Zero! Zilch! Nada! But I am spilling protein in my urine so the ob is thinking about getting things started early next week. I feel so weird today. Just dizzy and headachy. Been contracting off and on, getting some sharp pains in my back. Hopefully a nap will help. Tomorrow I am buckling down on sterilizing my floors and walls. My kids need to be able to lick them.

LOL if your kids are going to be licking the walls, better leave them germy so they get lots of good practice being immune to things!

Are they talking induction or what? Eek about protein urine.

Boo protein. Yay next week because I know you're beyond ready.

Every time I tell SO about another baby he's like, "I thought y'all were the October DDC, not September. What the hell..."

BTW, the visual of kids just standing there licking walls is amazing.

Protein but no high bp? Looks like you may get your wish to avoid waiting until you're past due, even if it's not totally in your control. KUP!

no good on the protein level, but other things sound good, sounds like you are nesty, and actually getting ready for labor... don't worry much about dilation, that can happen quick or slow, and some women go from 0 to 5 in an hour or less of contracting, although I'd be weary of being induced at a 0...
I'll be praying everything is okey dokey for you!

I do have the high blood pressure, but it's been that way for weeks. I'm normally 110/60ish, and now I'm regularly 140/80ish. That is sooooo much higher than before, but they keep saying it's not bad. I have always worked to keep low BP because heart disease/high bp runs on my dad's side. I am pitting from my boobies down. I didn't know your stomach could get indents!

Um... eek. I hope they're watching you fairly closely!

Boo for not being dilated! I'm surprised, after all the contractions you've been having. That would be great if they could get things started next week, right? Sorry you feel lousy.

Awww I'm sorry but at least your nesting. That's always fun! For me at least since I regularly dont clean...
We're due so close to each other, but looks like you'll be beating me in the birthing races

Sounds like you won't be preg for much longer! Perhaps you'll be one of those women that go from 0-10 in no time flat? I wouldn't worry too much about not being dilated, my doctor always said as long as you were soft that you were on the right track. Almost there!

I just hate it, pregnancy. I hate it so much. There isn't one part of this process that I like. All of you ladies seem to be so excited about meeting the baby. I just don't want to be pregnant. Meeting the baby is second. I don't mean to be so selfish. I try so hard to just think of the baby, but I have the hardest time bonding before birth. I'm not even into the newborn stage. I'm ready for birth to be over and baby to be 3-4 months old!

I love having my house ready for visitors. I used to vacuum and mop daily, things were organized, and I was a drawing/crafting machine. My girls got regular trips to playgrounds and the zoo. We visited family all the time and went to church regularly. I can't do anything while pregnant so everything is so nasty and boring. I have the house ready for the most part, the tidied, organized-ish part, but starting tomorrow things will be getting the spring cleaning treatment. I will be so swollen! But I'm really looking forward to everything smelling Fantastik or Pinesoly or Kaboomy. My mom is hiding out here while my dad is working so she will be helping a bunch.

She did say I was soft! I tried to check my own cervix last week and yesterday. I did notice it was softer than before, like I might O in a few days. lol So hopefully it'll just suddenly pop open.

boo for no dialation, and protein....but it does sound like things may be coming to a close for you with all the nesting. I get like that too sometimes.

I wish my bp would be as low as 140/80, lol. I have never had a reading that good.

Sounds like you will get your wish of not being pregnant sooner rather then later! Sorry you are feeling so crummy, but glad you will be getting the earlier birth you wanted.

I can only imagine what the poor lady from Aug. DDC still waiting for hers was thinking when she saw that the Oct. DDC has started to go. Hopefully, she had it already I can't imagine they would let her go beyond this week.

Last night I checked for an update from her, and I didn't see anything. I'm hoping it's because she's in the hospital recovering and snuggling her baby.

Okay the protein in your urine thing and the high blood pressure sucks but WOOHOO for things starting for you next week!!! I'm sticking by my opinion of you being term, Miss Lily being healthy according to the docs, and them letting the suffering you're going through stop by inducing you. I hope you pop before then on your own Keep us posted.
