Abi Update

Just a few notes for those who are starting to get curious about Baby #2. We’re pretty much ready: the hospital bag is packed, my time-off paperwork is signed, so now its just a waiting game. Here’s some other notes (for the squeamish: medical details follow)

  • She is still due March 20th, but we’ve been told to expect an early delivery
  • Nic had a doctor’s appointment yesterday and was told her cervix is soft and she’s 1cm dialated…
  • But the doctor scheduled an ultrasound for March 10th, so obviously he doesn’t think Abi will be arriving before then.
  • The other night both Nicole and I had a dream that Abi turned out to be boy. The first ultrasound was pretty clear when we saw it, but now we’re both wondering if we should have a boy’s name picked out, just in case.
  • We will be live-blogging the delivery just like last time, and also posting some pics to the Flickr feed… that is assuming there’s time for it. Everyone we talk to warns that baby #2 will come really fast, so we’ll see if that’s true for us.

Of course, the big day will be announced here, and if you want to be on the cell phone/text message notification list, just let us know.

    @marti: that’s insane! what a trip that musta been, getting all ready for twin girls and having one boy instead!
    @me/tara: you’re on the list!

  5. Can’t wait! Since your delivery will probably mean another sleepless night for me, it would be nice if you could try to work it into my March Break so that I don’t have to teach the next day! I’ll be waiting anxiously for the big day, and the chance to meet her (or him) in a couple months!

  6. Ha ha, Jen, we’ll see what we can do. That week actually would be ideal for us too! We’ll put you on the text message notification list!
