 Nope...

Just because I have gotten several inquiries lately - No, I am not in labor. :) This past week brought some pretty good contractions a couple of times, but they always died out after a couple of hours. My routine doctor appointment is always on Wednesdays. This Wednesday I found out I was 3 cm dilated and 80% effaced. Baby is still very low, in a zero station, engaged, and in perfect position for birth. But as of right now, still nothing. I am 37 weeks - and considered full term at this point. Trying to be patient. Trying not to get really annoyed at the inconsistent, but sometimes quite intense contractions that steal my sleep and keep me wondering. I wouldn't mind going these final 3 weeks - I just wish every thing would stop if that is going to be the case. So, in the mean time we will make pumpkin cookies, take a bazillion pictures of fall leaves, put the finishes touches into our bedroom, go on a hayride, pick some pumpkins, have some sweet little boy cuddling, make home made pizza, set up the bassinet in our room, spend a laid back weekend together as a family and enjoy this wonderful time of year. I will most definitely let you all know when any thing changes. :)

Wow! You have a full week of plans ahead of you, maybe they'll help ease the annoyance of not knowing...

We'll all be excited to hear the news!

Sounds like you've got a lot of fun distractions planned until that baby makes it's appearance! Still praying you'll make it full term!

I think you are further along at 37 weeks than I was at 40 weeks into my pregnancy!

Well that answers the question I was wondering about but didn't ask. :)
Looking forward to tales of the newest member of your family and how you all adjust to the new little man. Also, looking forward to pictures of the finished master suite.
