Daily Note: August 13, 2009

Guess who's almost 2 centimeters dilated? If you guessed me, you would be correct. My weekly check up went well today. The doctor said the baby is nice and low and that I'm one, almost two centimeters dilated. When she walked in and I was sitting there with the sheet over my lap, she took one look at me and said, "Oh. You're done, aren't you?" Clearly, it shows. I've been having mild menstrual cramps a few times per day for the last 5 days or so and the doctor says that means progress.

Anyways, knowing that things are progressing gives me something to go forward on. I called Jeff afterwards to let him know the good news, which was met by a beat of silence. Then, "I guess we need to pack that hospital bag tonight." Reality has arrived. We appear to be having a baby sometime soonish.

That's right - pack that hospital bag! You'll also love the sense of accomplishment that comes along with it. Maybe that's just me, but man did it feel good to check that off the list.

Good progress! Can't wait to see how the next few weeks go for you and if Edie makes her appearance early (I'm hoping for an early delivery for all 3 of us pregnant ladies).

Aww, ladies, I am finding myself a wee bit emotional as our pregnancies come to a close! It has been very special to experience it with you both.

Jill, this is so exciting!! I am so happy for you. Progress is good indeed. I am so anxious for news from you and Bets - I check Blogger 367 times a day to see if there is any news. When is your last day of work?
