40 weeks

2 cm dilated!
80% effaced!
-1 station!

making progress! the doctor stripped my membranes today (for sure) and said there is a 60% chance i will go into labor in the next 24-72 hours. i am so so excited to meet our little one (and know the gender!!). i can't believe it should all be happening so soon, and it just hit me that there's a good chance our baby will come out with dark hair and dark skin (like james). i've always imagined myself delivering a little pale baby with blonde hair and blue eyes looking like me and that's probably not going to happen. as long as it doesn't get my pale skin and james' dark hair, we'll be okay. as long as it comes out alive and healthy, we will be overjoyed. so close!!!

When Norah was born she had dark hair and skin. Which, given what Rusty and I look like was kind of weird. Then we found out her "dark" skin was actually "orange skin of jaundice" and all her dark hair fell out.
So excited for you guys Silvy!
