I have my 39 week appointment today. I woke up extremely crampy, so we'll see if I make my 2:30 appointment! It would be funny to go in and be in labor...at least its only 2 blocks from the hospital (an hour from my house!!!). Who would have thought with all the problems I had that I would make it to 39 WEEKS? This is my longest pregnancy EVER! I'm so glad to know that God willing he should be born healthy and safe. But let me tell you after all this, even if this wasn't our fifth child between the two of us, I'd be done!
Wish me luck today...best case scenario I go into labor on my own right before my appointment and I'm like 5-6cm at my appointment and they send me over to meet baby Ethan!
Well I was 2-3cm at my appointment (went backwards again! How in the world?). I ended up back in the hospital at midnight with contractions every 1-2 min, very painful. I had only changed to a full 3cm though, so they had me walk walk walk. It made the contractions SUPER INTENSE but when they checked me, I was only 3 to 3.5cm, and a lot thinner. So they gave me another stupid shot and sent me home.
I've been sleeping all day today, trying to catch up. I'm still contracting every 1-2 min and its killing me. My stomach is soooooo sore. Good news is Ethan's heartbeat is great and the nurse says he looks very happy in there. She says my cervix is very favorable for labor and should be anytime. She says I'm contracting plenty often enough but despite them being painful, she says they just aren't doing much of anything, so they can't admit me. *Sigh*. I guess he'll come out when he is good and ready!
