4 am

It is 4:00 am.

I am awake, obviously, and have been for the past hour or so. I cannot get comfy. My back hurts.

SO

I will update you on our baby Rigg situation. I went to the Dr. on Monday. I am dilated to 4, or was on Monday. My Doc changed my induction to early Friday morning because of the change in me. SO, if nothing happens before then...we will have a baby Friday! She is also on call today. So if I go into labor, I would prefer it to be today or Friday...I would SO love her to be the delivery Doc. I have been praying that this would be so. I keep telling myself that God knows when this baby is due, He has a plan and it is better than one I can come up with...but I would really like my doc to deliver. She knows me, she knows the captain...she knows our situation. I will just keep praying...these prayers are more of a confirmation to me that God is in control...I have to keep reminding myself of this.

My moms (mom and mom-in-law) came over on Monday to help me clean...my house sparkles...or at least it did when they left. Riggs clothes are all sorted into size, hung and put away. His room is finally complete. I was going to take pics, I was going to show you, I had the best of intentions...but the batteries in the camera are dead. So it will have to wait...maybe later today.

Maybe.

Cari, you say, you did not post a Tuesday of praise.

I know, I was...lazy. I went to Target in the morning with my mom...then I spent the rest of the day reading a book...from start to finish. AHHH...it was divine. So I apologize.

I have been wearing the same shirt all week. This is for multiple reasons...the first is it is one of the only ones I have in my possession that is long enough to fit over my belly. The second is I do not want to do laundry...So fabreeze, perfume and no spillage will keep this shirt on my back another few days. That and the fact that it really does not smell...yet.

I am going to try to find something to do...maybe sleep...or just lay in bed and watch the captain sleep...I have not done that in a while...maybe I am overdue!

Would you only try to convince us all at 4 in the morning that the shirt you've been wearing all week doesn't smell? :) That gave me a good laugh....

I am excited that you are dialated to a four and I will be praying too that your Doc is the one who delivers Rigg. Your reasons for wearing the same shirt make perfect sense to me. You go girl. I am so excited for you. By the end of this week you will have met your beautiful baby boy. Keep us posted. Peace to you and Captain this week. -jen

I enjoyed reading these last 2 posts today - your Sunday morning experience made me cry, as I can't imagine how it must feel to constantly miss your baby.

I hope you are able to make it through these last few days comfortably, and that your labor and delivery are quick and easy! I'll continue to pray for you. I can't wait to see pictures of beautiful Rigg, even though I don't know you all! I hope he brings you GREAT joy, and I'm sure he will.

Okay so now I am really jealous. I went yesterday and she said "Maybe 2 1/2". Four sounds great right now. But I am praying for you all this week and I will continue to do so. I am very excited for you. I am walking today so maybe I will make it to the hospital by Friday but I am not holding my breath!

What a blessing to have your moms come clean your house! I bet they can't wait to meet their grandson. I hope you get to meet Rigg face-to-face today.

i am guessing your shirt does smell, but that's okay, mine probably does too - and I have no excuse. and Rigg's room is not quite complete, but close! praying for you all and baby Rigg. a few of you are really in a race for the finish here!

Ok in your defense to the blog world, I hugged you today and there was absolutely no smell (I was going to make a Zicam joke but maybe I'll skip it)!! Seriously you were cute as a button and smelled as sweet as ever!!
Love you!! b

I am so happy to hear baby Rigg will be here soon! I will be praying for fast, easy, pain free and exciting delivery for you!
I am however bummed that I will not be here for a week and half and I will probably miss your announcement on here :( Anyhow, still thrilled and I can't wait to see his room and pics of his beautiful face! Praying for you and your family!!
