Dr. Appointment

Had an appointment yesterday and everything seems to be going well. I'm not having any contractions yet but I have been having cramping, which means my body is prepping to have this baby. The baby's heartbeat was strong and when the doctor checked to see if I had any dilation, Mini gave her a big kick. As of yesterday, I was 1 centimeter dilated with a good start on effacement but Mini hasn't dropped yet so we've still got some time.

After the appointment, my mum and I wondered around Rodeo Drive for a while. We went into Ralph Lauren because they have a baby section. So many cute, tiny, preppy clothes! Mum found a dress for herself that was on sale for half off... only $559. What a deal! That's about when we decided to go home.

Last night our childbirth class instructor came over to do a review with us. We'll be the last people in our class to have a baby. It's interesting to practice for something you've never experienced. After we were done with the review and practice, we showed her the baby hammock all set up. She was very impressed. I wonder if people in LA start buying them, if we can get a commission for getting it all started! :)


  1. Good to hear you're getting ready gradually and steadily. As much as I can't wait to find out who this is, I want it to be as easy on you as possible. I miss you bunches and can't wait to see you (AND MINI!) in March.

  2. Hi Mini, this is your Gran calling to tell you it is perfectly OK to drop now, so that you can meet your parents. Don't worry, when you are not being held in their loving arms you will be rocking gently in your hammock.


On that thought...
