As a ski town, situated high up in Utah's mountains, Park City has lagged behind the rest of the state in reaching spring's warm weather; it finally seems to have hit, though, and suddenly the world is pretty and green and gorgeous. Plants are starting to bloom and layers are being shed, and Kumquat will be here soon.
Her official due date is today; at our OB appointment on Wednesday, the doc said we were still dilated to between 2.5-3cm. I've been having contractions pretty regularly for the last few weeks now - mildly uncomfortable for the most part, but when The Boy starts talking to his little girl, she gets really excited. He's anxious to meet her, and I can't blame him; obviously, I am too. But the whole thing seems sort of surreal to me - like it's never actually going to happen. I've always been really good at 'visualizing' my life, but those visualizations have never included motherhood, and it's hard to imagine what life is going to look like when she gets here. Sure, I understand much of the technical aspect of parenting (like how to change a diaper), but the concept as a whole is at once terrifying and electrifying.
We went to X-Men: Days of Future Past last night; as soon as the movie started, she started dancing - we both looked at it each, a little bit terrified that'd we'd have to leave before the awesomeoness started. Fortunately, it seems that Kumquat is just as big an X-Men fan as her parents - she very clearly loved it, and by the end, my ribcage felt like it had been split apart. I've never sat so straight for so long in my life (pregnancy is definitely doing a lot of good for my posture). And the movie was pure awesome.
Any guesses on when we'll go into labor? Her dad is hoping for sooner rather than later, while I sort of feel like it's never going to happen. Leave your thoughts in the comments!
