I'm happy to announce I'm the proud Momma of a baby boy!! I went into labour on Monday at the doctors office. All in all everything went very smoothly and we're both home already. He was born at 11:07pm September 24th. He weighs 7pounds 12ounces and is 19 3/4" long.

I'm very tired and sore but am doing well. Pics are soon to come.

Went to the doctor today. I'm coming along nicely... 3-4 cm dilated and he's in the ready position. She stretched my cervix so it could happen within the next couple of days. She doesn't think I'll last a week. They booked me in to get induced on the 5th but I probably won't have to wait that long. If the baby doesn't come sooner a day will probably open up sooner to be induced. I really don't want to be induced though since I hear it's definitely more painful.

Callie will be here in only a few hours!! I'm so excited!

Well Friday is the due date. I've been home since last week and am finding it very boring. I'm trying to enjoy it but the whole waiting for labour plus not much to do makes it hard. You may notice I changed my profile pic. It's one of the pics I got done by the photographer. I've uploaded a bunch to flickr so go check them out. We did get a lot more pictures than that on the CD but I wasn't about to upload 90 pics... plus I don't look so great in some of them.

Other than that nothing new here. Just waiting and waiting. Of course I'm also very excited about Callie arriving here on Thursday! Only a few more days!!!

Since Stephie asked I will update. I’m over 37 weeks now and getting very anxious to have the baby and have my body back. I’m still working until the end of next week. Truthfully though I’m not sure I can last that long. It’s a lot more difficult than I thought it would be to continue working.

2 weeks and 1 day until Callie gets here! I can’t wait to see her (and munchkin)! It’s going to be great to have them around.

Last night we went to the photographer for the ‘Demi Moore’ style belly pics. I think the pictures are going to look great (despite my face being chubby with the swelling and baby weight gain). The photographer did a good job of making Mr. IT and I feel comfortable and I ended up having a blast doing the pictures. We’ll also have them on CD so I’ll definitely upload them.

I can’t believe in a short while I’m going to have a baby. I’m going to be a Momma… wow. Mr. IT is going to be such a great father too. He’s so excited. I don’t think I could have found a guy that would treat me better than he does. He’s been absolutely wonderful throughout all of this.

Edit: My last day at work is going to be Monday. My feet are unbelievably swollen. They look like hobbit feet without the hair. I'm looking forward to being off work but I'm going to miss it too. I'm really hoping I don't get too bored. Mr. IT had a dream the baby was born Sept. 8 at 11:07am so if it was more like a premonition then maybe I won't actually have time to get bored.
