Does anyone watch "The First 48?" (Can you tell I've done little but watch television for the past three days? Oh my lord ...)
I saw my doctor today and I'm 2 cm dilated. I've got that nonstress test scheduled for Friday, a follow-up appointment on Monday, and then (if Peanut hasn't arrived) we begin discussing induction.
However, I haven't felt so hot today. I'm hoping that's a good sign. As soon as I got home this morning, I began having more contractions. They're mostly medium in intensity, but some are a little more, um, intense. I'm also a bit weepy, which isn't like me at all. And third, I just feel icky. I'm hoping these aren't all psychological processes protecting me, but rather signs from my body that it's almost time. Right, body? Right?!?!?!
Many people have recommended that I use this time to read parenting books, but um, I haven't really done that. Others have suggested cooking a lot of food and freezing it. Hmm... yeah, no. Look at me - not following anyone's advice. I suck. I've mostly been napping and watching TV (see above). At least I'm well-rested.
And that's about it from here. I hope all of you are having a good week.
