So just got back from the OB. I'm 2-3cm dilated and 50% effaced. (At least 10 cm is needed for baby to come out and the cervix has to be completely effaced) I'm only a week away from estimated date of arrival for Baby Jeli. This is good news because that means my body is starting to do some of the initial work before I go into early/active labor. This reduces the need to use certain types of medical intervention if the baby is late.
Sleeping has become quite difficult because Jeli is just moving around so much. She definitely has her night/day mixed up. But for sure, she has me on her schedule. I guess this isn't so bad since I'm adjusted to taking naps instead of long stretches of sleep. I think right now I nap from 11pm-1:30am and then go to bed around 3am...it doesn't help that I'm so into Greenspan's book right now. So for all of you out there with no kids, enjoy all the sleep you can get now!
Oh and I chopped off about 6 inches of my hair. It's about shoulder length now. I'll get a photo taken shortly perhaps sitting in the nursery or something :)
