Today marks 40 weeks. Jillian's due date. And despite what my ticker says there are 0 days to go. My doctor's appointment today went well. It seems that Miss Jillian is quite cozy in my ute with plenty of amniotic fluid, a healthy heart rate and no signs of stress. The other good news is that I'm starting to make some progress as I'm 1 cm dilated and 50% effaced. This doesn't necessary tell me that much about when I'll go into labor...maybe next week, maybe this week, maybe tomorrow. But it is nice to hear that my body is actually preparing for this momentous event. My next appointment with another u/s and NST is Thursday morning, so we'll see what that brings.
In the meantime, I'm just trying to relax and get the house a little cleaner bit by bit. Jeramy on the other hand has been quite anxious, and I'm pretty sure he wants this little girl out of me more than I do! Oh and here is the 40 week belly pic. I think this explains why my back (hell, my entire body) is so sore these days.
