Not actually ready though. Please tell the baby that it needs to stay inside for about 2 and a half more weeks. Send some keep on cooking vibes our way.
Yesterday I had a lot more contractions-that-aren't and this morning I woke up to find that I'd lost some of my plug (another of those pregnancy/birth TMI things, sorry). I think I'm about 2-3 cm dilated. Did I say 1-2 last time? It's very difficult to reach and I'm not entirely sure of what I'm feeling, but I do get the feeling that these contractions are doing something. Again, not terribly worried, but in the back of my mind keeping my options open. In two and a half more weeks, when I've reached 37 weeks, I won't be worried at all.
In any case, I decided today that I wanted to be more prepared right now than I am. So we bought a car seat today with some of the Xmas money my mom gave us. Also diapers and wipes. Now I just need to get it cleaned up around here and to keep it that way and I'll feel a lot more prepared.
Just two and a half more weeks baby, and then you've got the green light. Whenever you're ready.
