and… still pregnant.

The hospital could not get me in yesterday. We are pretty disappointed, but I should be able to get in today. There were 4 people ahead of me to be induced and they were very busy.

I was starting to think that I might naturally start labor last night. I was experiencing contractions that were getting stronger, until they stopped. Baby has moved around a lot more today than usual, at least for morning movements. Baby usually seems to move a lot more in the evening. He/she also had hiccups this morning. Those always amuse me. They certainly put me in a better mood.

Not much else that I feel like writing about. Hopefully my next post will be all about my new baby boy/girl.

Arrrrgh!

Baby really needs to come out now. I am tired of all the walking I have done. Well, it was too cold and rainy to do much walking today… Anyway, it would be really awesome if baby made an appearance tonight. I am serious. Labor would be a huge improvement to the discomfort I have felt since Friday.

Along with the discomfort, I have discovered that I now have trouble bending and squatting. The bending was difficult before, but pretty much impossible now. This has put a damper on putting away dishes from the dishwasher and getting laundry out of the dryer.

I did have a pretty big contraction last night that woke me up. However, it did not last and I did not get anymore. Bleh. I’ve read up on ways to naturally help induce labor, but I know that Baby will come when Baby wants to. Even with the scraped membranes (which was one of the inducements I came across). One suggestion was to relax to a romantic movie, so I watched Valley Girl. It did make me relax and laugh, but no baby…

I’ve felt a lot of back pain today, which makes me wonder a bit if I am starting to have back labor. Of course, it could be from all the fricking walking I have done. I am very cranky tonight. I was very cranky just before Sol decided to come too. Maybe it will be tonight??? One can hope.
