Still waiting to meet our baby boy!!!!

We are now a week past our due date and still no signs of labor. Mom and baby had to have a No Stress Test to make sure that the baby is still getting oxygen and food. The test will occur twice a week till he is born. The first test went well they told Lynnette that everything looks fine. We have another test on Monday. Lynnette is ready to have the baby she is tired of bring pregnant however she still wants everything to happen naturally she doesn’t want any interventions. The doctor is willing to let us wait it out also as long as the baby doesn’t get to big right now the estimated weight of the little guy is 7lb 14oz. We are very excited and can’t wait. We thought we would have had a baby by now. We still haven’t picked out the perfect name yet so maybe that’s what is taking so long he knows he doesn’t have a name. Getting prepared for a baby sure was stressful: Making sure we had everything we needed and I still think there is stuff we don’t have yet. I thought Lynnette was going through the nesting phase a couple of weeks ago when she told me she wanted me to rake the leaves before the baby came I tried to explain to her that I can’t rake the leaves with snow on them She wasn’t having any of my excuses that’s when I realized it was no nesting phase it was Lynnette being Lynnette :- )

I am glad to hear that Lynette wants to wait until the baby is ready to come and that the doctors are letting her. I understand the name thing James didn't have a name until two hours before he was born. Good luck with raking the leaves with the snow on them. :-)

Ah Gil and Lynette! Tell that little man to come out already! lol. Raking the leaves when snow is on the ground, good luck haha, maybe use your snow blower or lawn mower haha. I cant wait till your little baby comes, it'll be so exciting!

I am glad to hear the doctors are letting you wait it out. Hopefully it won't be too long. Masyn came 10 days after he was supposed to on Lynette's birthday. Best of luck!! Keep us posted! Love to you all!
