This post might be a little graphic. So squeamish, look away. boys, don't read this. You've been warned.
This little girl is never coming out.
I will be pregnant forever.
I no longer remember what it feels like to not be pregnant.
I am dilated to a 2... and thinned out... but (to my knowledge), I am not having any contractions. I started getting PMS type cramping last night and into today, but I am not sure that's a real contraction. She said if I keep getting them, time 'em. So that's just what I'll do!
Our doctor says baby is more than ready. She stripped my membranes today (see... I warned you... TMI) and said all we can do now is wait. (For those of you who are unaware, stripping the membranes is a technique that is supposed to jump start the contractions in the least invasive manner possible. Google it.)
Our due date is Thursday. 10/11/12. What a cool birthday, right? Hopefully SHE thinks so too...
We have a nursery, and a name, and a wardrobe... now all we need is a baby.
If she is not here before, we will have another appointment Monday which will include another NST (non-stress-test), another membrane strip, and another heartbeat check.
On the bright side, we scheduled the induction if it gets to that point. If you don't hear sooner, we are having this baby on the 18th and we go in at 5am to be induced. Ideally she'll be here tomorrow... or yesterday. I would be fine with either.
All you other moms, did YOU get this anxious too? What did you do to keep your mind off your discomfort?
