According to my doctor yesterday, I'm currently 1-2cm dilated! :D

This isn't to say that labor is imminent - apparently expectant women can be ~2-3cm dilated for weeks at a time - but I have been having contractions more frequently (and a bit more painful as time goes on), and given the fact that I'm pretty much full-term (39 weeks today, and about to pop) and baby is the right size and fully developed, it *could* mean it might happen soon. Like next week!

I already have my hospital bag packed, baby room is go, house is clean, and I've been cooking up a storm lately (and freezing stuff like lasagne and stir-fry and soup for later re-heating). The only thing we haven't done is practice installing the carseat in my car for Devin's ride home, but we both figure we have at least a few days after I go into labor where John can work on it.

I'm so anxious and excited, and at the same time a little bit scared. I sincerely hope his head's not too big. gah.

*post will be edited later to reflect latest ultrasound pic. ^^

You and me both...I'm not sure which delivery method is worse for pain/healing, but I just hope I don't have too much of a rough time with it, either way!

AWESOME! You go girl, hope everything goes swimmingly :D

(ps, apparently the post office decided the Cool Thing to do is lose a big ol' package then wait a couple weeks before letting me know T_T derp.)

Oh! I forgot to tell you - I got the Similac shipment. Thank you so much!! :D I still don't know if I'll need it, but it's good to know that if I *do* need it that we have some formula available on hand. Here's hoping breastfeeding goes smoothly!!

Sweet! And ya, I'm definitely all for breastfeeding, but hey one can never be too certain with babby, right? Even if it's just stuck in the back of a pantry for the "just in case moments" ;)

omg this is exciting, countdown time!!

Congrats Misora! This must be a very exciting and anxious time. Though hopefully not too anxious. :) Soon you will have a beautiful little boy. Good luck to you and John!

Thank you!! Yeah, there's some anxiety. I think it's a given based on the fact that I've never done this before and it's the "unknown"....I have to just keep thinking of the reward that will be on the end of it. :)

I'm so excited for you! You'd better spam the hell out of us with ultrasound and pictures when the baby arrives! :D

I can't believe its almost time. How exciting!!! Make sure you have tons of diapers because seriously those first two weeks bb will go through them like crazy. That was theone thing that really caught me off guard. :D

I. Imagine your next post will be letting us know bb is here. Best wishes for a happy b-day.
