I am super tired from not sleeping all week and I am really frustrated that I haven't gone into labor on my own like I had hoped. But, alas, I think my body just does not like to give up babies. Loves to get pregnant and wants to stay that way FOREVER. I had another really frustrating run-in with false labor last night, especially frustrating bc the circumstances would have been perfect for me to give birth in the night and everything would have worked out pretty easily. Things will be more complicated with DD now, but I guess that's how it goes. It is not quite 4am and I can't sleep for being frustrated and DH's snoring doesn't help.

I have what should be my last appointment with my midwife at 8:30 this morning. She will sweep my membranes and I will have her tell me when I should go to L&D to start on the shot of pitocin she said they would give me today to really get things moving. I'm just really hoping she is born before midnight. Since today would be my grandparents' anniversary, it has the potential to be a really tough day for my family. We all got together and celebrated every year from 60-68. But this year, neither one of them was here. Before we lost my grandpa, he thought it was really cool that she could have their anniversary as her birthday and I really want that to happen. If she is born sometime after midnight, I will be so disappointed. I think my family really needs this today and I know I do. Not to mention that all of this false labor I have had is seriously making me crazy.

Depending on how things go with the membranes and pitocin, I am not sure when I will get a chance to update, but I am taking my tablet to the hospital, so I will do my best. I am praying that this works out better than my last run-in with pitocin, but I am mentally at the point that I don't even care how labor goes as long as it produces a healthy baby today. Looking forward to posting a birth story!

Update #1: I went to my appt, had my membranes stripped, and was sent straight to L&D to start the pitocin. Got here around 9, but didn't get the pitocin going until about noon. It's 3 now. I was 4 cm dilated to start, no further checks yet. Regular contractions 2-3 mins apart, but not too painful. When they decide to check again, I hope I've made some good progress, but not sure since they don't seem that bad. DD has been here with us the whle time and she has been a complete angel. If she can last another hour and a half, my mom can take her home until my sister arrives between 6 and 7. Things are looking good so far. I hope it's only up from here!

Good luck. Second deliveries usually go faster. You have a great shot of your little girl having today as a birthdate.
