Baby Riese could be here any day!

I had my 37 week checkup yesterday!
I got surprising news: I am already 80% effaced!(Only 20% to go!) Meaning the dialation is just around the corner. Baby Riese is not going to wait around for the end of Aug. to arrive.
My OB predicts "1 week" or so! She told me to pack my bags! (I haven't!) So it is on my agenda today! The process of labor is something totally out of our control and she said..."alot can happen in 1 day!" Ok, so she convinced me that Baby Riese is coming soon!!!
Mike is being very alert to my text messages and phone calls! He had a very BUSY week last week and worked a good 100 hours! He has that behind him and now he is back to a 9-6 schedule! AMEN! I am very thankful that his company is giving him 3 weeks off with pay for "maternity leave!"
Mom and Dad Riese arrive next Saturday (Aug.18th) we will see what the status of Baby Riese is! Baby R may want to greet them at the house instead of the hospital!
We will keep you all posted.
In the meantime...the GA heat is nasty and I am staying indoors or visiting big department stores that are nice and cold! I have 1 thing scheduled each day to do, so I don't go crazy!!!
Anxiously awaiting Baby Riese,
Jenn & Mike
