36 weeks 3 days, Doctor's Appointment


Blood Pressure: 112/74
Fetal Heart Rate: 142
Measuring: 37cm
Weight: +1.5lbs (Ugh, since LAST THURSDAY??)
And now for the fun part:

1cm dialated and 50% effaced!

Yes, I know you can walk around for weeks and weeks with that amount of progress, but the doctor said, "not a bad way to start things off"

So that is good :)

We're ready, sitting here twiddling our thumbs, waiting for our little son to make his grand entrance. It is kind-of amazing. I never thought I would be so calm and collected about it. I mean, there is a baby coming in less than 4 weeks *hopefully* and I'm not running around like a wild woman. Everything is ready and I'm just waiting for baby to tell us it is time. I've been blessed with such a wonderful pregnancy, with very few reasons to complain, and with the continued hope that the last 3 1/2 weeks will be the same! I'm using these last few weeks as a time of reflection on the past 9 months, how our lives have changed, how our friends and family have blessed us, and what a MIRACLE the birth of a baby really is. Ok... so now I'm getting a little deep here, I guess I'll stop. I just keep remembering what my mom said to me the night that my Uncle Clair passed away, "I'm so sad, but I'm so happy. One life is lost, another little life is coming. Uncle Clair was just making room in the family for the new baby. He would've loved him so much. Just like we all do."

So sweet.
