34 Weeks, and yes I'm still pregnant

She's still cookin' in there

Here is this week's  update:

- I am now 4 cm. dilated and 90% effaced
- She has definitely dropped some more
- My docs are pretty confident that I can deliver her vaginally now, especially since she's so small
- I have officially been home for a week now
- I am going crazy

I am pretty miserable at this point especially with this heat. I have to keep telling myself that the longer she's in there, the better off she'll be. I am resting as much as I can, but getting bored. I've been reading, wasting time on the internet, and watching shows on Netflix.  I wish I had the energy to really clean the house, but I don't. I am excited, scared, and a million other emotions about having her.  I am excited to meet her and see what she looks like, but I am definitely scared about the whole giving birth part.  I hope I can do it naturally, but who knows.  My OB's think I'll have her pretty fast once I start active labor since I'm already dilated.  Let's hope so! Until next week...

My hope is that she stays in there just long enough to be safe, but not so long that she's too big to come out the old fashioned way ;)

That's my hope too!

LOL all this waiting and anticipation is driving me nuts so I cannot even imagine how you are feeling. I'm so excited for you and keep checking out your status. She'll let you know when she is ready but hopefully it won't be too long... thinking about you and crossing my fingers that she is healthy yet small enough to come out the natural way... make sure you or Cary post something as soon as something happens...

The suspense is killing me but the longer she can "cook", the better for all of us. Cary was 3 weeks early with lung problems. She weighed 7 lbs. 12 oz. and still was a sick baby. They have come such a long way since then. I'm so excited about this baby and for the two of you. You will do fine when the time comes. Just knowing what waits at the end of that labor will pull you along. Ann T
