2 cm

Well, I went to the doctor yesterday and I am 2 cm dilated! I was pretty excited about this until today at school, the nurse said to me, "Half the world's pregnant women are 2 cm dilated!" Way to burst my bubble...hmmm, I wish my bubble would burst! :) Actually, I thought it was funny. I know 2 cm means nothing! But it is a glimpse of hope.

I'm getting worried about the size of this kid. The doc thinks he's on the high end of 7 pounds. Actually, I'm more worried about the size of his head. I think they should put head circumference on sperm donor profiles. That would have helped make the decision as to who to pick!!!

Jen and I are off to a dinner out. We are trying to get our "us" time in now before the baby arrives. Thanks everyone for your support throughout our journey to our baby.

2 cm may be common, but it is 2 cm less to dilate when labor starts! They say with a first baby to expect a cm an hour, so you *could* only have an 8 our labor! My friend was 3 at her final doc visit. Her labor started later that evening, and sure enough it took her 7 hours to get to the pushing phase. Woo Hoo for 2 cm!!
