The Next Step

I went to the doctor today. I am 38 weeks and she said that I am dilated 1 cm and am probably starting labor. Obviously some women remain dilated 1 or 2 cm for weeks, but I really really hope I'm not one of them. My back has been hurting, my feet and fingers swelling, and I'm soooo ready for the next step! I DO NOT want to be induced unless there is some serious medical reason for it, but I'm ready to meet this little guy.
I am officially off work as of today. YIKES. I know I'll be busy when he gets here, but what about the meantime? It's frightening to have a solid schedule at one workplace for 7 years and then suddenly everything changes. Adjustments are a bit unsettling. What if I don't have him for another month? Obviously it's a possibility. I'm really hoping it doesn't go that way. I've heard that next week is a full moon. Lots of babies are born closer to full moons. Please, PLEASE!!!

Say a prayer for me!

I think you need to take naps! Many MANY naps. Because you will not sleep once the baby shows up. Ask any mother.

I highyl suggest you sleep as MUCH AS HUMANLY POSSIBLE. Because Lord knows that once he arrives, you won't be sleeping... ever again.
