36 Weeks!

I don't have any fun pictures to add to this little post, but I had to document it! 11 weeks ago when I went on bedrest, I wasn't sure this was a milestone we were going to hit and I must say that I am pretty darn proud of myself and everyone who has helped along the way! The dr. told me I had to get to at least 36 weeks and I did it! On Monday at my appointment I was 1cm and 80% effaced! He told me I could walk this baby out and within reason my restrictions were lifted! Woo-hoo!!! I seriously feel so happy, lucky and blessed :) I had 11 contractions in the 40 minutes I was monitored on Wednesday - the nurse even asked what pain scale they were on, haha! I said low and she said she thought they were doing there job! The little one looked great on Wednesday too - the little stinker somehow had there feet in front of there face, SO FUNNY! The baby's head is down WAY low and I can feel it, I said situated somewhere directly on top of my bladder :) I don't even have to drink a glass of water to have to go to the bathroom these days :) Everything is looking good and we are officially in baby month just waiting on this sweet, sweet little one to decide when to arrive!!
