all these impending labors... i'm sooo excited for you all!
lots of prodromal labor over here, too. last night was really the first night that i thought, "nooooooo! i need to get some sleep before i really go into labor!!" and so i went to bed at 10:30, and played solitaire on my phone and waited for either my water to break, or the every 3-4 minute contrax to peter out. and here i am at 5am, wide awake again.
went to the peri yesterday, and was measuring way ahead again~ i am currently 37 weeks, and measuring 45 weeks.
baby's activity level has been great, bp and weight gain are super, but holy katz! this one is going to be even bigger than the last one!! i NEED to go soon for my pelvis' sake!!
no pelvic exam, though, to see where i currently am. i
my peri (never thought that would happen!!) he said he won't do an internal unless i specifically ask for one because there's not a compelling reason: one, i don't seem to dilate early (my last pregnancy went from 2 cm dilated to delivery in 3.5 hours
) two, he won't stop the labor anyway at this point, and three, so why possibly introduce an infection?
and so, the contrax that yesterday were consistent and insistent from 3 o'clock on? who knows what that did as far as labor goes. these were stop and focus and yowch! that's what a twingy cervix feels like!
so ready for a good night's sleep and real labor to get underway. they're both close... i just can't seem to grab them!!!
