Big News!

If knowing too much information about my personal birthing stuff is too much for you, don't read this!

But, I have big news! No, I didn't have the baby yet. It's not THAT big. I was feeling really sick on Sunday. Headaches, nausea,dizzy, etc. This carried on to Monday, so I called the Dr. You might not think that is enough to call on, but last Wed. I had gained 6 lbs in 1 week! That's more than I have gained in an entire month! I was SOOOOOO swollen with water retention. So, I was supposed to watch for signs of pre-eclampsia, etc.

Anyway, I went in to get my blood pressure checked and it was higher than usual, so they did a full check. Here is the BIG NEWS. I was dilated to a 2!!!! With both of my other kids, at 41 weeks, I was still at a 0. Whoo hoo.

I'm feeling great now, and everything is fine, but I am excited to see if I can actually go into labor on my own this time. And not be so LATE! (Brandon was almost 10 lbs by the time he finally came out!!!)

Cross your fingers!!!!

Well, of course you are going to beat me silly! Though, when loading the dishwasher I could SWEAR I was dilating like 3cm! They don't even start checking me until next week.

Good luck and hope you are ready! I am not ready - good thing I have a few weeks.
