37wk OB

I had my 37+ week OB appointment today.  I am a good 3cm dilated already, which is surprising because I haven't been having too many contractions.  I guess a little goes a long way... certainly tons of pressure :P  So... there you go.  Any day now!  Ever since I got checked I've been having contractions, but I feel like they're not much.  Josh wants Brennan NOW haha!  Apparently he's getting eager to hold him... and get him a passport.  After he arrives Josh will have a whole lot of running around to do, but I think he'll be relieved it can finally be done.  We're going to be cutting it all really close for Spain, but we have faith that everything will happen however it's supposed to happen.  No need to stress yet.

My Mom is here and will be here to help out basically until we move.  It's a HUGE relief having her here.  The boys love her, we trust her completely, and she's already been helping us so much.  After raising 7 kids and running a home daycare for 10 years I'm pretty sure she's the "expert" on kids and babies haha.  I'm glad she's retired and can do things like this :)  THANK YOU, MOM!! :D

OOOhHHH so close! I can't imagine just walking around dilated already. Weird. I'm glad Aunt Barbara is there to help. If it's any consolation, we found the State Dept. folks helpful about getting things done by when you need it -- they just might ask you for all your stuff a bit earlier than ready. They had Penny's passport ready in just 10 business days, but I had to travel to London only two weeks after her birth with her and Dan. As you said, though, it all works out.

3 cm!! Wow! I was 4 with both girls going in the hospital. Leah's labor to 4 was super fast. Haley's I think was to. ACtually, I might of been 3 with Haley, but my water had broke. Anyway, I'm dissappointed on the no birth on my birthday, but you can still try for the month of April since it's my birthday the entire month (Dave and I decided this like 7 years ago and May is his birthday all month) I can't wait to see the litte guy!! I'm so happy that your mom can come down and stay with you to. It was a BIG help. If you need to nap or whatever, she's there to help with the boys. Good luck kiddo!! Push that baby out soon!
