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.
