My last appointment was on Thursday. I am happy to say that my pregnancy is progressing very well! I am already 1 cm dilated and the baby's head is still positioned downward. Hooray! I asked my doctor if there was any sign that indicated that Violet would arrive sooner. Statistically speaking, he said, most first time moms have their babies around their due dates. All well. I was hoping she might come a little earlier... I miss sleeping on my back and tummy. I miss having a non-swollen body as well.
