Here in my belly. Still. I’m gonna lose it. I was SURE that I had progressed from last week (which was 1 generous cm, 60% effaced). When she checked me…nope. I was the same. It was really hard not to cry. Last time, with Alice, when I cried she prescribed me valium. Ha, I kinda laugh about it now when I think of it. I must have sounded like a desperate, crazy girl.
She did strip my membranes (tmi?) so I hope that works some…
I’m trying really hard to just keep a good attitude about it. But try telling a 9+ months pregnant woman that “she’ll be here before you know it,” and, “You’re almost there, she won’t stay in there forever.” I know all this. I know it’s a matter of days, but I hurt. She moves constantly and my ribs suffer from it. I pee every 10 minutes. My sciatic nerve hits several times a day and it’s painful. Lugging Alice around for all the drop off/pick ups of the kids is getting harder and harder with a giant belly. Oh, and I’m sleeping zip. Nada. I’m exhausted every single day and I just wanna have this baby.
But I’m almost there.
She won’t stay in there forever.

Let’s hope this castor oil works. (and yes, I’m very serious).
