I feel like we're getting so close and I'm getting so nervous and excited! I'm getting more contractions these days...I'll get two or three in a row and then nothing for a few hours. I'm also getting some constant period-like cramping a few times a day and sharp twinges/stabbing pain in what feels like my cervix. Anyone else getting this type of pain late in your pregnancies? Is this effacement pain? In general I'm feeling exhausted and uncomfortable during the day. She's starting to drop, but I'm still having heartburn with the added joy of increased bladder pressure. Needless to say I'm looking forward to enjoying her outside my body haha :)
Our hospital bag is mostly packed and the carseat is in the car. We got a chance to go over our birth plan with our OB at our last visit, and I'm feeling very reassured that we'll be able to have the kind of birth we'd like. So things are pretty much in place, and we're just waiting for her arrival. I'm so sure she'll be here close to her due date if not late because she's our first, so if she comes early I'm sure I wont feeeel prepared, but I know that will change when I actually go into labor. I can't even remember what it's like not to be pregnant! That's going to be so weird!
