Counting Down

So yesterday at my doctor's appointment I found out I'm one centimeter dilated. WOO HOO!! It's not really anything to get too excited about though. I remember one of my co-workers was 3 centimeters dilated for the last month of her pregnancy. The doctor said that Jack is probably about 7 lbs right now so if he ends up being full term he'll be an 8 lb baby. That's sounds nice to me!

Yesterday morning I was thinking about how much I've been wanting Jack to come and then it hit me...these are the last few days it's just going to be Owen and me. I really need to just stop and enjoy these moments because I will never again have only 1 child. Owen has had my attention all to himself for 16 months, but soon he will have to share me. Jack will never know what's it's like to have Mommy all to himself, but since Owen does I don't want to rush this time in his life.

With my second one I was a 2 and 60% efface at 34 weeks. They never thought I would even make it to 37 week. Yeah.....finally decided to go ahead and break my water a few days before my due date when I had been walking around for several days dilated to a 4 and 90% effaced!! Not to mention having SO many rounds of false labor! I think I drug my midwife out to my house AT LEAST twice. Those last 3 weeks were SO long, especially considering Elliott came at 37 weeks.

Despite being so uncomfortable, I felt the same way you did about my time with Elliott. Really do try to cherish this special time you guys have together. It all just goes by WAY too fast!

The pictures of you guys turned out really cute : )

Good luck with the delivery!
