Still Pregnant...

Okay - so I had an appointment this afternoon...and still not much is happening. I'm 1cm dialated - but not effaced at all and the baby is still high - which sucks because as you all probably know, ain't NOTHING gonna happen until this kid drops.
He asked me alot of questions about what I've been feeling and what we've been doing and he said all the walking is great and we're pretty much doing everything we can, it's just up to the kid. He said we have time to be patient this week and if he hasn't heard from me by next week, then we'll talk about our next move - which would be induction.
He did remind me that the baby is ultimately in charge and I could very well go into labor at any time - so he doesn't want me to get discouraged by the 1cm...it's just the way it goes for now.

I'm TRYING not to be frustrated and trying to be patient - but it's getting difficult!

So "Hurry up and wait" is our motto this week :)

It might be time to resort to #11 of things to do before the baby comes (this one is the least well known.....lets just say it could be QUITE some time before you partake in any 'extra-curricular' activities)

I agree with Joanna. If anything it's always good for a laugh :-) Hang in there.

So now every morning, I log on and see in my inbox 8 messages or 10 messages, and I'm like - OHHHHH BOY - I hope one of those is from Amanda, telling me that exciting things have happened.

But alas - nothing.

Oh well - we'll all hurry up and wait with you!
