Within the week.....

Another quick update!

"Within the week" is my doctor's prediction at my appointment today. I am now close to four centimeters dilated and 100% effaced! He actually thinks it will be soon, as he says I have "a look" about me. So we shall see......

After my appointment the girls and I went over to a friend's store and picked up some more cloth wipes, and a waterproof bag for the cloth diapers. The two women that own this natural store are part of our learning community, and both happen to be there rearranging the store around, so we had a nice time hanging out with them and their children. It's only been a week since we had seen them and it felt like much longer then that. Analese found a princess nightgown that she liked in their consignment pile, and Mara picked out some puppy dog leg warmers. Analese is in love with her nightgown, and actually put it on over her dress and wore it home :) Anyway-it was so nice to connect with them. One of the owners is also the owner of the farm where the girl's school is at, and has offered to come watch the girls if we need someone there quickly, and has also offered to come get the girls once the baby comes and let them play in the loft for a few hours. I will probably take her up on it, as the girls really miss being out there and just being surrounded by so many people who lavish them with attention and affection.

So that's my update for now. I am having lots of lower pressure but nothing more then that. I am getting excited to meet this baby soon, see exactly who has been kicking me so much! I am hoping for a few more days, as we ordered the girls' digital cameras as their "gift from the baby" and they probably won't be here for a few more days :)

Until then, we just plan on spending time with the girls, as they have been needing us more these days. Last night we took them outside in their pjs to catch fireflies. It was just so amazing, as Analese has been waiting all month for the fireflies to show up! We ran around in the dark, played hide-n-seek-with the highlight being when Greg hid up in the tree :) Such precious moments....of course then this morning Mara used a marker and put dots ALL over her legs...."they fireflies Mommy".

Yay! Here is hoping for a sweet, peaceful labor. I wish I could be there. Keep your go with the flow attitude in your birth. I can't wait to see this little one.

Ahhhh!! I can't believe....within the week??!! I'm so excited for you! You're evening with the girls sounds so fun and adorable! I can just see them in their nightgowns catching fireflies.
Good luck with the birth. I think of you every day! Love you lots!

thanks, I am excited too! And oh so tired today. I am so tired and cranky today...it reminds me of the day I went into labor with Analese so who knows?
I so wish you all could here too! I finally packed a bag and got everyone's phone numbers written down last night.

I can't believe it's been 9 mos since you found out you were pg! It seems like just yesterday (although I'm sure it feels alot longer to you). Hope you have a nice, easy labour and I'm thinking happy, healthy baby thoughts for you. Can't wait to hear about it and finally meet the newest member of your family.
