So close, yet so far away!

I am 39 and a half weeks pregnant! I can actually see the light at the end of the tunnel, but it seems so dim. Of course I am not the first woman to feel this way :). I only have two more days of work and don't go back till late May. Though I will miss the students, I realize this is the most important thing I can be doing. Jeff and I are so excited to see our little guy. We decided on the name Liam Jeffrey Meyers.

I have also decided that if I don't go into labor by my due date (Feb. 14th) I am going to ask to be induced that day. The morning sickness is back, I can't feel the tips of my fingers (from swollen hands), I have cankles, my shoes don't fit, its hard to breath, sleeping is a chore now, and I feel like a bowling bowl is sitting in my pelvis! I hate complaining, but I feel justified in asking to be induced. We are definitely ready for the next chapter of our journey, holding a sweet little baby boy.


  1. Oh I so love the name...love it, love it, love it and so very excited for you! Good luck with everything. Let me know when you are coming down this way or I would love to pick your mom up from the airport and bring her to you. Please! Prayers being sent your way!

  2. You are so close! I know its hard...the end is such a pain. But its going to be so great to hold him! Who's your doctor? I don't think you have any reason to feel silly asking to be induced, my doctor says its just as dangerous for them to come a week late as it is a week early (which really isn't dangerous at all, but you get the idea) Just rest easy knowing he'll be here soon, and then no time in your life will ever fly so fast!
