baby update

Today marks 39 weeks! 
At my appointment yesterday, I was 1 cm dilated and 75% effaced...but I have been for the last 3 weeks, so that doesn't mean anything. I've been having tons of Braxton Hicks contractions, but unfortunately that also doesn't mean anything. We've got all the baby clothes washed and put away, Jamie's room (and ours, since he'll be in there at first) is all set up and ready to go, the freezer is full of food for after he's born, my hospital bag is packed, and basically we're at the point where we're just playing the waiting game. Fingers crossed that baby brother comes faster than Jamie did!


  1. I'm REALLY trying to not get my hopes up, but I really really want this baby out next week. SIGH.

    I don't have the bags packed, and we don't have the "bassinet" thingy up and ready. I'm afraid of them just sitting around for 2wks. :(

    Babies are hard.

  2. Oh, I know it! I went to 42 weeks with Jamie and it was miserable. I am hoping so much that this one will come sooner but I really wouldn't be surprised if he sits tight for another 3 weeks. Knock on wood.

  3. I hope he's born on his due date. March 21st has been a very good birthday to me.

  4. Way to be prepared! Looking good.
