Three weeks left??

I'm feeling confident that it wont be that long. The doctor said today that I'm between 2-3 cm dilated and 50% effaced. She said that's really good for 37 weeks and the first baby. I have a really good chance of delivering vaginally too. So glad to hear that! She told me to keep doing what I'm doing (eating ice cream!? haha) I guess I move around a lot but I plan on be more active this week. She estimated that Kennedy will be about 6-7 lbs, average size for a baby. So all is going well and I go back in one week "unless I go into labor this week" hey those were the doctors words- not mine. I'M EXCITED!!

Old (ish) pictures

Dejah took some pictures a couple of months ago and I decided to post them

just felt like blogging

As of yesterday I am dilated to a 2 and effaced 50%. I know it can still be a while and that's ok, but we are both getting really excited. I can't believe how quick these months went by. It seems like just a couple of months ago I found out I was pregnant, and now its almost over. Crazy! Sometimes it really scares me how fast time goes by... we've been married for 14 months and it doesn't feel like it at all. We still rush home to see each other and say "I love you" countless times a day. I have a feeling we'll always be like this though. =) Life is just grand. Honestly though, this pregnancy has been kind of rough. It sucked having to pass a kidney stone (talk about pain), then I got this stupid PUPPs rash, and now they told me I tested positive for GBS. It has been scary and I've been full of emotions but I'm confident Kennedy will be a healthy baby and that all will be well. I know these little trials are worth it. I've had some great spiritual experiences and have really come to appreciate the blessings of the priesthood and I'm so thankful that Jordan is the man he is. He takes care of me. On the less serious side, I've decided I'm really excited to have my brain back. Pregnancy brain has made me even more absent-minded! Little things like getting lost going to places I have been many times, forgetting the date, having to write everything down...twice and not being able to say things that make sense have all become part of my daily routine. Anyway, these are just random thoughts because I'm bored and anxious.
