    I bet you are making progress. The contractions I had that stopped me in my tracks were the ones that were dilating me! Keep up everything you are doing!!!

    Hey I did not know the average was 40w 3 days for 2tm... does that mean I get to have my baby tonight

    I totally know what you mean about facing induction. It's an unfortunate road to have to walk down and if you ever need to talk let me know. I've got 13 days left before the induction talks.

    There's still time! I'm not sure where I read that, but it was nice to know that even for us 41-42wk gestaters, there's hope that we don't have to wait quite so long the 2nd time!

    Hang in there! I know, easier said than done. I'm starting to feel the urgency, even though deep down I am truly fine with waiting. It sucks to have to let those feelings collide. I don't *want* to feel like I need to do anything special to get this baby closer to birth. I just want to go about my business and enjoy my big and growing belly and see just how much I can keep getting done.

    Red face ouch!

    In the immortal words of Oprah (and oft-repeated by The Soup): My va-jay-jay's painin'!

    I'm not usually one to complain (much) but today the pain and pressure are kicking into high gear. I don't know if I overdid it yesterday w/the shopping and being on my feet, or if I just didn't get enough sleep, but today I'm walking around like I'm 80. I feel every step in my pelvis/cervix, and my belly is very achy. When I'm sitting, I'm fine, but as soon as I get up and walk around it hurts. I have to go slow and sometimes actually hold my belly--classic, huh?

    Maybe something is happening--baby descending finally? I have been sitting on the birth ball a lot more. In our old house we used it as a computer desk chair, and had an open downstairs floorplan so it was always accessible. New house has multiple separate rooms downstairs with steps up and down between them, so I find myself rolling that silly ball from kitchen to LR to den to bathroom (I sit on it when I dry my hair, do my makeup, and bathe DD.)

    OOH! Hurtin' va-jay-jay is a good sign! I'm sure I read about that in TWG or WTEWYE

    Ohhh, I'm more excited about your appt than mine this week, I think. And that's really weird to be excited about the state of someone else's cervix. Especially when it's someone you've never met.

    OK I need to spend more time on my birth ball. I've only been doing 10-15 min per night. Hmmm...

    And 40+3 is the average for STM, huh? Very interesting that docs around here start talking induction before you even hit your EDD. I swear Anyway, I'm thinking you'll go before your EDD if not on it. Yipee!!!!

    Hey Helina. Sounds like things are starting to happen for you. Did you get the grant out today? I hope so!

    Getting closer anyhow. I have a problem staying focused on work lately. (It actually started back in September...) It's an electronic submission to NIH and their new system is SO complicated. I'm hoping to get it back to our grants & contracts people today so it's off my desk.

    Laura, you are so funny! I'm not sure I'm going to go for an internal check on Thurs. The MW will check baby's station externally so maybe if some miraculous droppage occurs between now and then I might ask for a check... I'm also considering asking about EPO or other things to help me along, just because I went so long w/o ripening last time.

    I read this and my heart sped up! It's something I don't let myself believe, but then you go and say it and I think, "Hey, MAYBE!"

    Sounds like you are in a good place, and how exciting it would be if you went before your EDD, its getting so close.
