ok, baby time is just around the corner!

So, I went tot he doc today, and he said that Will is NOT as big as we thought. I saw a PA last week b/c my doc was on vacation and she's the one who told us that he's a big baby. But Dr. Harnsberger reassured us that he will NOT be a huge baby (thank goodness!), and that he will be just right!

Also, the big news is that I'm 1 centimeter dialated!! Apparently this doesn't mean I'll go into labor in the next few days, but it just means that labor is not too far away. The doc says that I probably won't go to 40 weeks (his best guess is between 36 and 38 weeks). Today, I'm 35 weeks and 2, we're just waiting for baby Will to arrive!

It's becoming so real now....I am so excited!! But scared too...I guess my biggest fear is the craziness. I'm a pretty mello gal, and I just don't want the day of labor and the few weeks that follow to be crazy. The whole breast feeding thing is kinda scary, too! This little boy is going to be attached to my boob every 2-3 hours for at least the first few weeks until we introduce a bottle so daddy can help feed...I hope I have enough milk...I hope he latches on...I hope I don't get frustrated and give up...there's so many things to worry about! But, I do know that Cory is the best husband and will be the best daddy, and he'll be there unconditionally to help me through my insecurities. He already has been so supportive and encouraging...

I have to remember that it's not going to be easy for him either. He's got to go back to work and actually be productive AND help me with the baby when he gets home and during the night. I can sleep when he sleeps throughout the day but Cory won't get that luxury... I have a feeling that Cory will just slide right into the daddy role! He already talks about taking Will fishing, for rides in the truck, and having Will sleeping in his arms while watching cute!


  1. Ahhhh, I can't wait! You are going to text me...right??? April is having Abigail RIGHT NOW. Pushing as we "speak".

  2. Oh my gosh! I cannot believe it's so close!!!!!!! I'm so excited for you and can't wait to meet baby Will!!!
