I took Emma to preschool. I went to HEB and got a huge blueberry muffin and a coffee.
I had an OB appointment at 9:50. Tony met me there. I got a flu shot, and weighed 178 pounds. I was 4 cm dilated and 90% effaced. We scheduled an induction for Oct 1.
I had lunch with an old friend. I had tater tots and a grilled chicken sandwich. It was really good.
I picked Emma up from school. We went to the mall and bought a baby book and calendar for baby brother.
We came home and I dozed on the couch while Emma watched some TV. Tony had a big meeting and dinner with his boss and and a client. I put Emma to bed myself. I read her several stories and sang to her. She fell asleep quickly and I watched her, enjoying some cuddles. I thought it might be the last time in a while I put her to bed.
Tony came home with a steak, courtesy of his boss, for me. We split it and enjoyed talking together. We went to bed about 11pm.

Last night I finished Emma's panda bear. His proportions are not exact, and in this picture he appears to have a giant arm and smaller than normal head. But he's done! It took me about 4 hours to complete the stuffing of the head, attaching the nose and eyes, and then the head and limbs to the body.
I hope that Emma likes him. I plan to give him to her tonight when Tony is home. Maybe we can record it. I sure hope she likes it!

We are just about ready for him to arrive around here. We have the car seat in the car, Tony is packed and I'm about 95% packed. We still need to figure out what will happen with Emma when I go into labor. Of course that will depend on when that happens, but we need to write up some plans so we are prepared. We still need to hang things in his room, but we have the bassinet set up in our room so he'll be in with us for a while.

Tomorrow I will go for my week 37 appointment. I'm sure I will have gained another 5-10 pounds but we shall see. I am certainly ready to no longer be pregnant, but the labor, birth and newborn stage are going to be a challenge so I'm not really ready for that. We have just a few things left around here to do to be ready. We do have the car seat installed, lots of clothes and diapers ready, and the bassinet is set up in our room. We are almost all packed for the hospital, I have a few last minute things to get packed.
Lastly I am trying to finish the panda bear I started for Emma a few months ago. I'm so close, if I would just sit down and do it I could probably finish in an hour or so. But my concentration skills are lacking right now so I haven't done it.
