    Working on it as best we can with a 2-1/2 year old that doesn't totally get it. She has been "helping" prepare the clothes and equipment, we have read several "big sister" type stories, and have presents for her when the new baby comes -- for the hospital and also the day we come home. We have also talked to her about "sharing" Mommy with the baby and have told her the baby will be here soon. She tells us the baby is coming from the store!

    Daddy has been spending more time with her and doing fun stuff with her -- going to the store, swimming at the YMCA, taking her to gymnastics, etc. He plans to continue once the new baby is born, so that should help too. In general, she LOVES babies and is very nurturing. We hope it continues once she has one in her own home!

    So, just realized I didn't post an update after my appointment last week (36.5 weeks):

    Everything is progressing nicely!
    • Blood pressure was 100/60 and urine test came back fine
    • I gained almost 2 pds since last week, so almost 30 total now
    • Fundal Height is measuring about 34.5 (still 2 weeks behind, but again we were told this just isn't a huge baby)
    • Babies heart beat was in the mid 140's to low 150's
    • Baby is head down!!
    • AND, cervix is about 30% effaced, very soft and about a fingertip dilated. For comparison purposes, I wasn't at all soft/effaced at my 37/38 week appointment with Kendall, but had progressed to about 50% and soft (no dilation) at the appointment (a week later) just 8 days prior to delivery of Kendall. I'm guessing this baby will be a bit early, but who knows!
    • Next appointment is 4/1/09
    • I also had lots of cramping and spotting after the cervical check -- it lasted about 3 days. She said my cervix is posterior and had to really push to feel it.
