Just waiting on Britt...

So I've been telling everyone who will listen for about a week now that I'm ready to evict Britt. They all keep telling me enjoy every minute, you'll miss this, and he's not ready yet. I think a few of them have forgotten how tiring it gets to be at 8 months.

So I was very happy when I went to the OB yesterday. He told me that I am 2 cm dialated. Britt's at station 0, meaning he has dropped as far as he will/can before I start pushing. They verified that he is head down and stuff. I asked them about the odds of him coming early since I was 3 1/2 weeks early. They said that if I was 3 today after being nothing last week that they would say he was definately going to be early, but since I was only 2, he could come next week or I could stay at 2 for another 3 weeks. I suppose we'll just have to see. In any event, since I'm measuring 36 weeks and he is at least 6 lbs, they said if I were to go into labor tonight, that they wouldn't stop it. I guess I'm just waiting on him now. So see I'm not as crazy as everyone thinks for being ready for him to get here.

Mother was excited to hear and told me to keep them posted. Mom on the other hand flipped out, it's so funny but I think it's getting real to her. She kept saying that she's not ready to have another grandkid here yet. She's insisting that I not do anything - walk, move, vaccum, ANYTHING. I kept reminding her that this doesn't mean he'll be here tomorrow, but she's convinced that she needs to come and clean our house this week, and that I shouldn't do anything. My OB specifically said there is no reason to put me on bedrest or restrict anything just not to run any marathons or do areobics right now.

I still don't think he'll be here before Christmas, but just before New Year's would be nice.
