  • Went for my 38 wk appt yesterday. Dr did check me and stripped my membranes (hopefully this get things started soon as it worked for my pg with Gavin). He said that he could easily get a full finger in my cervix with no tension whatsoever so I am about 1-2cm and pretty much effaced. YAY!!

    Went for an NST yesterday afternoon and of course this normally over active baby decided to go to Was hooked up to the machines for over an hour before we got a good reading of movements and such. Then of course when I got home it was a full on karate tournament from the inside....LOL.

    I am feeling good. Been pretty crampy since the stripping, but no real contractions to speak of. My lower back is really killing me and so are my hips and I am still getting lots of BH contractions. I am not allowing myself to be too impatient anymore. As I said to my dr, I will not get grumpy unless I am overdue, then watch out!!!
