No progress

Well, here's my baby update, such as it is. They stripped my membranes yesterday afternoon, which didn't feel great, but didn't really hurt either. I had a few contractions, so we decided to go walk up the canyon. Three miles and an hour later, the contractions basically stopped. I had them off and on all night, but nothing regular. They say it can take up to 48 hours for them stripping them to do anything, but at this point, I'm pretty much planning on the induction on Tuesday. As far as other progress, I haven't really started at all, but that doesn't worry me so much, because I was in labor with Griffin for a long time before I dialated at all. I've only started out dialated with one (Maxton, I was a four when then induced me and had been for over a week).

Today would be perfect, but I'm not counting on it. I would just love to have the long weekend with David home before he goes back to work. Tuesday is just bad timing for all of that. He only has like 1.5 days of vacation, so if he's gone and my mom is gone, it might be a bit of a tough week. But we'll make it through. I know my mom is making me a few meals to put in the freezer and I generally feel great after having a baby, but it still worries me a bit.

However, I feel like I've done everything possible to have this baby and it's just out of my hands now. I feel peaceful, like things will work out, but I'm sad that my mom probably won't be here for her birth, but that's life. I've tried everything I know to start labor, but I just don't think she's ready to give up her warm, comfy spot.

  1. I guess this little girl is just showing you her stubborn side! Hopefully she gets here soon!
