OB update

I just got back from my 37 week checkup and I'm dilated to 3 and 50% effaced - sweet! Dr. Fothergill says my cervix is favorable, so if I am 5cm or more next week, we're going to break my water and have this baby!! She's coming soon!!! In an aside, I find it mildly amusing that when a woman is pregnant, it suddenly becomes socially acceptable to discuss a part of her anatomy that would otherwise be completely verboten.

I hope all goes well... I think I was dilated to a 3 for about a month before Peter made an appearance - in fact, I was already at a 7 by the time we got to the hospital - Yikes!

That is a good start! I have sat at a 3 for a while with each of my kiddos...each ended differently. You never know!

There is always anxiety for your firstborn (then second...so on, your baby of the family). I found it hard to go to the hospital and leave Taylin, knowing I would come back with another little one and she wouldn't be the center of our lives 24/7. All roles shift and it works out!

I can't wait to hear the news...I am here to help if and when you need it!!!
