Not too soon please!

Baby bunny (well, not that adorable soft toy bunny made by the very talented lady at Tiny Warbler!!!) and I are making good progress!

Yesterday, the doctor told us that I had a 70% cervical effacement, a 1 cm (0.4 in) cervical dilatation and that Alice's head is already at a -1 position in my pelvis. This should be pretty exciting news but since I just started a cold I would like to put a little hold on that progress...just for a few days. PLEASE!!!

How bad would it be to go in labor while you have a stuffy nose and a sore throat?!?

oh nooooooo! C and I were just talking about this. i mentioned it to ben a while ago when i was sick and he said "i dunno, i am sure the intensity of labor will take over and it won't matter..."

WHAT?!?

he is a silly crazy boy.

and i hope you feel better ASAP.

Well I hope you feel better soon! But also, don't worry about it too much. I was dilated a cm for about a month before each one. And, I was dreadfully sick when A was born. Major cold and laryngitis!

You'll be just fine!

Yikes! Stay in there little baby! I thought about that quite a bit too as I got nearer my due date, and thought,'well, you never really hear about anyone saying, I was in labour AND had a cold, can you imagine!?' Oops, but after reading Martha's comment above, I guess it does happen (of course it does, silly me--I just assumed the universe wouldn't be so horrible!). I hope you are feeling better very very soon!! (I'm sure you will be!) xx

A friend of mine was born while he mum had a bad cold. I've never heard from her mum how that was but according to Katy it meant that she was born with a cold and the two of them just lay there afterwards feeling "blegh". I hope your cold clears up quickly and you are back to feeling your best for your little one's arrival.

That bunny is super cute (and I really like your letter A from yesterday - I only just saw it.)

I cross fingers for you, let baby Alice stay warm a couple more days!

oh no! I hope you feel better lady! you need your strength! but as Martha mentioned and I'm sure you know, you can be dilated 1 or 2 cm for a long time before you go into labor! not that you want to prolong it too long ;) because I'm sure you're anxious to meet your little lady. shoot, I'm anxious to see her tiny fingers pop up on your blog!
