Pregnancy Update & Pics of Baby Brother's Room!

With only 5 days left until my due date we are anxiously awaiting the arrival of BBC (Baby Brother Cline).  I have been dilated to 3 & 75% effaced for 3 weeks now.  I have also had constant contractions ranging from a couple an hour to every 3-5 minutes at times for about 3 weeks now.  Two times we have been packed and ready to go to the hospital only for my contractions to suddenly slow down after being close together for 2 or 3 hours.  I have been a little frustrated...ok, a lot frustrated and have just so felt so unsure of when  it is the "real deal." 

So yesterday at my appointment when my doctor gave me the option of an "Elective Induction" at the end of this week I found it almost too tempting to pass up.  However, after prayer and discussion with Adam, family, and friends we have decided to not be induced until it is more of a doctor recommendation rather than just us choosing to be induced early b/c we feel like it.  Our prayer is that I would still have the baby naturally by this weekend b/c my sister, brother-in-law, and grandparents will all be here from out of town for Easter.  BUT we trust that the Lord's timing is best and we definitely the well-being of our son to come first. 

So enough of that. Here are pictures of BBC's room. I have worked hard to make it fun and boyish on a tight budget.  It has been really fun to hand make many of the things in his room. I love it!

 I got the crib blanket on clearance at target and ordered the crib skirt online to match.  I found the blue sheet on clearance as well. 

I found the blue rug on clearance, the table lamp and star picture frame at a second hand store, painted the green star, and re-used the canvas tote and "bebe" letters from Haven's room.  My mom and I made the curtains and I made the triangle pennant banner on my own (I'm a little proud of that one!).  We bought the dresser used from a co-worker of mine shortly after we got married.  We still plan to paint the nightstand white to tie in with the crib and the changing table.  Oh yeah and we re-used the glider from Haven's room which my brother-in-law had found on the side of the road right before Haven was born.
Here is a close up of the curtains and banner.  The ribbons have stars on them which I think are so cute.
I found the changing pad cover on clearance, re-used the totes and added little tags, found the sign at Hobby Lobby, and made the stars by mod-podging fabric onto foamboard.
Here are the rocket and stars that are above the crib.  Also mod-podged these.
