Things are moving along on the baby front. Or more accurately, Baby is descending and engaged in K’s pelvis and slowly but (hopefully) surely headed towards the exit…

37w3d and K’s cervix is starting to dilate and is 50% effaced, meaning it is ripening and thinning and getting to the point where delivery would (eventually) be possible. Nothing is imminent, and we are not rushing anywhere yet. It could still be a few weeks until K goes into active labor. But it also could be a matter of days…

Holy crap! Looks like someone has to get her shit together and prepare for this little one’s arrival. Not K — she is ready — me!

Carseat isn’t installed, milk hasn’t yet come in, formula hasn’t arrived, email list hasn’t been created, neighbors haven’t been warned, and work situation and health insurance aren’t yet worked out…

Oh, but we are still so very ready for this baby to come

It could still be a while, but we are getting closer. Finally.

  1. Gooooooooo Luna. (Jump with pike and waving pompoms).

  2. May the coming days go smoothly. Hugs to you all.

  3. How exciting! Hope things go well!

  4. *squeal!* 🙂

  5. OOo I feel like Im in the waiting room anxious to hear that the baby has arrived! Thinking of all of you 🙂

  6. Oh wow! Ohwowowowow! Oh, you are totally ready. Woohoo! So close…

  7. *Pacing back and forth* … Oh Luna, I’m just a big bundle of nerves right alongside you. But I have every faith in you that everything will work out just fine. It’s Karma at it’s best!


  8. Oh boy oh boy oh boy! Good luck with all the last details.

  9. So exciting! The good news is, for those first few days, all you need is food, diapers, blankets and lots of love. 😀

  10. OHohohohohoh! How exciting! And FWIW, I wouldn’t be ready either. When it comes down to it, all you need is a carseat, a pack of dipes, and something to feed the baby. Focus on those, all else can wait or be delivered to your door in due haste.

    What am I saying, focus on the baby. And K. Tell her I think she rocks. You already know I think you do.

  11. You are ready in the ways that matter.

    How exciting for you all!

  12. Like every new mother in the world, you are not ready and you are ready. And like all new mothers, everything that’s not yet sorted out will get sorted out pronto when it has to.

    My heart is swelling with joy at the thought of you waiting with so much love and anticipation for your baby.

  13. This is so exciting! I can’t imagine how excited you all must be as you await the arrival of this beloved little person 🙂

  14. That is very exciting! I hope all goes smoothly!

  15. How exciting!

    Car seat and milk/formula first, then work and insurance. Neighbors and email list can wait.

    Good luck to you and to K in the next days/weeks!

  16. He/she will be here soon!! (Don’t worry, I don’t think anyone is EVER “ready”…!!)

  17. Yay! Hope it happens soon (you don’t want it to drag on!) and I am sure you’ll be just as ready as anyone else.

  18. So exciting!

  19. YAHOOOOOO!! Wow, I can’t believe the baby is coming so soom! This is thrilling and you are more than ready for this!

  20. Weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!!

    I don’t know about the milk situation – although I suspect a baby actually nursing will help, but the rest can be done afterwords. Well, we got and installed the car seat the day before LB came and I was a week late!

    It will all work out. I am looking forward to your little one’s birth story.

  21. So exciting. I am so hoping things go smoothly.

  22. I’m late on this but had to say: HOLY SHIT. There must be more news by now…and I can’t wait to read it. XO, Luna. XO.

  23. waiting with bated breath!!!!

  24. Oh Luna, this is so wonderful. I am so looking forward to getting a sneak preview of life at home with a newborn through you.

    What a beautiful summer this is going to be! It’s about freakin’ time… 🙂

  25. YAY!!!!!!!
