Wait, what? Did I Hear That Right????!

So, I had my appointment today. I wasn't expecting much. I was mostly just hoping to hear that my fluid levels were good and hopefully that I was like 1cm dilated.

Within minutes I was informed they were running really behind due to my doctor delivering a baby. All good. I busy reading blogs off my reader. Before I knew it, almost an hour and a half had passed. My doctor was back, but there were five people ahead of me. I was still fine. I didn't have to go back to work. The only thing that I was going to do was go grocery shopping. Since she was so far behind the tech ended up doing my u/s and we instantly saw that the fluid levels were a bit higher. It really all just depends on Miss Skylar's position really. Again I was able to see her little belly moving while she practiced her breathing. Oh how I love it. And her sweet little hands were balled in a fist. She looked comfy.

I walked out of the room and was instantly put in another room. My nurse was running around. My doctor had been called to go to another delivery so was trying to us that were waiting before getting out the door. I stripped from the waist down and waited, but just a couple minutes. In both her and the nurse came. I laid down and she measured my stomach. I told her that I was starting to have some stronger contractions and she perked up. She strapped on her gloves and said, "You are going to feel some pressure..." She had already warned me that it was going to hurt. And she wasn't lying! YIKES! So while her fingers are pressing around and pushing and whatever she was doing, she looks at me and says, "Wow, you are at a 4." Wait. What? Come again. Did I really just hear you right??? I literally asked her if she was joking. She looked at me dead serious and said, "I don't joke about these things. OMG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I started freaking out. A 4. What happened to 1 or 2? And my mucous plus? I didn't even know anything was going on.

I realize that I could walk around like this for a couple weeks, but with the contraction I am having, I don't now if this will be the case. I guess we will see. I am excited. Makes it even more real that she is coming...any day as my doctor told me!

And now dear bloggers, I would like to know your guesses on when you think she will be born. I want to know what day, what time, how much you think she will weigh all of it. And I want to give a prize to those whose guesses are right or closest. So guess away my friends, guess away! I am excited to see what y'all think. Like I have said, I thought it would be next weekend and after today, I am starting to re-think.

Good luck dear readers!!!

YAY!!!!! I think 4cm is awesome. But like you said, it could still be weeks. Hopefully not...but it can. Every day I click over waiting to see a beautiful baby pic. That being said, I'm going to go with 3/3/09 because that is my anniversary. And then um 8:08pm, just because that's what time Harrison was born. And um...6lb, 4 oz, cause she's your first.

Good luck.

When I was 4cm I was in so much pain I thought I could DIE at any given second, actually I don't even know if I was that dilated at that point...I am so so excited for you...Eli's parents better come back soon! Now for the guessing....hummm....

Jiff said...

My guess is Wednesday morning at 9:04am. She'll be 6 lbs 4 oz.

I'm just guessing wed at 9:04 bc that's the day and time Bay was born. :)

My first hunch was you'd go into labor Monday night and have her Tuesday morning around 3 or 4am.

So we'll see. :)
