Fully cooked!  Quincy is officially full term today.  Basically, all this means is that I am “allowed” to go into labor any time now and no one will try to stop it.  It also means that it feels like I am smuggling a bowling ball between my legs.  But, I’m not complaining!  I still want her to stay in there for another week and a half as I have a few things I’d like to check off my to-do list.  Massage?  Yes, please.  Haircut, yes please.  My mom getting here first?  Yes, PLEASE.  Waiting for the 10th so I can be disgustingly pleased with the “orderly” way in which my children enter the world?  Bonus and yes, please.  Lots of recipes call for baking your dish with the lid off for an extra 15 minutes or so to brown the top.  I’d like to do that!  Brown up a bit, Quincy.  …Well, don’t really brown up.  That would raise some interesting questions that I’d have no good answer for.  But, you know what I mean.  Feel free to keep cooking!

I went in for my 37 week check yesterday, which went well.  As well as an appt can go when you wait an hour to be shuffled into a room, told to remove your pants and then sit there for an hour, sans pants, waiting to be “checked.”  I always love the apologetic nurse that pokes her head in after 45 minutes to say, “everything going okay?  She’ll just be another minute!”  Uh, yeah!  It’s great.  I’m just chilling out here with no pants staring at the wall.  I’m goooood!  Anyway, eventually the Dr did come in and the progress report was 3 cm, 50% effaced, almost 0 station and s o f t.  Making some solid progress from week to week.  If I keep this up and get my wish of delivering on the 10th, I’d be nearly 5cm and “ripe” by then!  Even being at a 3 to start has me thrilled to bits already!  It took 12 hours with Naomi to get to a 3!  Which reminds me of my favorite part of the appt.  My OB is totally convinced that not only will I be able to VBAC no problem, but she thinks I’ll have a fast labor.  A fast labor!!!  I wanted to hug her!  I’m not going to (more…)


Full term!

Today, I am officially full term!!!!!!!!!!!

Emersyn now has my permission, to arrive whenever she feels she’s ready – preferably not on a Monday or Tuesday, but if she’s that way inclined, so be it!  A very weird thought to think that in 2 weeks time – at the latest – my long awaited baby girl, will FINALLY be here…  I am feeling very relaxed about everything, quite at peace really, just a little impatient!!!!!  I know deep down I’ll be waiting until my cesarean date to meet Emersyn, but the thought that she could arrive at any stage now, is very exciting!

Gaby is on her first ever school trip today – preschool are taking her class, to the closest library – in a bus!  Gaby was so excited about it, before we left for preschool, and I have to admit, I was (am) VERY excited for her to!  Suddenly she is doing all these ‘big kid’ things, and it is making me realize that she’s not my baby anymore… well, she’ll always be my ‘baby’, but she’s growing so fast…  It’s amazing.. I feel priveleged to be able to observe her everyday… to be there when she learns something new, or makes a realization about the way the world works.  It’s the best part of being a Mummy!
