three weeks to go ...

So, I just got back from my 36 week checkup and drum roll please ... I am almost one centimeter dilated. Apparently, my fear that I have been running mile after mile with a baby who was mere moments away from falling out, was completely unfounded. In fact, my OB told me that I have an "iron fortress up there."

Interesting. I never really thought about my cervix in that light before. But, I guess she's right. If all of this running isn't really getting things going, then nothing will.

Nothing except that impeding induction that's circled on our calendar. That's right. We have officially picked the day of Dilly's arrival. January 28th. And as long as there aren't any last minute switcheroos or an early failure of "the fortress" we are a go, exactly three weeks from today. Holy crap ...

Whew- I feel SO much better now about all these runs (should we be calling them jogs?) that we've done. SO, we're on for tomorrow's 5+ miles, right? :)
