2 cm dilated 50% effaced

So I had a check up at the Dr today and she did an ultrasound. It was shocking how big things seemed compared to a few short months ago. The head was large and definitely down low. My dr did an internal exam and was able to feel the head! She said the baby was very low and in the perfect position for the best type of labor (whatever that means ;) )

Anyhow, she was impressed that I was dilated and happy that the cervix had begun to thin. Of course this doesn't mean much as I could stay this way for a couple weeks. But it does mean that the baby is coming and it really could be any day.

I have a whole new surge of emotions today. I had not planned on knowing any of the details except the ultrasound today so finding out that I am 2 cm dilated makes things more real. I am definitely more nervous but excited and eager at the same time. So emotional. I absolutely can not wait to meet our little girl.

So for now, I am going to try to finish up some things I wanted to do around the house this weekend, Ted is going to plant our new Oleander plants and we also get to share our last anniversary as a family of 2. :)

I will keep you posted on my progress!
