9 to go

So I'm one centimeter dilated as of yesterday. Only 9 cm to go! However, don't get too excited. My doc still says we're looking at the first of January. Sigh. No, it's a good thing. I want E nice and plump when he comes out. That way I can be special with the breast pump as I have NO idea what I'm doing. Thank goodness for nurses and lactation specialists.

I also want to clean the entire house and organize pretty much everything. I spontaneously decided to bleach the whole bathroom today. This is very uncharacteristic of how I've been feeling this pregnancy up until now. Nesting is very real my friends, and it's a good thing or I would be too sleepy to do anything productive. I thank the evolution that brought me this obsession.

I got the pack 'n' play today, and the cloth diapers are coming next week. Once I get all the clothes into the dresser and closet I think I will feel a little more ready. I might even have time to decorate a little. I never had a chance with M because we were renting crappy apartments and it didn't seem worth it. But I love the new house and the blue walls in the boy's rooms. No white, hooray!

I'm quite jealous you're in nesting mode. Cause the mode I'm in involves being lazy and eating lots and lots of SUGAR! Good luck sister.

I'm just barely coming out of the lazy sugar phase, so that provides me with plenty of running to look forward to once the child emerges from my womb. Ah to run again...

You're getting close too! I'm excited! Have you won Matt over with the name Toph yet?

How fun and excruciating the end of pregnancy is!! I remember being 41 weeks and ready to kill anyone who said, "You're still here!" But nesting is a good sign. I was cleaning the bath tub when my water broke with Isaac. I think it is suppose to mean that you're close.

Good luck with the next few weeks and hopefully you'll dilate a few more in the upcoming weeks so that your labor will be easy??...uh, maybe faster! I was a good 4 (at 36 weeks) by the time I went to the hospital. AND, only 2 hours! Everything was SOOO much nicer the 2nd time around!

Very exciting!!!!
