I had my last ultrasound today. Miss Scarlett is measuring around 6lbs 7ozs. She was sucking her thumb and her other hand was over her face so I did not get any good pictures.

Then went to my NST - all is good. Contractions are measuring 12-15 minutes apart and I can definitely feel them. They are still on the weak side.

I ran into my doctor in the hallway and he was going to L&D to deliver a baby but he said to go to the office and have one of the nurses check me out if I wanted to. (the perk of having your obgyn clinic at the hospital) I am dilated 1 cm!!! I have never been dilated before full labor before so this was exciting. We are thinking about 2 more weeks before she comes.

I cried the whole hour home. I had to pull over at one point. I can't believe this is real. I can't believe after all the pain - the 2.5 years - the 4 miscarriages - the disappointment - the roller-coaster ride - after all of it... My dream is coming true.

If you can feel the contractions, I bet it will be a lot shorter than 2 weeks. Glad everything is going so well. You deserve it!!

It is so funny that you wrote this... I was thinking today "Oh yea, I feel this way now but once I am in transition I know I will be screaming out how I changed my mind and to put the baby back and stop labor" LOL


Courtney - you have Red all worried that he is going to miss the birth now, LOL. He made me laugh. I told him to stay in GA until Friday as planned.

I am so happy for you. I have a feeling she is going to be here before we know it. I agree about telling Red he has to stay until after she is born.

So exciting
I am not good at guessing when baby is coming I know some people can be dilated for weeks before baby comes.
