I went to the doc yesterday for my routine appt. all is well.
last week I had some false labour - contractions every 3-4 minutes, lasting 1 minute for a whole hour (I didn't bother waking DH, or worrying much). and since then I've had a lot of contractions - some Braxton Hicks, a few that come with some good cramps. However, with all that movement, I'm only fingertip (maybe 1cm) dialated. my doc tried to sweep my membranes yesterday, but my cervix was still really high, and only open a little bit, so she couldn't get her fingers in to do the procedure. I'm not too disappointed, I'm mentally and emotionally prepared to go 2 weeks over due this time... but I really hope I don't. especially since the U/S about 10 days ago estimated the baby's weight at 7lbs. I really want to have a small/normal sized baby this time around (even 9lbs would be awesome!). and, my doc is on vacation starting tonight until next wednesday... but it really doesn't matter to me who the catcher is - as long as its a qualified health professional.
so all is well here with this pregnancy... I'm just super tired and have a sore back most all the time now. I'm still going into work daily, and will be there right up until I have the baby - luckily work is at my parents' house, so even yesterday I laid on the couch for almost 2 hours. hope everyone else is doing well
