Getting Ready for the Little One

So I know it has been forever since I have written a post.  This last month has been so crazy.  It started with 2 other baby showers which were awesome.  I was so thankful for all the encouragement and gifts!  Then I needed to get the nursery ready so I spent the next two weeks finishing up in the baby's room.  Washing everything that I had just received, prepping the remainder of my cloth diapers, picking up medical essentials and organizing everything else.

Then out of nowhere, I had contractions 5-7 minutes apart for 2 hours.  I saw the doctor the next day.  He said the baby is at a station 0 which means he is really low and is engaged in my pelvis.  He said there are a lot of women who go into labor at 40 weeks and they have to push their baby to station 0 because the baby is so high.  So basically that means when the time comes, I will have less pushing to do which is great.  BUT, he also thought it meant that I was going to go early since I was only 34 1/2 weeks along when this happened.  He put me on bed rest for a little while to ward off labor.  It has been almost 2 weeks since then YAY!  I turn 37 weeks on Thursday which is technically full-term and can officially deliver at Family Beginnings on April 8th.  We aren't hoping that I go into labor early, but we are praying that we at least wait until the 8th.

So the last couple weeks after I got off bed rest has been work, doctor's appointments, chiropractor's appointments, eat and sleep.  Very busy!!  But, it will all be worth it soon.  I can't wait to meet our little one!!

All that being said, it might be a while before I am able to post again.  I really wanted to finish first impression reviews of all the cloth diapers, but I just don't think that is going to happen.  I will do my best, and I hope you all stay tuned!!
