Finally, something!

I had my doctor appointment today and I am finally dilating, ...only 1 cm - LOL - so i know i still have a ways to go, but at least it's something! I haven't had any contractions or anything like that yet though, doctor says baby is much lower and in a good birthing position, so that sounds promising!

doctor also says she really doesn't think i will go past my due date and with how short and soft my cervix is already she predicts a fast labor, so she said i should go to the hospital even if i'm not sure what i'm feeling when i feel it.

we shall see!

yea we aren't doing a regular thanksgiving day anyway due to the fact that we don't want to travel anywhere with me this pregnant and my dad is working (he's retired but works at a football stadium so he has to work on thanksgiving) - my mom and sister are just supposed to come up with food and cook so that i don't have to go anywhere and i can be comfortable whether i'm pregnant or had the baby, at this point the biggest dilemma is my mom "should i defrost the turkey?" LOL... we can always do thanksgiving another day Smile i just went for a walk hoping to move things along haha

Sounds positive! Smile

I bought a ham because I wasn't sure about a turkey because once defrosted it supposedly has to be cooked within 2 days. Guess I'll have a Chrstmas turkey this year. lol

Good luck, I hope she shows up soon! We (me DH and DS) did Thanksgiving on Sunday just in case Carson decides to show up today or tomorrow.

you can do it Marissa. We didn't have a turkey either. i was too afraid if i did a full thanksgiving we‘d have a baby that day. we just did a pot roast in the crock pot.
