I'm going nuts today! DH has me under strict instructions to NOT check his e-mail so he can be the one who gets the (potential) admin e-mail first. But he's at work, so he can only check from time to time.
There's no way to know if he actually *will* hear anything today. But I am still going batty waiting and wondering. He's going to call the second he gets news. He called earlier this morning about something else and I about had a fit when I heard the phone ringing. lol
DD and I are going to bake lots of cookies today. Hopefully that will serve as a distraction. We're going to make choc. chip (which I'm craving) and Snickerdoodles (which is DP's favorite). That way, if he gets an acceptance today, he has cookies to celebrate - or if he doesn't hear anything, or gets bad news, he has cookies with which to drown his sorrow. :)
I hope you guys get good news! And I want/have been planning to bake cookies, but yeah... hasn't happened yet. DD and DF are asleep, I'm trying to get DS to sleep too, so I can do something, but... that's not looking like it's going to happen. You're so nice, making cookies for him that way.
I want to be pregnant with someone, but I don't want my sister(s) to be pregnant. My one sister would be devastated (she doesn't want kids, and... stuff), and my other sister, it'd be immaculate conception or something so... not going to be a sister.
So a couple of updates from me....
I was talking to my sister and trying to finalize her plans for coming out to help around the birth of our LO, and she announced that she is now expecting too! She is about 5-6 weeks. I'm so excited! Kind of bad timing for her, since she will be moving in with us while her DH does his federal officer training (4 months) plus his stint at another state park (an additional 4 months) before they can go home. This means that she won't get to see her midlife, who she loves. I think we can hook her up with our midwife here for the first 4 months. No idea where they will be for the second 4 months. If it is on this side of the country, there is a chance that she will have her second home birth in our home. Did I mention how excited I am?! So after I recover from birthing this LO, I can help take care of my sis!
A little less exciting, but kind of funny. At our last appointment the u/s tech did growth measurements, in addition to checking on baby's heart. Baby is measuring average, but his/her head is measuring about 2 weeks ahead! It sounds like this is a Jones baby after all!!! (MIL informed me when I was preg with DD that the Jones babies have large heads.- WTH?!) Still a big head should be easier than a hand by the head, like DD, right? and then after I birth the head the rest should be really easy, right? Oi!
