I went to the OB yesterday (I’m at the point where I go weekly now). I told her that I was sure the baby was not head down, so she checked. It’s head down. And she announced that I’m 3cm dilated, 80% effaced, and at a -1 station. What that means — I’m probably going to give birth before my due date of 8/14. So, yeah.
Honestly, I’m ready. Mentally, not physically. I’ve put off buying the few things we need for the baby. I’m not sure why. I think I’ve been in denial. We don’t need much, just onesies, a new bottle warmer, booties (I suck at keeping socks), a new car seat, and a stroller (either a double jogger or a sit & stand one).
But, overall, I’m ready to have this baby. I”m ready to move on to the next phase of my family’s life.
Now if I could just decide on names…
