Baby Update!

Happy Friday!  Patrick and I just returned from an appointment with our midwife
and I thought it time to update everyone.  Everything continues to
go smoothly and "by the book".  My only recent complaints include
inability/uncomfortable sleeping and KANKLES!  It’s true – there
is no longer any part of my body that resembles a standard ankle…
they look far more like tree stumps at this point.  But if this is
the worst side effect of pregnancy that I have to endure, then I will
consider myself VERY lucky!

We’re now about 38.5 weeks along (out
of 40 for those of you that don’t know) and you’re considered full term
at around 36 weeks… so we’re ready for launch!  And at this
point, I’d rather this baby decide it would like to be home for dinner
TONIGHT, rather than wait another week and a half to two weeks. 
God forbid we should go past our due date at this point… I am SO DONE!

As for the nitty gritty details (CAUTION: If you are at all squeemish about details, then you’ll want to skip the rest of this paragraph!) the midwife did an internal check and determined that we’re 50% effaced and 1 cm dilated
As you veteran mothers know, while this is exciting progress, it
doesn’t really mean much as far as when the baby will decide to greet
the world.

On a funny note, Patrick is getting a bit antsy at
this point.  He keeps asking me if I’m done "hogging the baby
yet".  How adorable is that? 

 We’ll keep you
updated!  Unless I go into labor sooner, our next appointment is
Friday July 1st.  There will be an update to follow that

    Yay! I’m so excited, I can’t wait! You better just wait a few more days though so that I don’t miss the delivery. Take it easy and make sure you and Patrick go on a few last dates this week before you’re relegated to the house for a few months. ;)

    Oooh! This is all very exciting. I am glad you gave us an update, I was starting to get anxious! So glad to head that the kankles are the worst thing so far. But those will go away.

    Rest up, and I can’t wait to meet your little one!

    Been wondering how it’s going. Thanks for the update. I love how Patrick wants to hold the baby, you’ve been doing it for almost 9 months, you really should share. ;o)

    Safe, fast-ish, smooth delivery to you! (after Heather gets there.)
