    Not much action today. Just got back from a MW appt. She said Jack's head is much more engaged, only moving a little side to side. So maybe I will have a baby someday. My feet started swelling Monday or Tuesday but my blood pressure was good and no protein in my sample, so all seems fine. No word back on my GBS yet, and I have orders for routine blood work. So we made an appt. for next Thurs.

    DH tried to check my cervix this morning, that was entertaining. His verdict: I'm either really open, or really closed. ... Insightful. I wasn't expecting much, it seems like the kind of thing that takes practice. I doubt we will try again, no need to muck things up, but it was a fun experiment. Personally, I doubt I am past a 3 since I haven't seen any mucus. Last time, after 3cm, I passed a bit off and on for 3 weeks 'till I delivered. The suspense - it is killing me.

    DH & DS came to the appt. with me. DS recognizes the Doppler and points to it each time and says, "bru-der ha-beat" (brother heartbeat). It is too cute. Today while the midwife checked the heart Will sat in his daddy's lap and listened intently as the thump thump thump filled the room. He blows me away sometimes.

    My stretch marks - which had been pretty calm for all the pregnancy - became a vivid red/purple this week. Hopefully this kid makes an exit before they get really out of hand.

    That's awesome that you had DH check you!! Haha! I tried to check my own cervix last week and couldn't really tell anything - I thought the same thing - either I'm really dilated or I'm not - turns out I wasn't - haha! Hope things start moving for both of us really soon!!!!

    I've been contracting for about 2 hours, between 3-5 min apart lasting a little over 1 min. each. I called the MW and gave her a heads up and told her I would call back if things got more consistent or more intense. I'm not ready to call it yet, but it was enough action for DH to pack me, DS and the kid we nanny into the car and bring us all home. :P

    I'm gonna take a shower and lie down and see if things crank up or die down. The anticipation is KILLLLLLLING me!!!!

    No baby! False alarm. I'm so frustrated and feel so stupid for DH calling out and MIL leaving work early. I'm still contracting but it's all Braxton Hicks again. Whatever, he's bound to show up eventually. In the mean time I'm going to drink a tall glass of chocolate milk and go to bed.
