I have news!

So I went to the doctor today. You may remember the last time I went I wasn't making any progress. I didn't have high hopes that anything would have changed since the last appointment. Well, I'm happy to say, I was wrong! I'm 2 centimeters dilated and 60% effaced! I was so happy to hear that. I know it doesn't necessarily mean I'll be going into labor anytime soon, but it's so encouraging to have made some progress. My body doesn't want to be pregnant forever after all! Haha.

AND more good news! If I haven't had her a week from Wednesday (September 17th) I will go in and my doctor will break my water and I'll have her that day! So so exciting!!! That means Aubrey will be here in 10 days at the latest. Can you even believe it? I thought when my doctor said we would set a date, she would say something a week or so after my due date. I never expected the day after!

The only drawback is that we will have to be at the hospital at 5 IN THE MORNING on the 17th. It probably won't be a big deal because I'm sure I won't be able to sleep the night before anyway. This is just such a bizarre feeling - I really am having a baby in the very near future! I won't be going back to the doctor before she's born. Today I made my 6 week postpartum appointment.

This post is kind of all over the place. Just what's going through my head! I'll write more later.

CARRIE AND DAVID!!!!!! This is so exciting! No, Carrie, you won't be able to sleep the night before anyway, and once you get your epidural, you'll be comfortable enough to nap while you're laboring anyway. I know you're on pins and needles. I hope the last few days don't drag by for you...
