    I know it was inevitable, but my 5 year-old daughter Sameena (who has been asking DOZENS of questions about EVERYTHING lately) asked me how the baby comes out of my belly. I had explained it in not so much detail in prior conversations, but decided to just lay it out Mommy-to-Daughter. Her response was, "Ewwwwww...that must really hurt, Mommy!" Yes...yes it does, my dear! The poor thing looked horrified!

    Just a quick update...Felt some SCARY contractions today - like I had a snake around my waist and it was squeezing me! It sure didn't feel like the regular BHs I'm used to. Also feeling a lot more pelvic pressure when walking and having more CM the past couple days...I will get checked on Thursday by my doc to see if I have had any more progress in my dilation/effacement. This is getting so exciting! I really want this to be a truly natural CB and not a medicine induced one...TFR!

    Default 38 week appt

    Had a great 38 week appt and U/S this morning! My BP is still stable with meds (yay!) and the LO is growing, moving, practice breathing just fine! My doc said I am measuring at 39 weeks now, which isn’t too bad. I’m also 3.5 cm dilated and 75% effaced. I'm a little sad because my doctor, Ann, is going to be away on vacation next week starting Tuesday - so if I go into labor, she won't be there to deliver my LO. I am confident in her colleagues, so that is not a problem, but since this is likely my last child, I’d like her to be there – she was able to deliver my firstborn, which of course was very special…

    I am having a growth U/S next Friday and if the baby looks to be 9+ pounds (like my first LO) I will be induced on 5/13/08 when she returns from vacation. However, I am going to try EVERYTHING to induce myself this weekend – pineapple, spicy food, sex, nipple stimulus, whatever – bring it on! I know birthing big babies is do-able, but I’ve BTDT already…I’d like a nice averaged sized LO that I can actually carry around like a baby and not so much like a toddler KWIM?

    **Any advice on how to bring on labor? The only advice I’ve gotten here at work so far is to drink a glass of wine (yuck! likely won't do that) and have sex, then prop your butt up with pillows…
