almost there

Posted on July 26th, 2012 by mountain girl  |  8 Comments »

We are in the final stretch. This is me this morning, with 6 days until full term. The belly has dropped considerably (can you tell?) I’ve been having on and off contractions since Sunday, and they are slowly building in intensity. My midwife thinks I just might not make it to my due date, August 1 (big smiles).

My friend Cindy is here, and my parent fly in Saturday. Only baby’s arrival remains to be seen!

    Yes the belly has dropped.. for sure! Oh how very exciting!! I had contrax on and off for over a week, but from the time they became something that required my attention till baby was out was less than 4 hours. We called the midwife at 2:00, she arrived at 3:00, and baby was here at 5:20 šŸ™‚ So all that early work paid off!

    Praying for glorious birth!
