|Just a mini-update (x-posted)

Lacking in years,but loving as parents.
So I started to write a complete update, but I'm really not up to it. There's a lot to tell. So as for the short version, Billy and I are moved down to Florida (as I've posted about - we had to move from Maryland down to Florida to move into a new place here). Anyway, we were staying with my dad and his girlfriend since we got here late Saturday night, but my dad and Billy got into a big fight yesterday. Fortunately, his mom lives in the same neighborhood, so we came over here to stay. We had to ask his sister to watch the cats for us because his mom didn't want them here. We're just here for another couple of weeks until we can move into the new rental house we'll be staying in. We're sharing a twin-size bed...and that is a huge challenge. I'm not getting much sleep.
As far as the baby goes, I'm really scared of him coming early now because we're not in our new place and being at his mom's house isn't like my dad's. There's not much room for the baby to have to stay here. So I'm begging him to stay in until AT LEAST August 1st. I've already set up my medicaid and started seeing a doctor at the health department. I have an ultrasound set up at the hospital on Monday. They want to see how big the baby is because they think he's fairly large (the doc at the health department said the same thing as the doc in MD had said just by feeling from the outside...they think the baby is about 7lbs at this point). I know these things are not always accurate, so I'm not going to panic or anything. They're talking about induction and all that good crap, but I plan on refusing it for as long as possible - probably until about 41 weeks. But I have a feeling he'll be here before that. The doc at the health department didn't do a cervical exam. She said she didn't think it was necessary, but that if they think the baby is "large" when they do the ultrasound, she'll be checking me to see if my body is making any progress in hopes that he'll be here before he's huge, lol. I'm not worried about it - I'm sure he'll be a big baby...but I'm not worried about not being able to birth him.
Even the short version has become long...but anyway...more to come later.
