39 Weeks!

We made it to our goal! My OB said the baby benefits from staying cozy inside me until 39 weeks, so that was our ultimate goal for this pregnancy. I can't believe it's here. I am soooo ready to have an outside baby now, but Greg wants her to stay in until at least Sunday evening so he can catch up on sleep this weekend ;)

I only had very slight progress at my OB appointment yesterday. I was still 50% effaced and at station -2, but I was slightly more dilated, however, not enough to call it 2 cm. My OB could see the disappointment on my face and reminded me that progress would just be "icing on the cake," but lack of progress doesn't mean that I'm not going into labor anytime soon.

In CF-related news, the mold count has skyrocketed here in Austin, which means I've been feeling like crap! I've been exhausted, achy, coughing up green phlegm, needing my albuterol more often, and I can only breathe out of one nostril most of the time. Yuck. I really don't want to get sick right when the baby comes! So, I called in sick today and slept 11 hours last night. Ahhhhh....

I was 0 cm dilated when I started active labor, I went from 0-6cm in two hours. So don't worry, it can happen quick! I can't believe your at 39!!! Yippeee I can't wait to see her!
