Sorry to disappoint you all but there is no news yet. I'm still pregnant and still at home! I was starting to get some anxious comments, so I apologize for keeping you in the dark all day :) I just didn't feel like posting this morning with NO news to report! I will try to keep you all up-to-date though as much as I can!
I was pretty discouraged that nothing happened after yesterday's appointment - though I'm told that going into labour anytime within a few days of getting one's membranes stripped means it has been successful, so there is still hope! Not that it would be the end of the world to go past my due date, it would just mean having a different doctor do the delivery. And after all the contractions and false alarms I've been having, the wait seems unbearable!
So, I'm trying to fill my days with lots of activities - shopping or baking Christmas cookies or whatever. This afternoon I went for a vigorous walk with my friend Kelly and baby Taeya. She's so cute!
Ever since the walk I've been having strong and regular (but painless) contractions. They feel very tight and uncomfortable but I wish they would really hurt!! Erik said he has a feeling that "tonight is the night" but he's said that so many times this week that I told him to stop - it doesn't help to get my hopes up!
