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. ^^
