Still Here...


I'm still here and still pregnant, to my shock, truth be told. I'm now more pregnant than I've been since my second pregnancy and I have no idea when this baby might decide to come. I had an appointment yesterday and the doctor stripped my membranes to try and bring on labor. She said she was very hopeful that it would work (I'm already 4.5 cm dilated) but also that she couldn't predict my uterus. Well, I had some good contractions and crampiness all day long but when I went to bed I slept the best sleep I've had in a long time, go figure. Obviously she's going to be a "handful" as she's waiting to come til her due date week because we have no one that week to watch her older siblings :-(. The stress is immense at this point. On a side note, who wants a post without a picture, so here's a random one of the boys together this week.

Hopefully Cecily will get her "handfullness" out before she decides to join the family. Either that or she really wants mommy to wake her grandma and grandpa up in the middle of the night????

I will just say that when my OB stripped my membranes with Wilson, I had pretty good contractions all day and into the night. Then they stopped completely. The next evening they started up again and I had him early in the morning. So here's hoping tonight is the night. :) You're getting one last good sleep before she arrives. It's gotta be soon. ;P

Can't wait to hear of her arrival! I can't believe you are 4.5 cm and nothing yet, amazing. Gotta be soon.

I remember with Jayden I was being tortured by this little angle (LOL) for weeks, then I had a trip to L&D where they stripped my membranes. I thought for sure he'd come that day, but he decided to wait until the day after I had the best sleep and no bh's! So maybe that's her plan...at least I hope so! I can't believe you're still pg, esp at 4.5cm!!! Can't wait to hear this birth story and see pics of your little girl! :)
Sleep well! Kim~
