DH and I are taking bets on whether Dash will try and beat Corbin's record of 6 days past EDD. He seems pretty cozy in there!

I have an appointment with my MW this afternoon and she is going to do an internal. I am going to tell her not to give me any details. I don't want to be disappointed again!

Eek! It will be so soon! Even if he takes his time, once he is in your arms you won't remember and then time will just FLY by! Good luck Mama!

So true! Those 2 days after my EDD felt like FOREVER and the last 2 weeks have totally flown by. It's actually a little sad. I'm sure Dash will be here before you know it. I'm guessing within 4 days. Just a guess, though! LOL!

thanks for the kind words! i am back from my appointment and totally caved.

she was doing my internal and mentioned how wonderfully soft my cervix was and then i just said... "am i dilated?"

the words just flew out of my mouth. oh well. i will take what she told me with a grain of salt.

4cm dilated, baby is at a 0 station, and i am about 60% effaced.

Probably not too much longer! I agree, the time will just fly by after he gets here. I wish I could go back to being 40 weeks (or sooner) and experience it all over again! Savor every moment while you can!

i'm not sure. i have been walking a lot, had some fresh pineapple, tried eating some spicy foods, DTD, and even had some orgasms!

and i just vacuumed our whole house! what else should i try? it seems like my effacement is the main thing that needs to happen before he can make his appearance.

oh, and i am having lots of bloody show this morning! it's actually pretty gross! but no contractions. i was up around 4am having a few pretty good ones, but slept in between and now they are gone. i'm home alone right now, so i don't want to go out walking without a partner.

i have started having some contractions now, but nothing painful whatsoever. i'm scared that my hypnobabies view on my birthing time will trick me into feeling no discomfort until it's almost time! and i have an hour drive to the BC!

i'm making myself a pepperoni pizza right now.
