Pregnancy Update

Yesterday I had my last Doctor appointment before my c-section. We had both been a little concerned as it seemed that I had "real" contractions early Tuesday morning. I was so uncomfortable in my back and legs and there was a pattern to them at 8 minutes apart that I got up to start packing my bag. Thankfully getting up and moving around helped, lengthening the time between contractions and I was able to go back to sleep. Nothing more happened this week other than my normal and fairly frequent "practice" contractions.

My main concern has been that I would go into labor and have to rush to the hospital for a c-section. I have never thought of it in past pregnancies so I am not sure why I worried this time. Anyway, I am only dilated a fingertip and my cervix is still far back. The baby's head is right there which is why I am so uncomfortable walking and have a lot of pressure. But the doctor is fairly confident that I will not go into labor before next Friday.

Unfortunately my c-section is scheduled for 12:30 p.m. which means I need to go the morning with no food in addition to the fact that I have plenty of time for my mind to start worrying.

The boys have been counting down the days all month and George announced this morning that we only have 7 more to go! So soon I will be holding my little one and we are very excited!

You look marvelous!

It's all baby, i see, so you'll pop back into shape in no time, i'm sure.

I'm so excited for you to be having your little one this week. I can't wait to find out if it's a boy or girl! Maybe we can share our baby's real names via e-mail? It's so hard to name them and so much fun, too.

I'll be praying for you on Friday!
