She must be stuck?

So I've been waiting now for almost a week for our little one to come. Silly doctor said that she would for sure be here by Friday and here it is Tuesday. We're (I'm) opting for an induction tomorrow so we can finally meet baby. I should've known things wouldn't have worked out and been that easy, but I was very hopeful and now I'm having to learn a hard lesson in patience. I'll go in to the hospital at 7:30 in the morning and we'll get started from there. Hopefully I'll have some cute pictures to post soon. I think I have everything as ready as I can have it. The bags are in the car, the infant seat has been installed properly so here we go...

The Waiting Game

These pictures are of Josh helping me get baby's room ready when we put the crib together and then when we (okay pretty much just him) painted the room. I can't find my picture of the room all finished, but I'll keep looking.

So now I sit here again today wondering what to do with myself? My bags are all packed and ready. I really should plan something each day so that I can give myself something to look forward to so that I don't get so bored and then turn into an emotional, weepy blob that feels huge and uncomfortable all the time. There's only so much reading and cleaning that I feel like I can put up with each day. And then I think that I'll go out and find some store to just walk around in (I'm a little limited here in Rexburg), then by the time I get home I'm exhausted and my feet hurt and I wasn't out that long. I've decided I'll just get over it and stop feeling sorry for myself. These last few weeks seem like months though and I'm such an impatient person! We're pretty sure that we're all ready for this baby now. Her room is put together, I've gone through and folded her clothes a thousand times, the diapers are all stacked in the perfect little spot, and her bed is ready for her to sleep in. Now the two of us just sit here and wait together. I told Josh how I got a little lonely yesterday so I talked to her as I made lunch, at first we were going to have a banana and then we decided on a tangerine, he couldn't help but laugh at me because of that one, see what's happening to me!!! So hopefully we can share some exciting news with everyone soon before I go crazy!
