T-2 Days

The cerclage is coming out in 2 days!! The procedure is at 9am at the hospital and it shouldn't take long at all. My OB said he'll check me afterwards to see if I'm dilated at all and then they'll send me home! Some people go into labor a few days after removal and some go all the way to 40 weeks or even later. I would love to be somewhere in the middle but I guess all we can do is wait and see. Every person is different so there is just no way to know. Had another NST today and all is looking good.

I finally feel like I'm ready to go...the hospital bag is completely packed, the room is ready, the clothes are washed and the car seat is installed. I've still been randomly cleaning and organizing around the house and I just made my first meal to freeze last night. A couple more meals to go and then I'm all set. I'm not sure if I can say I'm emotionally ready, but I may never be. Just thinking about him actually being here still feels overwhelming and surreal, but I'm also really excited. I just can't wait to meet him!

I also want to add (just for you Shay) that when I do actually go into labor I had already planned on bringing the computer so that I can update along the way. I'm pretty sure my labor is going to go quick but you just never know. I'm a dork like that and definitely want pictures and notes to document everything for as long as I can. We'll see how it goes though.


  1. Girl, you better skype me and let me watch :)

    I'm so excited that I pretty much can't say anything else about it except that I'm excited. All I want for Christmas is for you to try to call me and then have to let me go because he's crying, or needs a diaper change, or needs to nurse and it still requires both of your hands because he's new, and you're new.

    Or maybe you won't even answer the phone because he's asleep on your chest and you refuse to move an inch, even though you have to pee.

    Yeah, that sounds like the perfect Christmas :) Get me that!
