Well, yesterday I clocked in at 37 weeks. That means that I have three weeks or less until the little guy makes his world debut. I have to admit that I have my fingers crossed that this happens sooner rather than later. My body is pretty much at it’s limit, not to mention my sanity. Let’s get this show on the road little one!
I didn’t mention it earlier but I went to Labor & Delivery (LD) two weeks ago because I was having some contractions and a “pulling” feeling down there. I called the doctor’s office and they said just go to LD at the hospital just to be safe. When we got there, they checked my cervix and I was dilated to 1.5cm and 50% effaced. So, they decided to take out my cerclage a week early. Painful is an understatement. I will not get into the details, but let me say that this was not something I would wish on any woman. Ever. But, the good news is that it is out and I am “ready to go.” Meaning that if I continue to progress with labor they will not stop it.
The nursery is pretty much complete, we have the crib ready, shelving and storage are in place, the dresser/changing table arrived on Wednesday. I have a few decorative things on the walls, etc. but still working on that. I decided that I want to really take my time and find the perfect things for in there instead of rushing. Clothes and bedding are all washed and put away. All we need now is the occupant.
