Still Waiting

I am still waiting... I mean, yes, I know I am not due for over 20 days.. I am just really, really impatient and antsy. Had a Dr (NP) appt Monday.. she said I am 1cm and 75% effaced. Had an u/s on Tuesday for dates and baby was measuring at 37w1d and probably 7 pounds. It feels like I am having an occasional BH or even real contraction... but nothing consistant. And I am feeling so huge and uncomfortable. When I sleep or stand too long I feel siatic nerve pain on my left side and it is driving me nuts.And I am so hoping to go into labor this week, both kids are off of school all week and so I could send the kids to my parents and not be upset about them missing school. But that plan was thwarted somewhat because my Dad went into the hospital w/ pneumonia Saturday night and HOPEFULLY will be out today. Though my Mom said she would figure things out if I would go into labor.
Otherwise we are pretty much ready - besides packing our clothes. Baby clothes are washed, things are bought, baby's bag is ready, diapers are bought and last night dh took down the car seat and bassinet.
*tick, tock, tick, tock*

And I know... I still need to update on other things... I just feel like doing nothing right about now!!!

Hang in there, Sweetie! The end is near and you will soon have that precious baby in your arms.

I'll be thinking of you!
