You're sooooo close to hitting active labor naturally!
Nothing happened last night though I can't blame DH as he works such long days, has a long commute and was floored. I knew it wasn't even worth trying.
Woke up around 3 and got seriously scared that DS was not okay because he wasn't moving. Usually he'll at least shift around but when he didn't, I figured juice would get him to move a little like it usually does. Two glasses, some cereal and almost an hour later and he finally did his kick counts but I was terrified and bawling.
Amnio went way better procedure wise then I expected. My OB is really one of the nicest (and most skilled) people around. The nurse I had was the same one who I had with Emma and she's amazing. My MW also took time out of her day to be there for it. They gave me ladocane and that was the worst part of it. I've had piercings hurt worse then the ladocane and I didn't feel the amnio needle at all. Because of my contractions, they checked my cervix but he said I'm just 2 and about 50/50 on the favorability thing so we'd wait to induce until Monday at 7 am if the amnio came back mature. Unfortunately, he called a few hours later and told me the results were immature. Now the plan is to hope I go into labor before 38 weeks and if not we'll do another amnio then and induce next Friday.
I hope you go into labor before next weeks amnio!

Sorry he gave you such a scare. I'm glad he finally started moving for you though. I hope your next amnio comes back mature. What a roller coaster this all must feel like.

Thanks ladies. It has been a bit of a roller coaster. Yesterday I had a hard time keeping it together as I felt we were so close to the end either way (with having induction times/dates set) but I'm thinking positive today. My cervix isn't ideal (or wasn't then), he was LOP (he's moved back to the right today but still OP from what I can tell) and obviously his lungs being immature isn't ideal. Going to do what I can this weekend but if nothing comes of it, I just tell myself we will all be okay. I'm getting frustrated with the lack of sleep I'm getting. I'm up every night and can't sleep for hours, but then crash for a few hours in the morning. Thank goodness DH is home to help with DD for a couple days. It's always at night I have the most contractions/itching/hb but I tell myself no matter how things happen, the end is near.
On a more fun note, here are some pictures from yesterday. We went and ate junk food pizza and had ice cream at the mall. DD saw Santa and tried her first taste of ice cream (she's got a lactose intolerance so we don't let her have dairy often at all). I'm an emotional eater sometimes.

Been feeling decent today. Contractions are mostly just tightening and cramping. Going to try to get some good walking in tomorrow, more hubby time and maybe a pedi if we have the time for it.
I almost got excited about labor last night. I'd had contractions that were getting more noticeable all day (despite not really doing a lot to bring them on) and by 10 they were coming every 8-10 minutes and getting stronger. Stayed that way when at midnight I figured I should sleep just incase. Obviously nothing came of it. I am going to keep doing the spinning babies inversion, making sure i"m not reclining and all that sort of posterior switching stuff as I think that's the issue he's having. We're getting the first of a few snow storms today so DD will be thrilled to play in that. Only expecting 1-4" today so nothing major.
