Went to appt. today (40 wks 2 days)

My Dr. said I was 3 cm dialated, cervix still long, but soft. I asked about using a breast pump to get the oxytocin going, and he gave me the okay. He stripped the membranes a tad. My appt. was at 5pm.

Well, the past few hours, I've been having some really crampy and in-the-back contractions. I hope this means that we are coming down to the wire!!


An induction has been scheduled for 8/21, but I don't want to be induced!!! I NEED to have this baby in the next couple of days!

Well, I am glad you started having some contractions after the membrane stripping. Are you still having contractions? I am sending ~~~~~ELV~~~~~~~ your way. I just need you to send them back in a couple weeks. . .

well, I am still here. I kept having those crampy contractions, but they were irregular. I would even wake up when I had them, but nothing significant. Today is the day for a BIG walk. FOR SURE!!!!
