meantime I had a doctors appointment yesterday to see where I am at.  I am 1.5 cm dilated and my cervix is soft and ready to go.  She is right down there.  It is a matter of time now.  So the question is how long will it take for my water to break or for contractions to start?

My bag is packed and sitting at the door ready to go to the hospital.  What should I be doing now?  Shopping?  Relaxing?  Exercising?  What did you do in the days before you were due?

    On the last week, I cooked up a storm so I wouldn’t have to worry about meals for a few weeks after birth, I canned, I froze, etc
    On my due date, I was bringing my dog to the vet and doing last minute errands
    but that’s me and I didn’t have my daughter for another week after that …

    I say relax, enjoy the few full nights of sleep you have left before the little one shows up.
