I went to the doctor for my 36 week appointment today and learned that I am 2 cm dilated and 50% effaced! Of course we are excited that Rose might make her appearance in a few weeks, but I am also trying to remind myself that some people walk around dilated for a month without making any other progress. Dr. Shields said that she is sure I won't make it till my due date (Jan 21) and she wouldn't be surprised if she came during the next 2 weeks! Clark and I are so excited!!
