My last OB appointment on Thursday I found that I was 2-3cm dilated and still 50% effaced. She also said she could feel kiddos head right there. And yes, I would believe her since she feels, at times, that she is just going to fall right out of me. So, gosh, that could mean that delivery is a few days away or I could go for another couple weeks. It's always such a guessing game, eh?
I have been back to regular activity for a week or so now. I am definitely slower, but I welcome the chance to get up and walk, sit up and, dare I even say, clean. I never thought I would miss cleaning. In fact, one day I spend the entire day clearing out two junk drawers, organizing my closet and doing laundry. Yes, I was EXHAUSTED by the end of the day, but I had reached such a euphoric state from cleaning and organizing that it made it all worth it.
I have been having some contractions. Of course, mostly at night when I am trying to get some much needed shut eye. But they don't last more than 2-3 hours and are still very irregular. Usually when I get up to move around or drink a few glasses of water they go away. So, I think by that, we are going to be looking at a delivery date sooner than later. I hope sooner, as I am not quite sure how much more my skin will stretch.
Here I am at 36 weeks preggo...I am pleased to announce that hubs and I finally agreed on a name. Ironically enough, it is the name that we have both liked pretty much since we found out that we were pregnant with a little girl. So that is a huge relief!
Stay tuned for the arrival of our little princess!
