36 Weeks...Now what?!?

I have arrived at my long anticipated 36 week mark, but now what? I had my doctor's appointment today and he officially took me off of bed rest. He said that I could return to my "normal" activities. He also said that if I had contractions I no longer needed to lay down and try to make them go away. It is time for nature to take it's course without me stopping it. I am dilated to a 3+ and thinned out (I forgot to ask how much). He said that it could be tonight or 3 weeks from tonight that I go into labor. You never know!

The problem is that I'm not really sure what to do with myself. I haven't been able to do my "normal" activities for the past 4 months. It's crazy! I'm very excited. I feel so blessed to have been able to make it this far. I can't wait to see what the next few weeks will bring! Most of all, I can't wait to meet my sweet little baby boy. I am very anxious, but realize that this baby will come when he is ready.

Thanks again to everyone for your love and support. I am so lucky to be surrounded by so many wonderful people. You have made the past few weeks so easy for me. Thanks again!

I have an idea. Why dont you get a babysitter, go to the mall, lunch with your sister, and get a mani & pedi... Wait, sounds familiar!

Hope you had a great day yesterday, and that you dont have to wait to long.

Come out baby, I want to hold you!
