So I was 36 weeks on Wednesday. It's getting so close but it still doesn't seem real! I mean, it seems real to my body. Which is huge, stretched, pimply, dimply and downright uncomfortable. But the fact that we could have a baby in this house by the end of the month...that's kinda not real yet. I have all the stuff ready..but I don't know if my brain is ready. One thing I do know, is that my husband is ready. Even if the reason he's ready is because he's taking a week off from work when baby comes. Jason has been SO busy at work these days that I see him for about 2 hours a day. This cold snap has had pipes busting all over Nashville, and it seems Jason has to fix ALL of them. He says that taking care of a newborn for his week off will really seem like a vacation. That's how busy he is. We both just keep saying "let's just thank God that you have a job!" Which is so true these days.
So I start going to the dr weekly now. She starts doing those fun "checks"..you know what I mean. Well, we had a concern that this little bundle was still breech..cause he was for awhile there. So when I went on Monday, she gloved up and did her check and announced "you are 2 cm dilated, 50% effaced and he is head down!" Wow! I knew she had really gone for the gusto when she stuck her hand up there, but that fact that she can tell where is head is already! WHew. Weird! I told Jason this after the appointment and he was amazed. Jason: "so if I stick MY hand up there, I could feel his HEAD???!!" Me: "umm..no." Let's stick to shoving your hand in people pipes at their houses, not my "pipes". Even in my I've never had a baby before opinion, I think we're off to a good start for 36 weeks! Only 8 more cm to go! Whoo-hoo?! I'll keep ya posted.
