Well, we made it to 39 weeks...much to the surprise of many people!

And we had a fun maternity session a week or so ago with my favorite photographer.  If you live in Northern Kentucky or Cincinnati...check her out!  She's awesome.


Progress
At my 36 and 38 week appointments, I opted in for the oh-so-fun internal exams.  I've been 2-3 cm dilated since 36 weeks, 50% effaced, and his head is already at 0 station.  Guess that explains the horrible nerve pain that I've been feeling non-stop since he "dropped" around 36 weeks.    To many, this doesn't seem very exciting, but coming from a girl who's only been dilated to "maybe a cm" with the other two pregnancies before going into labor, this is super exciting for me!  Heck, I'm already further with this one than where I got my epidurals with the other two!


Prepping for Knox
I have finally made progress in preparing!  We officially have all of the 0-3 and 3-6 months clothes washed.  All of the blankets are clean and waiting for our little guy!  The bassinet is set up and ready for our little man.  We've purchased the very few things we still needed {aka wanted}.  His room is now painted and ready to turn into a nursery as soon as big brother and sister's new shared room is done!  I'm feeling pretty prepared!


Is this it?
While my plan is to labor at home for a long time, I've had several nights in a row where I wonder if labor is starting.  Last night, I slept in 15 minute increments...yeah, it wasn't fun.  The contractions were strong enough to keep waking me up {plus I had to pee 5 times}, but they weren't enough to be considered "painful." And they came very 15 minutes like clock work.  

Even though the same thing happened with Grayson {until the night my water actually broke}, I still keep getting a little excited that each night/day might be the big day...we'll see!

Don't forget to follow on Facebook to keep up with baby updates!  It's much easier to post there than here from the hospital ;)
