If you’ve done the math, you know that baby Spencer is coming any day now so I thought I better do a quick update or I may not get around to it for awhile.
I’m technically 38 weeks and 2 days pregnant which would normally mean I’m about 12 days from actually being due but I have been progressing pretty rapidly and am already 4cm dilated and 80% effaced which is usually the point in labor where you get admitted to the hospital. I’m only missing some contractions at this point and I’m waiting for those to start up at any moment. If our little man has not decided to come on his own before this coming Tuesday, we are scheduled to induce. That means we are no more than 5-6 days away from meeting little William Becton Spencer! I can’t wait and am going to start trying some of the tricks of the trade to get labor moving on its own before the Tuesday induction deadline.
Oh yeah…and we moved…
So a few weeks ago, we actually did a super quick move back down into Dallas near White Rock Lake. We had a couple who had been interested in purchasing our house and William’s old house that we’ve had as a rental was sitting vacant so we decided to go ahead and clear one mortgage and move down to the rental property. Seeing that I was almost 9 months pregnant at the time of this move, I wasn’t really able to participate in much of the packing/lifting/unpacking/moving activites. Thankfully, we have AMAZING friends and our home group community pretty much got us packed and moved in a matter of a few days. We are completely settled into our new home now and the nursery is 100% ready for our little man to come home (I’ll post some pics when I decide to stop being lazy and take some). I really like our new place and it was actually the house we originally planned to live in when we first got married (until we stumbled upon our Richardson place). The thing I miss most about our other house is definitely the backyard. The dogs are having a bit of a hard time adjusting to their new (MUCH smaller) space but they will survive.
Since my last post I also had 2 amazing baby showers, one with family and one with friends, and am waiting for some pictures back to post on that fun-ness!! Thanks to all who were involved in helping shower me with love and get prepared for Becton’s arrival! Hopefully, this will be my last post before little man makes his debut into this world. I’ll keep you posted!
