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!


  1. Yay! Baby Nielsen is on his way OUT!

  2. That is so exciting!!! Please, let me know when you have the baby! I would like to help.
