We will also have a tour of the hospital where I will be delivering (Stillwater Regional) and a birthing class. We will post on that experience later this week!
Not sure if I was playing with princess tonight or just making her angry in mommy’s tummy but she was going crazy!! I am extremely excited for her to be here! I was unable to go to the last ultrasound so I’m a little jealous, but she will be here soon. I think she knows my voice. :) When I come home and talk to her she starts moving and kicking. :) I am one proud daddy and I cannot wait for her to make her arrival. I am new to the blog scene so hope this is okay. :)
That’s all the news we have for now. I will post details of our latest appointment and pictures of her room soon!
