Well here I am behind yet again, but I feel like this week has been so busy!!!! Baby Adrian is fully developed now and trust me, she can come any time now :) She is the size of winter melon and is gaining about 1/2 a lb a week until she decides she is ready to meet us all.
The nesting definitely set in around Saturday last week, I had my poor husband packing up boxes and organizing as much as he could in our tiny space, renting a rug doctor to clean the carpets, and just overall picking up while I was at work. I then spent my Monday off cleaning like a mad women. Baseboards are vacuumed, cabinets scrubbed, everything dusted, and all clothes are clean! I even finished the baby bedding whoo hooo!!!!!! Everything has been checked off the registry, so I am definitely ready for her to be here!
This week I had been feeling lots of pressure and tightness in my belly, so I finally called the doctor and im definitely in the very early signs of labor, just my contractions are not in a pattern. The doctor checked me and I'm 1-2 cm dilated .. not much but hey its better than a big fat 0! Thursday at work I just didn't feel so hot, overall I just felt like I was about to start my period, then woke up Friday feeling the same way. I called my mom and asked if she remembered feeling this way, and her voice got a little higher and she said "ohhh Amanda this baby is coming so soon!". HALLELUJAH !!!! My mom said she definitely remembers feeling that way and around a week later my brother was born. So yesterday I decided to walk the mall (hoping this would kick start something) and I had to get something to wear to my works award banquet. I walked the mall and after about 2 hours I decided to head home. WARNING if you are man just stop reading... I came home, went to the potty, and noticed my plug came out! WHOO HOOO! This is another good sign that my cervix is getting ready and starting to open up! I have continued to have contractions for the past few days off and on, but I really haven't worried about them since its not a pattern and they haven't brought me to my knees.
My mom has been guessing all along that Adrian is going to be our sweet valentine baby, and I really do hope so! I will have Justin take a picture tonight of my enormous belly before the banquet and we will post it very soon!!!!
