11 days left....

...if I don't go into labor this next week. Had my 37 week check up yesterday. I'm almost 2 cm....80 % effaced. If I don't have her earlier, I will go to the hospital at 6pm on 6/19. They will insert a cervagel (I forget the real name) thing that should start the thinning of my cervix and mild contractions, and may start a slow drip of pitocin. The Dr. said they could give me something to sleep so that when I wake up in the morning (How I'll actually SLEEP is beyond me), they can break my water and hopefully deliver that day (6/20). Everyone has their bets, but I'm thinking I'll never actually make it around to being induced. Of course now that I said it, it'll be 6/24 before I deliver! Eric and I went out to eat after the dr. appt yesterday, and as soon as we were done, I had about 4 contractions in an hour (mostly in the car on the way home). Once we got home, I basically laid on the couch. The astros game started at 7, I think I saw the first inning before I fell asleep. I couldn't get comfortable however, so Eric took me upstairs to bed at 8. I woke up about every hour and a half at first to go potty, then they got a lot closer together. At about 1 am I gave up and got up and sat in the glider and read for about an hour. I had 2 good contractions while I was up....but it's still nothing that really hurt. And since they weren't getting closer together, I went back to bed, waking up every hour. Since I had such a rough night, I am working from home this morning. Didn't want to get in the car and something happen. We will keep you posted.

Onto other news. I have put a picture of me, my belly and my new hair cut in here. And, a picture of the new living room. If you'd like to see more, let me know and I'll send them to you via snapfish. Enjoy!

I am so excited for you! It sounds like she won't share a birthday with Garrett. Be sure to give us a call. We can't wait to come down and meet your little one.
