Almost there!!!

I can feel that labor is getting close!! The last few nights I have had painful contractions that wake me out of a dead sleep, and I am just really feeling it. I was checked today at my appt and I am a stretchy 4 and 80% effaced. Cervix is also anterior so really it could be any time. I have a feeling she is coming in a week and a half I am not sure why?? Just a feeling. I went today and signed my other kiddos up for all their Summer activities and took care of a few lat minute things I had been putting off. I can't believe it is almost time and I will soon have her in my arms! Tomorrow I have a growth ultrasound which I am excited about since I haven't seen her since 19 weeks. Gah! We are getting there girls!!!!

Wow, you are at a 4! Congratulations, that is a lot of work you won't have to do in labor Smile And, sounds like it could be any day for you! I feel the same way, but am in total denial...

Yeah, totally normal for me I did the exact same with my other 2 kiddos. I was a little worried my body would do something totally different since it has been 7 years, but it seems to remember. It is kind of miserable to be crampy and contracting for weeks, but I will take it instead of having it all hit hard and fast at once, I have a ton of respect and admiration for ladies that have long intense labors! Once I hit 6 or 7 things usually get intense and I have a baby a few hours later, I am really hoping for that again this time too.

I can't wait to hear where you guys are at too!
