  • I had another fun appointment today.
    Everything's still the same - 1 to 2 cm dilated, baby's low, and cervix is super soft. So we're just waiting around. I made an appointment for next Thursday, which got me all depressed cause that's 5 days after my due date.
    Hopefully I won't make it to that appointment, but who knows. If he hasn't come by then I'm giving him the eviction notice and we'll set up a date for an induction for after I hit 41 weeks.

    COME ON BABY!!!!!!

  • Thanks Carolle!
    I actually asked my doctor about not progressing and she said it's more common for women to have the "practice" contractions and to dilate than not to have any contractions at all until labor. My mom was that way with all 6 of her kids and I was the same with Cora. I didn't have a single contraction until I was finally in labor. Just makes it harder to wait!!!
