Progress Update

Still no baby, but lots of baby news as Schwabel Baby Central. I had a doctor's appointment on Wednesday. I had another non-stress test due to decreased movement (the baby's movement really hasn't decreased - he's always been a pretty quiet baby and the doctor wanted to make sure everything was okay) The baby looked good and I had a ton of contractions!

Also, for some reason my blood pressure was high and the doctor asked me to return on Friday to have it checked again (I had it checked 4 times on Wednesday). During today's appointment, the nurse practioner said everything looked good, my blood pressure was down, and I had made a lot of progress. She speculated Baby Schwabel would be here by 3-7-2008!

Seeing as 3-3 and 3-7 are the two dates that keep sticking out in my head, I'm feeling pretty confident that our little guy will be here soon - and I might have time to fit in a movie or two ;)

Frequently Asked Questions - Super Pregnant Schwabel Edition

A lot of our friends and family have been asking us for updates regarding the baby. Here's some answers to your FAQs.

How do you feel?
I feel pretty good, considering I'm going to have a baby shortly! I have aches and pains, but I'm sleeping well.

Are you all set for the baby?
We've been prepared for a good month - at least - so we are all set in terms of things, diapers, etc. However, I'm not sure you can ever be set to have a baby! I have no idea what's going to happen in the next two weeks!

Is the baby here yet?
No baby yet. Yesterday I had a nice dose of false labor (at least it was insightful!), but still no baby. I have a doctor's appointment tomorrow, so hopefully we will get some good news.

Oh no - leap year is on Friday! You don't want a leap year baby do you?
When Dave and I first discovered we were expecting, I really wanted a leap year baby. Now I'll just take a baby - the sooner the better! Leap year is a-okay with me.

Make sure to send your baby-wishes our way!

The Nursery

My friend Sarah asked to see a picture of the nursery, so here it is. I used AutoStitch to put this together from several shots.

Waiting for Baby Schwabel
