Still waiting...


Yes, that's right (sigh) I'm still here and waiting (impatiently) for this baby to come. We've got 3 days until my due date and really really hoping to go into labor soon. I had a visit with my doctor last week and found out that since I'm going for a VBAC, I cannot be induced. Something that I didn't know about and kind of bums me out. That means if I do not go into labor by my 41st week, I'll have another c-section that I will not look forward to. Although-I did hear that if you opt for a cs without laboring, the recovery is much easier, a little reassuring, I guess.

So here I am waiting and watching the minutes go by. I did get my new Stampin' UP! Catalog today in the mail which brightened my day :) It is so beautiful...I cannot wait for you all to see it if you haven't yet. I'll be taking that to the hospital to memorize every page, I will guarantee that!

I made this little journal notebook this afternoon. It uses our new Ginger Blossom DS papers. Aren't they gorgeous?!! I just love the color combo. For the letter 'j' I actually printed a mirror image of a 'j' on my computer onto the backside of my ds paper and card stock and cut it out with my paper snips.

Thanks for stopping by...Enjoy your Christmas. I'll keep you posted about baby!!

No baby yet? Well, keep stamping that will keep your mind off of it, right?

Hi! I just found your blog and I love your projects (will be adding you to my daily visits ;), specially this notebook... I'm falling for that paper <3

Oh, and a random fact... I was born a week after the due date, so there's still hope. Merry christmas and happy new baby! ;)

Having a repeat c section is easier without the labor. I had my first after 40 hours of labor and then 3 repeats they were so much easier to recover from than the first. God's blessings on your new little bundle!
