Weekly update...

Weekly dr. appointments and I have a love/hate relationship. I hate when he checks my cervix, but love hearing the baby's heart beat. Today I went back to the doctor. I lost 5 lbs. in the last week. My dr. never said anything about it, but the nurse did. She questioned me about it and I simply said that I must have had a big breakfast the morning of my last appointment. All together I have gained 15 lbs. so far. But I know the last month is notorious for weight gain...so we will see if I make it to 20 lbs, like the dr. suggested. I have dialated to a one. If I were pregnant with Autumn this would mean the baby would be born tommorow. (I had Autumn the day after my dr. finally announced some progress and that I had dialated to a one, but Autumn was only 3 days early.) I know women can be at a one for awhile, so my hopes aren't up for an early delivery, but progress is being made and the contractions I had last night were actually doing something other than causing discomfort. Plus I am 50% effaced.
And just for kicks and giggles. Here are some pictures of Autumn. She got some new clothes last week, and her two favorite items were her two Elmo hoodies. This first one is a 2T so it's big, she will get to wear it next year for sure. The other hoodie is 18 mos. and fits perfect!
