I’m not ready!

November 25th, 2009

Today I had a quick doctor appointment and found out that:

A. Baby is in good position. Head down. This is great news. I hope to not have to have a c-section. I read that 30% of births are now c-sections so I always have that worry, and if the baby were breech, I’d have to. But hopefully, she’ll stay there.

B. I’m 1 cm dilated and 50% effaced. You may or may not know what this means. If you do, you probably have kids. If you don’t, I’ll spare you the gory details. But it all means that my body is getting ready. Crazy.

C. Baby’s heartbeat was 130. Slower than normal. The nurse practicioner thought she was asleep.

Anyway, now my appointments are every week, so this is when it really starts to get exciting. And I’m ready in some ways, but really not in others! At home, the nursery is fully prepared with clean clothes, diapers and supplies and my Christmas shopping is basically done. Although I have some wrapping left to do But at work … I have a lot of training and prep work to do. Next week. I better get on it!
