OMG!

So I'm at the doc's this morning for my weekly check up and she's trying to find the baby's head. She can't, so she's worried it's transverse. Let's check things out, she says, as she straps on the rubber glove...

Insert finger...(ouch!)...extract finger...and she exclaims, "Oh, Springroll! You're 4 cm dilated and the head is down and engaged! No wonder we couldn't find it!!"

So she tells me that I have a 25% chance of going into labour in the next 48 hours.

I am freaking out. I have nothing ready.. and I'm not exaggerating! No diapers, no sleepers, no soother...nothing!!! The carseat isn't even installed yet!!

OMG!!!

Sheesh - I'm so jealous! You're 4cm, and I'm barely 2cm at 40.5 weeks. I bet you'll have your baby before I have mine!
Best of luck with the journey to meet your little one in person. Can't wait for the pics and story...

Oh how exciting! These LO's sure have a mind of their own about when they are going to join the world. Wishing you a speedy delivery and don't worry, DH will have lots of time to do everything else :)

Woo hoo!!! That's a way better outcome than baby being transverse! Can't wait to hear you've had little Dim Sum.

Wow! Little Dim Sum will be here really soon (if not already), I hope you can get the car seat installed in time! So excited for you, I hope labour goes really well.
