So after I wrote last weeks post, we had our 36 week check up. Turns out I’m dilated to a 1, 20 % effaced and baby is at a -3. While I know none of that means anything just yet, it made me wonder a bit. I’ve never actually known I was at a 1 with either Maggie or Charlie. I would go in and be at a 0. Then go in and be at a 2 and have the baby within a day or two. I’ve never actually known that I was at a 1. That tidbit of information had a few people on my softball team wondering if I should really be playing, but my doctors input was – this isn’t your first rodeo. If it hurts, stop. I can definitely feel that we are getting a little closer, I feel the baby putting pressure on my hips quite often. Here are some fun belly shots of the baby making my belly look all pointy and cute.
So I spent some time going through names again in case this baby was a boy. I came up with a few I like, but nothing I am crazy in love with. The name John likes the most, I’m completely against using. The name I like the most, he is completely against. So back to the drawing board we go.
I also realized that while I had written this post on what to pack in your hospital bag, I hadn’t actually gotten my bag packed, so I should really get on that fairly soon. I should also probably throw some things in a bag for Maggie and Charlie, just in case they end up staying the night some place else.
So that’s what I am up to right now. I’m pretty excited for a few products that are on the way for the baby for review and I think you will LOVE them. But keep your eyes peeled this next week for my review of the Combi Shuttle carseat.
