Ch-ch-ch-changes

Well folks, I had my 35 week appointment today. Our doctor doesn't routinely do 35 week internal exams, but since I'd requested one because I wanted to know if the baby had dropped and if I was progressing any.

*DISCLAIMER: Folks who do not care to know anything about pregnancy, do not read!!!

The baby is head down, very low, and I'm "a fingertip dialated" (plus some softening of the cervix). I cannot tell you how happy this makes me. I was worried that the baby was breech, or that I'd carry over my due date (still a possibility, but it's looking better that the baby will be a little early than late). Plus the fact that the baby's head has begun to engage is also very comforting.

Anyways... So with that news aside, I have officially come home and taken one look at our apartment and flipped out. I have to get all of this crap cleaned up and put away before we have a baby. Which could be 2 weeks away, or 4 weeks, or 6 weeks (let's hope somewhere between the first two choices)... So I'm off to TRY to do some good in this apartment... we'll see how far I get!

Wow! Congratulations!!

I know what you mean about cleaning up. The last couple of days I have been running around the house organizing things and trying to get rid of piles of stuff that I know I won't care about once baby arrives.

Holy crap (I've been saying that a lot lately)...you're gonna have a baby! Hooray!!

I haven't started the "nesting" phase yet. I hope/pray that I don't. Because I have no room for anything as it is!!

Good luck getting things ready for baby.

Wonderful news! I was sooo happy to learn that our baby wasn't breach as well. Just one less thing to worry about! And it's so comforting to know that our bodies are still doing exactly what they are supossed to do around now. I hear ya on the mad last minute unpacking and we are scheduled to have a shower this weekend which means after unpacking from our move, we will still be unpacking this weekend!! It never ends...
