I haven't been very good at doing weekly updates of my pregnancy on the blog. Basically not much has changed besides the size of my stomach. I haven't had any complications, weird cravings or emotional breakdowns (worth sharing). This pregnancy has been pretty easy, I hope that the delivery will follow in the same track. Chad and I did take birthing classes, and it has helped us both have a better idea about what to expect (basically the unexpected). We also toured the hospital that I will be delivering at, it's nice to know what it looks like and where I will be.
This week has been a pretty fun and eventful week. The weather has been so hot here (80s) so I have gone to the beach two times, and went swimming on both trips. I normally never go in the water but it's the only way to cool down, and I don't feel pregnant when I am in the water (although I probably look pretty funny swimming by myself with a big bump).
I think all the busy-ness has really paid off, I had a Doctors Appt this morning and I have dilated to a 1 and am 70% effaced. Last week nothing had happened, so I am pretty excited to know that my body is getting ready for the biggest, scariest, most exciting thing it has ever done! I think about this little guy and what he is about to go through, and how confused he will be when he comes out. Hopefully we won't look too scary to him :) We are so excited to me him. I picked out his "going home" outfit and also one for me. I need to put the hospital bag together and I think we should be ready!
