Ready to Go

I just got back from my 36 week appointment, and I am dilated to 1 cm and 70% effaced. Which means, I am ready to go into labor any time! I was in the same position at Lizzy's 36 week checkup and I had her 3 days later... so we'll see! It's getting very exciting now. At least this time, I have my hospital bag all packed and ready! I watched my childbirth / Lamaze DVD a couple of days ago, and I've had plenty of braxton-hicks contractions to practice my breathing on, so I'm feeling pretty good! I'm definitely sick of being pregnant in this heat, so I am so excited to not be pregnant anymore! Next time, I want to try to have a baby in March - that way the 3rd trimester is in the winter, but the baby is born at the beginning of spring, just in time for cold and flu season to be over!

Oh good luck!! We are heading out of town on a TEN day road trip, so if it happens while we are gone, have Jason text Alan's phone! I can't wait to meet her!! I have a little present we'll have to bring by. Enjoy!!

I know what you mean about the heat! I swore up and down after Alex was born that I would NOT be pregnant in the summer again. Sigh. I'm pregnant in the summer and giving birth during the full blown cold season. Oh well. At least this gives us an excuse to have a nice quiet travel-free Christmas. Hurray! Good luck with the delivery!
