what you all have been waiting for.

Ok, I lied. I know what you guys really want is to see pictures of the little parasite, but he's still content with our current arrangement. But I have second-best; some belly pictures.

34 weeks. I felt huge then. Ha.

35 weeks. I felt like I couldn't possible get any bigger. Ha.

36 weeks. I was convinced I would give birth this week. Ha.

This child has other plans. And I guess they do not involve his mother seeing his father anytime soon.

But it's not all bad. At my last appointment I was 3cm dilated and 80% effaced, and Nicola is REALLY LOW and in position to be birthed (he's just leading me on I guess). And tomorrow will be a week since that appointment so I imagine at my next visit I will have progressed even more (yay!). I just keep telling myself, the longer this baby waits to come out, the more I will have progressed without real labor, and the faster he will come. Right?

  1. Gosh 3 cm and 80% effaced already? Just do some jumping jacks or something :). We can't wait to meet him!

  2. I don't know if it's true, but that's what I would always tell myself, too. :)
