9 months pregnant, 28 days (hopefully less) to go!

I am 9 months pregnant today! I had my Dr. apointment this morning and she checked me and said I was 2 centimeters dilated. I never got checked with Ella until I was in actual labor so I have no idea if that means the baby is coming soon or if I will be dilated 2 centimeters for a month. I'm hoping it means labor will be soon because I'm officially uncomfortable! I have constant heartburn, my back hurts, the baby is so cramped in my belly that I'm having a hard time breathing, and I can't walk a few steps without having a Braxton hicks contraction. The Dr. said I was measuring really small so she scheduled me for an ultrasound for next week to get a measurement of the baby. She thinks the baby is about 5 pounds right now. I always was small with Ella though and she was 7 pounds 8 ounces!
So hopefully I don't go into labor since Paul is gone in Chicago until tomorrow night and we are meeting his grandparents Sunday in Springfield which is an hour away. I also just ordered the baby's car seat so it would be nice to have that too by the time I go into labor so we can take him/her home =) I will keep you posted!

By the way, today is our blogs first birthday! =)

You're getting so close. YAY!

The same thing happened with me with Patrick with measuring too small and having and being sent for an ultrasound and he was still 7 lbs at two weeks early.

Sorry for the grammar on the last comment. I wrote it in two parts while chasing Patrick and didn't proof read. oops.
