Baby Update #2

So, we met with our doctor again today, and not much has changed. I'm still at the same progression I was last week, though the nurse said he's descended a bit more. We're still waiting on the culture results from the test they did last week.

Alright, so finally I'm posting a picture of me being pregnant. This was taken last night, so it's about as up to date as you could want.

In other good news, my last day of work is this Saturday! Woo hoo!

Baby Update #1

So, we had a Doctor's appointment on Wednesday and it's the first of the weekly visits we'll have until the birth of baby Nielsen. For this visit, they take a sample culture to test for bacteria. They have to see if they need to give you antibiotics so the baby doesn't get sick being delivered. We'll get those results next week.

Now, for the big news...

I am 1 cm dilated and 50% effaced! Already! While this news is great, it leaves me feeling a little apprehensive. I'm not ready yet! Where is he going to sleep? We have no diapers! And that means labor is soon! Ah!

This news, however, does not mean we're in labor at all. It just means my body is preparing for it. It could be a matter of days, but most likely weeks- we're getting so excited!

Groundhog Day

Today Punxsutawney Phil predicted that there will be six more weeks of winter. Stupid groundhog. He doesn't know what he's talking about... I can't handle more winter! But I have to admit, I'm not incredibly surprised. We've had more snow this winter than any I've ever experienced in Utah. I just hope that once winter decides it's over, spring kicks its butt and it's beautiful and sunny. Please, oh please!
