ob appt today

I just got back from my OB appointment. The doctor said I was 2cm, 70% effaced, and the baby was VERY low. What's this mean??? Well it means I could have a baby tomorrow or I could have a baby in 3 weeks, so nothing really. The baby kicked the doctor's hand when she set it on my belly to feel for her and we both laughed. The doctor said, "well looks, like you've got a feisty one!" "Yes," I said, "I have a feeling she is going to kick our household up to top speed."

We are traveling to Topeka for Thanksgiving which is 2 hours away so JUST IN CASE, Lee is bringing home some sterile gloves, scissors and stitching string (to tie off the cord) in case we have to have an in car delivery on our way home. :) I am packing lots of blankets and a vinyl table cloth. We don't want our mini to get messy! I figure that being prepared will assure that we will not need any of it.

Enough of the graphic details. This post is clearly for women and other mothers who no longer are grossed out by this kind of talk! :)

Happy Thanksgiving to you all.
Lots of Love from the Leinwetters!

LOL...you have me laughing at how casual you are saying this "Lee is bringing home some sterile gloves, scissors and stitching string (to tie off the cord) in case we have to have an in car delivery on our way home. :) I am packing lots of blankets and a vinyl table cloth" You sound like quite the pioneer woman and I love it!! ~LWoolley
