Update

Another Monday at work. Maybe my last, well at least second to last I hope. This weekend was pretty damn miserable. I definitely had hours of relief where I felt semi normal, but then would have these horrible random contractions. I saw my doc this morning and he said it sounds like false labor. Good times. Since I woke up this morning I have felt okay. He did an internal though, so now I am feeling extra menstrual crampy. I am 2 cm,50% effaced and the baby is at a -1 station. He could feel her head, that’s kind of gross! So, it could still be awhile, or it could be tonight, who the heck knows. All I know is that I can deal with this, I know I need to quit worrying about, but being at work is going to seriously blow this week. Mostly b/c I am so on edge and irritable and no position is really comfortable thanks to the horrendous back pain that started on Friday. Sitting on the edge of my work chair though isn’t too bad, but I know at some point I will have to put my feet up today.

On a positive note. I did have a relaxing weekend. We watched several movies over the course of the weekend that I picked up at the library. In an effort to save money I cancelled our Netflix subscription. I was surprised to find so many newer releases at the library. We also went to G’s dad’s house on Sunday for Easter and had a nice meal. And then to his mom’s house and she loaded us up with chocolate. G and I came home and cuddled on the couch and watched a stupid movie – What Happens in Vegas. Not a bad way to spend our possible last weekend as a childless couple. Tonight we must go to the grocery store and get stocked up, we are out of everything.

Hang in there! You could be a Mom any day now - strange feeling huh? I promise it is all worth it! Keep the updates coming and good luck! :-)

Warning...sensitive material for non-mommies.

Did your doc strip your membranes or did he just check you? If you had spotting afterward and menstrual like cramping then he may have stripped your membranes...if so go have some fun with Gary. It will be uncomfortable, but I completely believe it will send you into labor within 24 hours.

Girl, I must say you're doing a pretty good job with detailing your situation. I can feel your pain, and I don't have the slightest clue what it's like to be pregnant. Hopefully this will be your last week of work for a while. I'm thinking about you!

Smooch

Hang in there. I know exactly how you feel. Definitely have some quality time with the hub and relax. I am glad we did that since now quality time means we give Jack a bath together or sit on the couch half-asleep together waiting to get through the next feeding.

Use your pregnancy to your advantage at work. During my last week I said "I'm pregnant and I'm irritable and I'm not negotiating this with you" and it worked! And if it makes you feel any better you are already further along than I was before I was induced. I never got past 1 cm.
