So I showered this morning before my appt. and used the restroom... something didn't feel right, like she was really low, I felt all kinds of pressure, and after using the restroom (I swear I whipped well) a big drop of clear liquid fell on my foot and I was checking everything out trying to figure out where it came from... so I was starting to think... maybe my water broke.. maybe today will be the day...

Nope, no such luck. I don't know if I was leaking milk or from somewhere else.. Idk lol... anyways, the dr. checked my cervix and it is closed, long and firm... he said that is one reason why I'm not a good candidate for having a vaginal birth. I have 2 more appt's left... the last one will be the day before my C-section on the 27th...

It still seems soo far away! I don't know if I can take it lol...

I have this inner energy to go on a cleaning spree.. and get my school projects done... but I remind myself that if I go all crazy cleaning now, I'll have to do it all over again in a week.... because everything will be dirty again... so I'm talking myself into waiting until I finish my last 4 shifts of work... my last 2 12 hour shifts are next Tuesday and Wednesday... I took off close to a week before delivery so I can let loose with all the crazy cleaning and projects I want and need to do before baby comes... trying to save some energy right now.

I know some of you are like "wow, you are getting close"... so why does it feel like a millennium ? LOL

I think the closer we get, the days can stretch on even longer for some reason. It's like the first and second trimesters flew by, and this one is dragging on in slow motion.

I would like to know where you found your inner energy to go on a cleaning spree...I want to do it, but have absolutely no energy at all.

I have 9 days left, and it feels like an ETERNITY!!! I really really hope and pray I don't go past due like all 3/4 of my children. Only one was induced a week early.

I guess I just got lucky... I just read today that some women have absolutely no energy, whereas others get a spurt of energy.. mainly for nesting purposes.. can't explain it.. it's a good things too because just have too much to do before baby comes!

I have no idea what your situation is, so I'm not saying you shouldn't have a c-section. But just because your cervix is long and closed right now does NOT mean you aren't a good candidate for vaginal birth. That's bogus. It could be long and closed now and soft and effaced in a week or 2. Unless he was saying you're not a good candidate for induction *while your cervix is still long, closed, and firm.* That's true. You shouldn't attempt an induction on an unripe cervix like that. But not a good candidate for vaginal birth? No.

The End.

Anyway, glad you are so close to seeing your babe! I think they are all going to start popping soon and then I won't be able to keep up!

It's crazy, exciting, and scary how close to the end we all are! My due date is still a ways off, but seeing everyone else in our group so close and/or already having babies makes things sooooooo real!
