Well, I think the contractions have been doing something but I'm not really in labor yet. She checked me and she said I am 3cm on the outside but only 1cm on the inside. My cervix is really soft though so that is good. She felt his head when she checked me so he is indeed really low(it wasnt my imagination). I have been feeling sharp pains for a few days, when he punches it hurts sooo bad!
My OB said she is still considering inducing me at 39 weeks but only if my body is really ready. So if things continue this way but I dont go into labor earlier she will likely break my water at 39 weeks
The really bad part is that I asked how much weight I have gained. So far a total of 45 pounds! That is a lot more than I gained with either Reef or Finn. It is gonna take me forever to get rid of all that weight!!!
The regular 15-minute-apart contractions I had 2 nights ago really had me feeling anxious. I just hate this limbo part. All night when I wake up to pee I wonder if my water has broken. I have to find some way to distract myself. All I can think about is that he could be here at any time now!
My MIL has the boys at her hotel room tonight. She has been here a week but she has allergies so she cant stay at our house the whole time. I think this is the first time that both boys have spent the night away from me. It feels really wierd! And tomorrow she is driving them 2 hours(each way) south to visit her parents. My MIL is great with them but my emotions are so crazy right now that I am having a hard time not being terribly worried about them. I will have the whole day to myself and then my baby shower tomorrow evening but I doubt I will be able to relax. I cant wait to have this baby and be back to myself(physically and emotionally).
I am also keep getting big waves of excitement! In less than 2 weeks I will be looking in to my sweet baby boy's eyes!

Yay for progress! I can relate to your feelings on having your kids away from you. I'm sure they will have a great time. Try not to miss them too much. Hope you have a wonderful time at your shower. KUP!
For the record, I would be nervous too... I think its just a mommy thing. Add in preggo hormones & that can be a dangerous combo.
Yay for progression and being right about the pressure making a difference 'down there!' I'm sure your boys will have fun tomorrow. Hopefully you can get some rest and finish whatever last minute things you want to get done. I know ALL about waking up and wondering about your water.. I woke up every hour last night doing the same thing. Enjoy your shower this weekend!

sounds like a great day. At least the contractions have been doing something. Nothing is worse that going through that pain with no progress!
I know I get crazy nervous even when DD is two houses down at a friend's house. Enjoy the quiet of the house and Yea for a baby shower! I love the emoticons too. I need to get back to using them some. They always make me smile.
Yay for progress! Enjoy some quiet time, and have fun at your shower!
