Well today is a significant milestone--Shannon is now considered "term"! Yay! Any time she wants to come now is just fine with me! We've had 4 false labors so far--we only were at the birth center the first time though, as the labor came on during a routine weekly non-stress test. We live 2 minutes away from the hospital/birth center, so we can afford to wait till we really think "this is it"! :)
I just can't wait to meet our little girl! I wonder how big she actually will be, and whom she will look most like...will she have Dave's long and narrow feet, or my wider feet? Will she have a Beauchamp or Foucachon nose? Eyes?? Mouth??
I really did think last night was "it"! The contractions were getting pretty painful--I had to just concentrate on relaxing and letting the pain go and breathing calmly; (plus they were a couple minutes apart)...it's hard to gauge pain you've never felt before...but still, I think I will "know" when it's the real thing!
Shannon's nursery is all set! And I got a little pink baby bunting for half price at Macy's yesterday so she won't get cold coming home. It's been COLD here lately! 21 degrees was a high!
I also finally went and bought a Boppy nursing pillow. I splurged and got the "luxe pink" slipcover for a few dollars more--it's a soft velour stretchy fabric. I can already tell it's going to be a life saver with nursing!
Well, I will keep you posted!
Have a wonderful day!
