Well, I wish I had some exciting news, but there isn't any just yet. I went to the doctor yesterday and I've made a little progress, but still not enough! I'm ALMOST 3cm dilated and still 50% effaced and at a -1 station. The doctor hooked me up to the fetal monitor when I told her that Ethan was less active than normal the past few days. I got to sit for 15 minutes and listen to his heart beat and press a button every time I felt him move. Everything was normal! She told me that if I haven't delivered by next Thursday, they will plan on inducing me the following Monday...October 23. So by October 24, we'll officially be parents!
Lately, every time I call someone I have to start the conversation with "No, it's not time yet!" Understandable, considering he could be here any day now. Samantha (our cat) was not a happy camper for a few days when we took "her" chair out of the living room and moved it to Ethan's room. For 3 years, that gliding rocker has been all hers, and now it's gone. We find her sleeping in the most random places now.
My nights are getting more and more restless as the days go by. Rolling over isn't an easy task these days and Marc is constantly waking me up because I'm snoring. Yep, that's right...I snore. I never thought I could say those words, but there they are. Luckily, that should stop very soon!
It's hard to believe that D-day is right around the corner. My bags are packed and in the car. The phone tree has been made. The nursery is pretty much done. The only thing missing is Ethan. I look at my belly and think "Wow, soon that won't be there." Crazy...but I know someone wonderful will take it's place.
twelfth day of christmas: merry christmas!
