40-Week Update

As my 40th week of pregnancy winds down, reality and excited anticipation are ramping up. I've been having strong contractions since last night in what seems to be proof that Skipolini's Prego Pizza really does what it promises to do. We'll see how the rest of the day goes.

Speaking of rest, that's tops on my agenda for today. They say it's important to reserve energy as much as possible during the first stage of labor to ensure you have the stamina to make it through to the end. I alternate cat naps with birthing exercises on my yoga ball. I've even managed to do a load of laundry here and there. Both Brian and I are eager to meet our little one and I have to admit that I'm eager to experience childbirth.

Though both Brian and I are techno-savvy folks, we are not planning Twitter or FB play-by-plays in the delivery room. Once we get there, we're on a mission and plan to focus on the serious work ahead of us. But until then, it's fun to text friends back and forth with our progress thus far.

I can't wait to hold our little bundle of joy in my arms!
