Any Day Now. . .

Josh and I went for a check-up with Doctor this morning.

First of all, let me say that I really like my doctor. She is very matter-of-fact and down to earth. I had several questions for her this morning; instead of rushing out of the room, she sat down and talked with Josh and me for at least 10 minutes, answering my questions and going over a few things that I hadn't even thought to ask her about. I appreciate her perspective that childbirth is a normal and natural event, that a woman's body was designed for labor and delivery, and that interventions should only be used in instances of true emergencies. If anyone is looking for an OBGYN in our area, let me know and I'll give you her name.

So. . . according to Doctor, Baby Redin could now come any day! I'm dialated to almost 4cm and am over 60% effaced. The doctor had me make an appointment for next week but said, "I won't be surprised if I see you before then. Your body is definitely gearing up and you may not last the week." Hip hip hooray!

Please keep us in your prayers. We are so excited to meet our little son or daughter. It's hard to believe it could be any day now. . .

Wow! That is amazing. It doesn't seem real to me sometimes that you're stepping into real-life motherhood. Other times, it seems like the most natural thing in the world for you to be doing. We've come a long way since college, huh?

Wohoo! It's amazing how fast the time goes! Are you going to take your digital camera and wireless laptop to the hospital so you can post pictures on the blog immediately? We out-of-towners would love it. =)
