1 down 9 to go!

At my last appointment (thursday) the midwife checked my cervix and i was dialated 1 whole cm!!! YAY!! Not sure if she will check me again this thurday, but if she does i wont be suprised if i have progressed even more. Things are definitely winding down! The number one question is when and will my mom be able to make it or not. I really hope she can, but theres a big possibility she will have to wait til after the baby is born. We shall see!

Get to rockin' in that rocking chair and walking. This is what they told me before I had Steven.

I keep checking 2 or 3 times a day to see if there is any news.

YAY we have a count down now.
(here is some of that unwanted advice that you never listen to.)lolol
Drink lots of water. If you stay hydrated you shouldn't have any false labor. That is one of the first things my midwives would tell me to do towards the end of my pregnancies. Dehydration can cause you to go into false labor. It is no fun thinking your done and then you get sent home because labor stopped after you drank lots of water. Only happened once to me, but once was enough for me to learn my lesson.
Hope it all goes well. Will be praying for you.

Yay, it is so exciting. I was dialated 1cm and 75% affaced for 3wks. with Madelyn and my doctor thought I wasn't going to make it to my due date, but then I was 3 days over due when I finally had her. I walked, mowed the lawn, and took castor oil 2x's. Hop over to my blog and you will find my
"story". Good luck
