Yesterday I had my 38 week OB appointment and I was 1-2cm dilated and a little effaced. If I’m closer to one or two I don’t know, but I guess it doesn’t really matter. I’m still feeling contractions throughout the day and usually at night they get sorta regular, but they don’t hurt except maybe a little every once in a while. Definitely NOTHING like my pitocin induced contractions.
The nursery is just about done. Last night Lil’ J and I painted the final letters of the funky alphabet wall we’ll be hanging up in the baby’s room tonight. I had the letters laid out on a table at a friends house and Lil’ J walked by and shouted “ABCDEFG!” then proceeded to sing entire the alphabet twice and ask if she could help. I made sure to set aside a couple for her, and she loved it.
A few friends of mine helped me pull the whole thing all together in less than a week and I think it’ll look really nice once it’s all up on the wall. Then I just want to make some yellow chevron curtains to hang with some kind of giraffe print valance or trim accent, make/buy a cute sewing machine cover that matches the nursery, stick 70 vinyl leaves to the naked vinyl tree branches on the wall, and then find a glider chair cover or new pads that coordinate with the room. WHEW! That’s not so bad… I’ll take some pictures once I have the letters up, so I can at least show mid-way progress.
Now another blast from the past. Don’t let my cute style in these last few weekly photos fool you, I definitely have moved on to wearing yoga pants on a daily basis the last few weeks, you’ll see…
Oh, and don’t forget to put in your arrival date/ boy/girl guess by Monday, that’s the last day to enter and the winner gets $50.
