30 WEEKS - HOME STRETCH BABY!!!!

Today was my 30 week cervical check-up at the MFM's office, and I'm pre-scheduled for the next 4 Tuesdays at 10 am. My cervix is up to 1.6 so to say I'm ecstatic would be an understatement. They didn't measure the baby this week but did measure the amniotic fluid which they said is perfect. While I'm carrying small the sono tech did say that the baby is taking up every square inch of uterus (especially since he can put his feet in my ribs now). I asked my MFM a very important hypothetical question. I asked, "If I hypothetically said to you, I don't think I can do this much longer, what would you say?" Her response, "After you hit 34 weeks, go walking around the mall and take yourself off bedrest", and she followed it with her super-huge smile. YYYYYYYYYYYYAAAAAAAAAAAYYYYYYYYYYAAAAAAAAAAAAAAYYYYYYY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I think I can, I think I can, I think I can, I think I can....4 more weeks and we let Slinky and cervix take their course!

***And I'm officially a soccer driving mom - We picked up the Mazda 5 today...my sexy mini-van is in the driveway!!! We didn't tell my daughter, so when she got home from school today and saw it she freaked, "WE GOT A NEW CAR?!! I LOVE IT!!!" So at least I have her approval. LOL

Hey, Pheebs! You know what I just realized? When your little Slinky enters the world, we'll have an African American president. (PLEASE GOD!) Pretty cool, eh! Isn't it wonderful to know that your son (and daughter) have endless possibilities?

CONGRATULATIONS!!! I need to somehow get out to you, by the way, because I have a present for Slinky! :) Well, hopefully when you reach 34 weeks I can meet you...in the mall!!! =D

Also: try and convince Slinky to come into this world on November 4th. In 20 years, he'll be proud to know that he came into a better world...an Obama nation! :)
