The beginning of the end has begun

I had an appointment yesterday. Here's the low down.

#1. I now weigh more than I ever, ever have in my whole's kind of weirding me out and it's only going to get worse as the weeks go on.

#2. The baby has not entered the pelvic bone yet (not too worried about that---Tennyson never did until I started pushing)

#3. I am 1cm dilated and 50% effaced!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! BEST. NEWS. EVER.

I know, I know. I doesn't mean anything. I will still probably go over due. Although I have never started to dilate this early. ANYWAY. But just the fact that things have started towards the end is thrilling beyond measure.

We have confirmation that I will not be pregnant forever! WAHOO!

Now I just have to:

~finish painting Tennyson's big boy dresser
~finish the baby quilt
~buy a car seat ('cause it's illegal to bring a baby home with out's the little things)
~organize the two youngest boy's closets
~wash baby clothes (although I did just wash them and get them put away---so maybe....)
~finish painting the kitchen/dinning room

Whew. I'm tired just typing that list. But it can be done. And if it can't I guess I'll just be busy after the baby is born too. Although I'm thinking I should move buying the car seat up to a higher priority.

Let's just hope I get a super nesting boost for the next two weeks.

I would be glad to come help paint and/or organize. Just call me and tell me when.

Since this is the last time you plan to be in this condition, take some deep breaths and enjoy it a little... I know easier said then done.

You know Em we bought the car seat for Lila at 6pm on the 29th and she popped out 12 hours later. So I would definately move the car seat purchase up the list of priorities...
What color did you pick for the kitchen? Hope you get some sleep in between all the painting and organizing.
