36 weeks of growing a baby
I went to my weekly Dr appt this afternoon and I am very pleased to find out that I am 2 cm dilated and 50 percent effaced. I can still be like this at 40 wks and that would suck, but at least I know I'm not closed and that I am effaced. At least these contractions are doing something and I can hope to go into labor naturally. Who knows...could be any day now or it could be weeks! I kicked it in high gear when I got home though. Cleaning as always, making sure things are organized and I made sure to go up and down the stairs as many times as I could, didn't sit down because I figure that'll help speed things along!!! Then I remembered I better not push it too much cause I have to have enough energy to actually push the baby out if I do go into labor. The other day I came home from work and Brett asked me, as I was about to pass out on the couch, if we were gonna have a baby that day. I thought there is no way I would be able to have a baby at that moment because I was simply too tired...told Brett they'd have to c-section me to get her out if I did go into labor. Another nice reminder that I better take it easy!
