Those of you paying attention to my pregnancy counter thing may have noticed that I am 38 weeks 5 days pregnant today. (Incidentally, I have a picture of me at 38 weeks, but I keep forgetting to take it off the camera and put it on the computer. I'm sure I'll post it sometime.) This means there are only 9 days left until my due date. That's in the single digits people! And that's a little startling. Not that I didn't know it was coming, obviously, just startling in the same way that waking up the morning of a big test is startling. Like-- oh man that's today? I should have studied more! Oh well.

I'm not really sure where I'm at with all this. Part of me is totally ready, all set to go; the other part of me is saying-- we're having a baby? When did this happen?! But you know, nothing I can do about it now. Anyway, still not dilated, only having a very few contractions, but I'm 80% effaced so I'm sure my body will get in gear sooner or later. Crazy.


  1. Elsha! I'm antsy already for your last 2 weeks. I know your counter says 8 days, but I'm giving you a few extra! Can't wait to see Kalena!

  2. I too am so excited! On our way to the hospital, I was thinking...maybe we should wait a little longer. It'll be great. I can't wait to see your baby - maybe we'l have to make a trip down soon!

  3. Yay! I remember feeling the same way...both times.

  4. awww...i wanna have a baby. oh wait! i am! whoo hoo for us!
