39 weeks with baby #2

 **I will have to add the belly picture later as our computer is down**

**Also, due to simplicity, I'm just pasting my notes instead of the usual format. :)

3 days of false labor contracting no more than 10 minutes apart at any point. False in the sense that they aren't progressing me much but not false in the "OH DEAR GOD, SOMEONE LIT MT TORSO ON FIRE" kind of way.
Occasional sharp twinges in cervical area.
Urge to clean and nest but pain/exhaustion winning out.
Thank GOD for tylenol pm!!
Packed by the back door with phones, ipod and camera charged fully at each second.
Not hungry. Didn't eat dinner last night and woke up not hungry. Not sure if that is a sign.
Mucus plug and bloody whatever...gone.
3-4 cm dilated
70% effaced
-1 station
very low and engaged
bottom to the right of my belly button with feet firmly planted in left side....praying she gets into good position when labor starts. Babies that start from this side have a higher instance of going sunny-side up.
She is wriggling away in there so not sure how far off labor is.
Everything that I will regret not having ready is ready.
I have ingredients for lactation cookies in pantry. Sweet treats for nurses and us are made and packed. Made gobs of chocolate covered pretzels and banana bread last night to go with the chocolate covered almonds.
Mel and mom are sleeping with their cell phones on loud every night (or not sleeping by the sound of it...we're all excited!).
I go to sleep showered and blow-dried every night.
House is clean and all baby gear is set up and ready to receive baby girl.
Greg put in pumpkin seat but I think I'm going to go by a fire station because it's very wobbly.
Big brother is packed and excited for a night with Nana Clea. He is such an agreeable and happy little boy.
I gained 8lbs total in this pregnancy so far. 


About Me

My photo
I'm a new wife and an even newer mom. I have a secret dream to be super-mom. I love to craft, cook, dance and fill my life with as many adventures as possible. I'm slightly crunchy granola but enjoy a good steak. I'm right brained and type B (with some type A tendencies). I thrive best when I get to use my creative juices. I dabble in photography and party planning. I play piano and have a dream to learn the cello. I want to make the most of this one, short life I find myself living.

About This Blog

This blog was originally intended to be a personal journal of my pregnancy journey and all that that entails--shared with only a few close family members. It was a way for me to keep them posted on all things baby and occasionally post a picture of my growing torso so they could see the progress. After several posts, I started to get hooked on other blogs and became motivated to attempt to do more with mine. We'll see how it goes....
