Rhys Robert Kronebusch

My new little babe! He was 7 pounds 11 ounces, 20 inches long. We love him! I am so glad that it's all over. Details will come later if wanted....I'm just too tired right now!

After two long, tiring, and extremely frustrating years, I did it!! I passed my medical transcription course and am now officially a "trained" medical transcriptionist. I am so happy. I got my results this evening after a LONG two week wait, 98% on my objective portion, 89% on the transcription portion. I am now done. WOOHOO!!! Now on to task #2, pushing this baby out. EWW. Not looking forward to that.

When things go so right!

Yesterday, I went to my doctor's appointment. It was just routine. Kaye came to take care of the kids since I thought Colby would quite possibly be scarred for life after having the doctor check out things best left for when he's married. Kaye is extremely excited about having the baby and he keeps harassing me about contractions and wanting the baby to hurry up. Anyway, as I was going in, Kaye said, "Maybe the doctor will tell you that she wants to get the baby out early." Yeah, right. As if any doctor would tell a woman who has never had a problem with pregnancy that she wanted to take the baby out early just for the heck of it.

WELL, it turned out that YES!!! When she checked me yesterday, she says that my baby feels to be at least 8 pounds already, has dropped so low that it would take next to nothing to get him out, and my cervix is nice and soft and ready for labour. I am going back next week and she wants to strip my membranes really good and she hopes that will put me in labour. Of course, that isn't a guarantee, but she really wanted the baby out (she thinks that I'm done) and so I'm assuming that if my baby doesn't come soon after that, she'll talk induction. She was saying like the next 24 hours after she'd done the swipe.

Who would have guessed! I'm excited to have the baby probably by next week, 2 weeks early. Of course, my due date as per my LMP was supposed to be June 6th anyway. Still, we were working with June 19th, so I was prepared for another 3 weeks.

Oh, sidenote, I also weighed in at just 0.5 kg heavier than 5 weeks ago. Sweet! That brings the total up to only like 10 pounds this pregnancy. Of course, Elijah was like that as well and I inexplicably came out the same 15 pounds heavier even after I had him, but I'm being optimistic here. I'm happy. Gaining weight sucks. Hopefully, I'll be a mommy of 4 next week. Yeah for getting this little stinker out of me!
