Here Comes Peter Cottontail...

If you are on baby watch, we've made it another week without any indication that miss thang will make her appearance. Technically, my doctor was supposed to begin checking me for dilation two weeks ago, but a) I'm not ready for that process {they have to get all up in your cervix and that is just as uncomfortable as it sounds}, and b) he has seen no indication that I've been remotely close to starting this labor.

I'm happy to say we have crossed all the must haves off the list to bring her home, so if I can make it through this next week I have no doubt in my mind the rest will fall into place. However, I still haven't made it to that 'cleaning phase' that everyone talks about, so we will see how that goes. I told Will that worst case scenario, if I go into labor the first thing he needs to do is call someone to clean. I know we will have family in town and the last thing I want to worry about is them showing up to a messy house. I know most relatives would understand, but you don't know how much of a cleaning nazi my grandmother is. Oy vey.

One of the main reasons I wanted to at least make it this far was that our friend Jo's baby shower was this weekend, and I was kinda in charge of decor. I had it all ready for them in case I did go into labor, but luckily I was able to attend the event and stuff my face. The theme was Peter Cottontail, which I happen to think turned out beautifully with help from Hannah's bomb.com diaper cake, and in an unrelated note...Karie made me Jo a watermelon cake again!




It's funny, when Jo told me she was pregnant, I was super happy for her but thanked my lucky stars that we were still child free. Little did I know...I was not only pregnant, but three weeks ahead of her. Whoops. Well, at least we got to go through this together and now we are both in the home stretch. The gang is actually taking bets to see which of us will pop first since she's already having contractions, so I'm just gonna guess we go into labor together. Women 'cycle' together, so maybe we've synced up our pregnancies too. Man what a great story that would be if our betrothed children are also born together.

That is the cutest shower!! So fun you girls went through these pregnancies together!!
My doctor didn't want to check me at 36 weeks but I insisted since we were traveling just a couple days later for Thanksgiving. I definitely didn't want to be going out of town if it looked like things could be moving along... little did I know that Mia was nice and snug in there and wouldn't come out until we kicked her out, ha! But I guess getting checked can bring labor on so some doctors like to avoid it as long as possible! I would have been on board as well because I was scared of the pain that came with getting checked. (It never hurt until I was checked in to the hospital and induced. The nurses mean serious business when getting up in your... cervix (ha!), yikes!)

I didn't get checked until my due date because I wasn't showing any signs of labor and didn't feel the need... So I was shocked to find out I was 4cm dilated! Our little guy came 2 days later! I never got that "nesting" urge until my due date day... And then it hit me hard that our guy could be coming soon so we went home and got the whole nursery ready right in time. I never got around to cleaning though which was no good, but I was so sick the whole pregnancy I just couldn't do it! My in-laws ended up going to our place and doing it all while we were in the hospital which was so so nice, but I felt so bad!
