I went to see Dr. Damore today. I'm now dilated to a THREE, 70% effaced, losing my mucus plug (gross I know), and Max is WAY down low in my pelvis. He has dropped.
My doctor said things are REALLY happening and I'll probably go into labor sometime within a week!! She didn't want to jinx me but she said she doubts that she will see me for my next week appointment!! I'm so excited I can hardly stand myself.
I really need to stay calm and realize that you never know what these babies are going to do and he may like to stay in there a while.
The problem is now I have this new expectant date so if I don't go before I see my doctor for my next appointment I don't know if I can stand this anticipation that he could come at anytime! Everyday I'm going to be on cloud nine thinking today could be the day!
I know I don't want to keep carrying him so low! Every step is getting difficult. He feels like he's just going to slip right out. My pelvis, muscles, lower back are really protesting and I know my bladder has had it! Walking is getting really uncomfortable if not sometimes a little painful.
I'll just have to wait and see what happens!! This anxiety and anticipation can be so overwhelming! My mind keeps spinning with, "Do I have everything?" "Is everything ready?" "Is everything perfect?"
I want everything to be in place so all I have to worry about is taking care of Max.
