Are we there yet? Are we there yet?

Well, everything is about the same. Still sitting here with the Jeopardy theme song in my head and feeling like kids in the back seat yelling, "Are we there yet?" "Are we there yet?" "Are we there yet?". However, I have changed my plan of action. I continue to go for light walks every day, but instead of going crazy with stair climbing, squats, uphill walking, etc....I decided to take the advice from Tori and get myself a relaxing massage! I had remembered our instructor during our childbirth class mentioned that a baby will more than likely come when you are relaxed versus stressing out. And of course the thought of "When will this baby get here" is constantly on my mind (along with most friends and family), but it is nice to turn my focus elsewhere. And so, I headed into Massage Envy on Sunday and LOVED IT! Why didn't I do this earlier?!?! I even had the pleasure of laying on my stomach with the pregnancy mat, which that alone was worth every penny. So far it has stirred things up a bit and the contractions have picked up....nothing huge or timeable, but heading in the right direction. I was also 2cm dilated at our appointment last Thursday. So it is a little slow, but I will definitely take all the progress. Just one step at a time, right?

i predict thursday for you!!! I hope i am right! :)

Oh a tip- i got SO FREAKING HOT once i got my epidural and i was laboring, so from about 6pm until well after 940am when he was born. John had the AC on 60 degrees for me, and he was bringing me wet washcloths every 10 minutes to cool me down. I wish i had brought a small fan with me. I would defintely suggest bringing one and keeping it in the car. Ryan can bring it up to you if you get hot too. That would have made my experience much nicer. I was just so darn hot!!!!

Oh and woman i can't believe that baby belly in the post below! WOW!!!! You are so huge- in such a cute and beautiful way! You look fantastic!!!
