So last week I went to my midwife appointment. I had been feeling some changes and saw some "signs" that labor was getting closer. I shared these with my midwife and she decided she should check my progress....WELL...at 37 weeks I was 3 cm dialated and 100% effaced! YIKES! She sounded just as shocked as I was. So, she sent me on my way with high hopes as she said..."make next weeks appointment, but I'm sure we won't see you!" yeah right! Well, I made it to my next appointment which was today...when they asked if I wanted them to check me this time I said, "No way!" I haven't been contracting much and the last thing I want to hear is that I'm dialated 5 cm with no sign of impending labor! :) So, with 16 days to go, baby J is quite the low rider as he/she has descended very low...makes for quite the funny profile I must say!
I'm trying not to think too much and keep up with my usual routine, but I am so excited to meet our little one! Even Ethan is getting excited as he asks every day if our "baby" is coming today. It's so crazy how fast pregnancy goes...from those first little kicks to the moment you hold your little one in your arms in the end. Every day I am absolutely amazed that God has blessed me to be able to bring another little one into the world.
