I was not dilated or anything at my appointment and still was not when I came in today. However, I did start to have regular, stronger contractions (I'd call them intense Braxton Hicks or really weak real ones) after acupuncture yesterday. Now that I'm hooked up to a monitor (and of course they've even increased since we've been here), it's crazy to see how close together they are. Again, they are super weak (not painful, just uncomfortable), so I wouldn't exactly call them progress but they are happening. So, we'll just see what happens. I am cool with a c-section if that's what happens, but I obviously hope this works! I also hope that I'm still not in labor at this time tomorrow. Ha!
So, anyway, I am sure things are about to get really crazy in my life but I will try to post an update as soon as possible announcing our little girl. Hard to believe we're here. It still doesn't seem real and I really don't know when it will. I said after she's in my arms, but one of my friends said in 6-12 months. Ha! So thankful to God for His perfect timing and provision. The waiting sucks. So bad. I don't forget, believe me. But the end reward is going to be so worth it. Psalm 127:3
Oh, and for the record, my prediction is that she will weigh 6 lb 8 oz, be 19" long and have light brown hair (that will eventually be blonde). Matt says 7 lb 8 oz, 20" long and bald. :) Also have other people in on this but we'll just memorialize our guesses here for now. Winner gets the glory. (Oh, and someone just had a baby... they play a lullaby whenever a baby is born here... this is #3 in the 3.5 hours we've been here and I LOVE it.)
