Thursday, November 1


This is the month my baby will arrive. Sounds so strange to say it.
We had a doctor's appointment today, and I am dilated to a 2 at 70% effacement. Now, of course that could stay that way for weeks, but still-- it's cool to have some NUMBERS to report!!

I am finally feeling like I could leave my classroom and maybe be okay. I have had SO many papers piling up and it has been overwhelming. Now I am down to a few big things. I have also made copies for my incoming temporary replacement, so she can feel confident in continuing without me. Because once I leave that classroom, I am NOT going to stress about it until I get back in February.

Our home is nearly ready. Of course, there are some little things I'd like to finish, but were a baby to suddenly come, we could take him home and trust that the necessities are in place.

So. Here we go, November!! Let's see how you play out.


  1. I am so excited for little Noah to get here! Hope you are doing well. Thanks for hanging with me the other night, it was fun :)

  2. I'm so relieved and happy for you that you are done with the sub. prep. That is long and hard work. Honestly, at what other job would you have to plan out minute by minute what needed to be done in lieu of your absence? The only other job I can think of is Mom.
    You are a rock star and I'm getting so excited for you.
