How is it possible!?!

How is it possible to be dilated to a 5 (that's right 5!) and effaced 80% and not be in labor? Seriously. My body has this uncanny ability to hold a baby in. It's ridiculous.

Yes, I had a doctor appointment today. It was good I guess. I know I should be happy that things are still progressing but I'm actually kind of mad that I'm not in labor yet...considering. OK, rant is over. The appointment was just the usual. She told me to go to the hospital if I start experiencing any kind of regular contractions since it's likely that it will be a fast labor (I am already half way there after all). So that's good...to not be very likely to be in labor for hours and hours. I just don't want to miss the epidural window! All will be fine. Miss Ava is really low now. I visit the ladies room pretty frequently. :)

I had another ultrasound which was fun! It was so different than any others I have had. She's just so big and cramped in there compared to last time I saw her. The measurements indicate that she is around 7 lbs and 5 oz right now. That sounded OK to me since it hopefully will mean that she won't be any bigger than Chase was (8lb, 14oz) even if I go to my due date. We'll see I guess! Pictures below...

The top one is straight down on her face...that's her hand up by her face on the top...not a huge cheek. The bottom on is a profile...she's looking up.
Here's me with 9 days until the due date.
And of course Chase wanted me to take his picture too!
