I had a doctor appointment today and she found during the exam that I am dilated 2 cm and 50% thinned out...and then she offered to strip my membranes (which can but doesn't always induce labor)...and I totally chickened out because she said it would hurt a lot and now I'm really mad at myself. I was surprised to learn that anything was going on because I hardly had any signs lately...but 2 cm doesn't mean much...could be today or could be a while. Back to waiting and I get to sit and wonder if the waiting could have been over if I hadn't chickened out.

Nothing new to report unfortunately. I have an appoitment on Monday...so hopefully the doc will be able to give us good news (that Timmy is coming soon). We are just anxiously waiting to see if Timothy will make it here before my dad...otherwise he will have to wait until November to meet Grandpa Dave ..... waiting is really hard!

Well, we are soooooo ready...but I have no labor symptoms to report :( I feel good - I just get tired fast and my back hurts once in a while. I've been saying since the beginning that I wanted Timothy to be born during my 38th week...we'll see - for some reason I am terrified of going past my due date. Everything is ready, the nursery is finished and stocked, our bags are packed, we are pre-admitted to the hospital, and I've met with anestesia for the Epidural briefing....Mark is signed up for a "Daddy Class" on the 14th - but what's better than hands-on training?
We got a break in the weather - it was nice and cool all weekend - I didn't realize how much the heat was affecting me! I had 10 times more energy once it cooled down! But its supposed to get hot again tomorrow :-P
Steph moves out this week...what in the world are we going to do without her? Its going to feel really weird without her here - she has helped us sooooo much!

Timmy's airplane bedding:
This is Gidget's new favorite napping spot in the house - under the crib :)
The crib and changing table...the bed is made and the changing table is stocked...now we just wait :)
Steph & Lindsey helped me paint these stars to hang across the window:
My mom found this shelf at a thrift store and Lindsey painted it for me. The rocking chair is from Mark's parents :) Thanks guys! Mark made one of the airplanes for Timmy, and the white shoes were worn by his dad!
