The tale of the centimeter

We had our 37th week OB visit yesterday, and much to the satisfaction of our OB, I was already at 1cm. Brief background - our OB wants me to give birth earlier than 40 weeks so i could still deliver normally because I'm small. It was the first time I went alone to the OBs office since Rich had his blood typing in another part of the hospital, so I had time to ponder about. I actually didn't know how to feel about it, but I knew that it was a step closer to having our baby girl with us.

It was funny how we went into a state of frantic buying and double checking when I told Rich about our 1cm situation. So after TMC, we went straight to Galleria - we bought additional house clothes for baby, because she still lacked enough of those; a rocker and sleeper which baby can sleep in at night beside us in our room (the crib will wait for a few months more) and an amazing gadget that will keep baby cool in her room sans the detrimental addition to our Meralco bill because of the aircon (Will write a separate post for this).

It wasn't actually cramming per se, I guess it just got more real when we found out about that simple centimeter. Hehe.

Feeling the homestretch. Please pray for our little family. :)
