My midwife told me last week that she didn't think I'd make it to my due date. Aggghh!! Exciting...scary... 'Course, she can't predict these things 100%, but my cervix is doing all it's supposed to to get ready for the labor and birth process.
I kind of felt frantic after being told this, and made a list of all the things I still need to do.
Saturday, Corey and I finally made it to the hospital for a tour. I always feel more comfortable going into a situation with some familiarity. Walking down those hallways kind of freaked me out - 1) I'm not real fond of hospitals (who is?!), 2) I can't believe that I've come to this point in my life...I'M about to have a baby!
I bought a few more baby supplies yesterday. I just don't want to have to go out and get anything immediately after baby is born or have to send Corey out...:)
Today, I spend all day in the kitchen preparing a couple meals to freeze. I now have 3 meals in the freezer...doesn't sound like much. Maybe I'll get a few more done before contractions start.
Last night at church, the guys started a "pool" (no real money involved - not sure what the "prize" will be) on what day they think baby will be born - cracked me up! I guess every date's been taken from 5 days before to 5 days after. My husband picked the 24th, unknowingly...that's the day exactly 40 weeks after the day we're guessing baby was conceived.:)
I'm feeling ready, as far as getting things done goes. Ready for labor to actually begin...I don't know about that - I'm pretty nervous! I need to do a better job of reading my affirmations on my bathroom mirror!
