Week 38
~ If You Don't Expect Much, You Can't Be Disappointed

That's what I told my doctor this week. Since I'm still carrying high, I didn't figure I'd be dilated at all. His was response was that anything would be good then, which was true. Turns out I'm 1 cm dilated, but he is definitely high and my cervix is still long. I wasn't surprised. He stretched me a bit, which is leading to what I assume is the slow loss of my mucus plug and some crampiness. He told me he'd see me next week, which I'm sure is probably going to happen. However, I was 1 cm with T when a nurse stripped my membranes, and I had him in two days. So I suppose it's possible that I won't make it to my next appointment. I'm not holding my breath, however. I'm still saying no to induction, unless I go over, and I technically still have 10 days to my due date. I really can't complain yet. My mom and kids came to this appointment with me, and we did some Father's Day shopping and went to lunch. It was a pretty good day.

My bedroom is almost done! I got the painting done, though it took me longer than I would have liked. We had friends come and move out all the furniture and help pull up the carpet. Then we ended up having plans and didn't get the pad pulled up or the staples and tacks strips taken care of them. They went back to our house while we were gone and did that for us as well. That's what you call good friends!! We got the floor down the next day, and then got busy with ball games and such. My husband is finally getting the wood work back down so we can put the room back together. We did get the bed and one dresser back in. It will hopefully get done today, but my stepdad is coming to level a spot in our yard for the swimming pool today as well. I think the closer we get to the birth of this little one, the busier I get. My nesting has been completely out of control this time, but I feel pretty good about the things that have gotten done! I need to do a major cleaning again, but with my bedroom spread throughout my house, I have to wait til I get it all put back together. I hate to clean around things.

And that's pretty much it. I'm mostly just waiting - semi-patiently - but at least I'm issue free at the moment!
