Happy Monday! Do you want to know why I am so happy today? First, I got the baby's nursery organized over the weekend, which takes a huge weight off my mind. Now at least the baby won't be sleeping in the bathtub. I am definitely one who can't settle down until those loose ends are all tied up. But even better than that?
I think I am nearing the end of this pregnancy! My doctor told me on Friday that I am about 3 cm. dilated, 70% effaced, and that she doesn't think I will make it to the 40 week mark. She thought things were progressing fast enough that she even warned me not to do anything this past weekend (wink, wink) that would, you know, induce labor, because she was going to be out of town until Monday morning.
So I made it through the weekend and am now hopeful that I will start to have some labor pains soon! So far I have had lots of contractions, but nothing consistent. I will keep you posted! In the meantime, here are some photos of the newly-completed nursery.
Keep in mind that it's pretty bland right now. Since we don't know the gender of the baby, we are waiting to add all those little touches that will make it cozy and unique.
This bassinet was my in my husband's family, and I just love it! I just gave it a fresh coat of white paint, and of course, added a white grosgrain ribbon.
