1 cm and full term and OMG

I had my first and only cervical check last week. It was all the fun I could have hoped for, but the most surprising part was that I'm dilating already (HI INTERNET WELCOME TO MY INTERNAL ORGANS. Tune in next week for the labor live-blog!). I'm 1 cm and the kiddo is already starting to engage, which might explain why my pelvis suddenly feels like it's going to split in two.

This totally shocked me, as did waking up yesterday and realizing this is now an "early term" (full term is now 39 weeks but 37 weeks is still a milestone) pregnancy. The little one is all the way developed and from here on out he's just getting smarter and fatter. Chubby babies are happy babies.


It's not like I'm bursting at the seams and will go into labor any minute now, but hearing that yes, I will someday give birth was enough to get my butt in gear and get some house stuff done. Nesting is all I want to do. Plus, we had our amazing baby shower (our family and friends are the best!), so now we have a lot more stuff to get situated. Here's a few things we accomplished...

Somewhere to put the baby! The Pack n Play will likely live on the main floor so while I'm cooking or reading the kiddo can be put in a safe place. S/he's going to sleep in our bed for the most part (we think...).

Does this onesie make my enormous belly look big (don't let head-on shot fool you, this thing is 3 dimensional!)?

All the necessary baby attire categories: diapers, towels with hoods, sleep sacks, onesies, blankets, wee tiny socks.

This is the cutest thing I've ever owned (this is the one on my belly in the pic above).

Baby laundry makes me so happy. Famous last words...
