Ready or Not....

... here he comes!

Baby Beckett will be here MONDAY!!! Yes, 4 short SHORT days. I went to the doctor today and had a very unexpected conversation with Dr. L. He checked me and determined I am 2 cm dilated, my cervix is extremely soft, and the Braxton Hicks I had last night (and tonight) were/are in fact contractions. That teamed with the other rather unpleasant symptoms I have been experiencing, Dr. L said he would bet big money that I wouldn't make it until next week, let alone my due date of February 5th. So he said this, "Looks like you are going to have a baby next week. Do you want mother nature to be in control or do you want to be in control?" Taking Tayden into consideration and the fact that Scott has most of next week off from school, we decided to be in control. And really, the timing is so convenient. Scott won't have to miss any school, (very important for his last semester) and my mom will be able to come help when he has to go back to school. So, we set the day and Monday at 6:00 am, I will be at the Hospital preparing for baby #2. At least that's the plan.

And did I mention my big boy turns 2 on Tuesday? Busy Week!

I would tell you how I feel about the whole thing, but honestly....I don't know. Everything is so surreal. As soon as I figure it out all 5000 feelings, I'll let you know.

Until then...wish me luck.
