39 Weeks

I had my 39 week doctor's appointment yesterday and everything still looks good. I have effaced to about 70% and am still only about 1cm dilated. I'm hoping that next week will be "the week". It's really just a wating game now and I'll admit that I'm not the most patient person.

Last night I was finishing packing my bag for the hospital and the checklist I was using suggested packing some CD's or music that might help me relax or stay calm during labor. We keep all our music on the computer so I opened up Media Player to create a playlist. Anyway, I guess since my mind was focused on giving birth and all that good stuff quite a few song titles struck me as funny. Here are just few...
  • "Push"- Matchbox 20
  • "Take it to the Limit"- The Eagles
  • "Vasoline"- Stone Temple Pilots
  • "I Will Survive"- Cake
  • "What's Your Mama's Name?"- Tanya Tucker
  • "Hold My Hand"- Hootie and the Blowfish
  • "Papa Don't Preach"- Madonna
  • "Help!"- the Beatles
  • "Don't Do Me Like That"- Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers
  • "Counting the Days"- Collective Soul
  • "Harder to Breathe"- Maroon 5
  • "Lay Your Hands on Me"- Bon Jovi
  • "Something in the Way"- Nirvana
  • "Man! I Feel Like a Woman"- Shania Twain
