Still Cooking


Went to the dr. yesterday. I'm 2 cm dilated and 70% effaced. I'm still not really feeling anything so it doesn't seem like anything is happening to me but, supposedly, that is the best way for it to happen. Then I'll just ease into labor and not have much pain at all. That will quite a switch from last time. My guess is that she'll come next week. Why? Well, this week, our friend Matt is here and could be with Emma if it happened in the middle of the night and then my mom is coming on the 29th. So, I think it just stands to reason that it would happen when we would have to scramble in the middle of the night to get someone to our house. Either way, I'm sure it'll be ok. I'm feeling really well actually so I'm not that anxious. It would be nice if she hung in there until my mom gets here. When I was at the doctor yesterday, the receptionist said, "well you're all belly aren't you". That was nice. I told her, "yeah it's been nice, I carried my first pregnancy in my ankles". I can tell a little in my face but I can still see my ankle bones so this is a good thing.

I have our bags packed and though the nursery isn't totally complete, it is close enough. I have some paintings and stuff to go on the wall that are coming so once I get it all together, I'll post pictures. We have the camera packed and Adam will take his laptop when the time comes so we should be able to get some pictures up pretty quickly after Miss Chloe makes her debut.

Love from Above,
Dana

We were the "go to the house in the middle of the night to stay with the kid" people for some of our other friends so i would LOVE to do that for you guys, also. Unfortunately, it might take us quite a while to get there! We're excited for you guys! You get to hold your baby soon!!
