Almost to the finish line!

This morning I went into the hospital for the standard "pre-hospitalization" procedure... they drew some blood, gave me an EKG and then sent me up to the maternity ward so I could answer questions about my medical history. This way they have a file on me, ready and waiting when I show up for the birth.

I've had some BH contractions lately but they always fade off pretty quickly. Oh! One exciting thing is that I lost the mucus plug two nights ago! So, I'm really getting excited to be "crossing the finish line" soon and meeting my new baby girl!

Have a great day, everybody.

Fantastic news Molly! I can't wait to hear of your daughter's birth and the name you chose. :)

Thank you Renee! I too am looking forward to writing an all-new birth story.

I am weirdly fluctuating between having energy spurts, and having profound feelings of exhaustion. Taking an iron pill every day now (I was negligent in that department before), so hopefully that will help.

Hope that you're feeling well, Renee! I will watch for your updates too.

Thank you, Melissa!

Guess today I ought to say something I'm thankful for: Today I'm thankful for our new babysitter, who my kids like very much -- they had their first afternoon here together yesterday. They took to her immediately! She is a very cute, friendly girl about 22 years old and while she was here I was able to rest this weary body of mine!!... And she will come again today and tomorrow, too!

Happy Turkey day to everyone.
