Coming Attraction: Baby #5

I know it's been over a year since I sent anything out into the blogosphere. Life gets so busy and something fall WAY down on the priority list. For me blogging was one of those things. We will soon be welcoming yet another boy into our family. The ultrasound pictures were pretty clear so I would be shocked if this little him turns out to be a her. We're just adding to our collection of boys and all of the joys that come with them. I have been on modified bed rest with this little guy since I was a mere 20 weeks along. But now that I am only a couple weeks for "D-day" my bed rest sentence has been lifted! Ever since Sunday (so 6 days, if you can believe it) I have been having contractions and labor pains. There have been 2 times, once on Monday and the other last night, on Thursday, that we thought we might be heading to the hospital soon, but the contractions eased and here I am, still waiting. I don't particularly enjoy the waiting game. I get frustrated by the unknown! However, I had an appointment today with my midwife. I learned that I am dilated to a 2, I am 50% effaced and the baby is at a -3 station. I'm not quite as far along as I was hoping but at least there has been some progress. We are all getting excited and a little anxious to meet this little guy!
Here he is showing off his muscles!
