Thursday was my second NST and it went much better than the first. I ate part of a cookie at the start to get things going and she responded like a champ. Phew. I left this one feeling reassured rather than panicked, which is (obviously) the point. I'll have one in each of the next two weeks and we scheduled our induction:
Saturday, December 27th!
Two weeks from today we'll hopefully be holding our little girl. (She just kicked me. I hope this means she is equally as excited to meet us.)
R and I are spending this weekend in the mountains. We rented a cozy cabin, we went hiking, there is a roaring fire, and tonight we are supposed to get snow. I was reluctant to go away because there is a lot to be done at home, but it was a great decision just to have some time for the two of us. Last night we spent time talking about names... we haven't settled on one, but we narrowed our list. I'm having a hard time picking one at all because I think the perfect name is the one we gave L. Does anyone have any favorite names for girls they want to share? We are struggling!

So, yesterday a dear friend of mine had her baby. She was due about a week before me and her baby arrived early (and everyone is healthy and doing great). I need to confess something - I am jealous. She has been married just over a year and now - poof! - she has a little girl. Just. Like. That. And before me! I've been pregnant twice!
The worst thing is that this is a friend who I love and cherish and who has been incredibly supportive over the last year in particular and here I am having these terrible feelings towards her. Obviously I am thrilled on one level, but it is these underlying feelings that creep up from time to time that I dislike but can't seem to control....
