Only 8.5 cm to go...

Today was a big day - I was off of work and we got to find out how I am progressing towards getting this baby out!  As you may have determined from the title I am 1-1.5 cm dilated, 50% effaced and the baby should weigh about 6.5-7 lbs, depending on how skinny/chunky of a monkey he/she is.  The doctor thinks we probably have around a week or so left to go, but at this point anything goes really.  Hopefully the baby will be more on time than his/her mother ever is! 

On another note - we finally FINISHED the baby's room! So here are a few pics...  

Jess' baby shoes
Window wall
Closet Wall
Crib wall (we made the sign)
I drew this for my grandparents in 1989. :)
Changing Table Wall
So we are pretty proud of ourselves, but the pics definitely do not do it justice! Hopefully lots of you will be able to see the room in person. :)


  1. Wow y'all did fantastic without being gender specific. Good luck! I never got past 2 cm before I went into full on labor, and then pitocin got me the rest of the way!

  2. I was dilated 2.5 cm for WEEKS! And my little man was 2 weeks past his due date. So you never can tell what will happen. All I can say is, let your body go into labor on it's own, if you can help it, and don't go the induction route. It's much better without any extra "help" from drugs. Your body knows the right thing to do! Praying for healthy baby and healthy momma! Hang in there. Your precious little baby will be here soon. I'm so excited for you!! :)
