Day 16 of Countdown to Oliver: Rest


Today was the final *Reader’s Idea*: “Put feet up and rest.”

I had an OB appointment this morning and found out I’m 1 centimeter dilated. I also met with the one OB I hadn’t had the chance to meet in my practice and adored him. I’ve asked him to stand in for my OB if she’s still on vacation when I go into labor. What a relief!

Then, I had a chiropractic appointment with my wonderful chiropractor.

Finally, after dinner, it was time to put my feet up and rest. Nothing else done off the list today! I even got homemade guacamole and a foot massage. Livin’ the life.
