Not Much Longer

by Mollie

Looks like Natalie might be planning for an early arrival!

I am now:

4cm dilated and 80% effaced


baby is at -3 station

(for those familiar with labor lingo)

In other words, she could wait a week or more, but could very well be here tomorrow!

All this and I can still barely tell when I am having a contraction– not at all what I expected.

Andy and the doctor predict by the end of the week, I am thinking (hoping?) she’ll wait till next week. Please humor me by leaving a comment and making a guess. 😉 Keep in mind, Saturday is a full moon! Don’t babies like to be born during a full moon?

Pictures, just for fun:

Watch my belly grow


“Coming home” outfit

(Andy picked it)


Natalie’s Easter dress!


We’ll keep you all updated. 🙂

    If I were a discerning baby (and I am), I would take care to be born on a Sunday, right around 12 noon or so.
    If there is a church potluck, all the better.

    Can’t wait! Glad things are progressing so well. A guess…. lemme see….. Tuesday, March 6th. Lots of prayers here.

    Let’s go for March 7th. I know it sounds like a long way off, but it will be here sooner than you know.

    In all fairness, Mollie bought the outfit. I just picked it as the one I wanted her to wear on her trip home. 🙂

    There’s a lot to be said about full moons.

    I was born a week late on the full moon–3 days before schedule inducement.

    So my vote is for the full moon day. at night.
