1 down....

9 to go! Had an OB appointment this AM and everything is looking good...I am even 1 cm dilated.

Now, I know that means absolutely nothing in terms of when I am going to go into labor (my money is on that I am going to only after getting induced) but makes me glad that all these painful contractions that I've been having are (1) doing something (2) not in my head.

I feel like my life is a series of doctor appointments at this point. From now on, I see the OB, perinatologist and chiropractor weekly.

My saving grace has been my iphone. Just discovered the TV shows that you can buy on itunes and put on your phone. Really handy say if you have a 3 year old that accompanies you on all these boring appointments. We've got "Caillou", "Backyardigans" and "Mickey Mouse Clubhouse" all on there now and she's so good in the waiting rooms with me.

E and I at 36 weeks. Really not sure what is going on with E in this pic. She looks cuckoo and I look ginormous, as to be expected.

I have a feeling little missy will be here VERY soon :) She just needs to keep tight for a couple more weeks! Don't want her to come visit me at work tomorrow.

I love Backyardigans. You look cute with your belly out to Egypt. I can relate to the feeling. On the plane last night I tried to read off my laptop on the pull-down shelf thingie they have attached to the back of the seat in front of you. Seems like there's not enough room for that maneuver without using my belly as part of the "shelf."
