39 week addendum
Just a little blurb about my appointment yesterday. There had been no progress since the following week even though all day yesterday I felt exactly like I did the day Peyton was born, having Braxton Hicks contractions like crazy. I was so sure that they were going to tell me that active labor was going to start soon. No such luck. So instead I had my membranes stripped (or swept if you prefer that term) which has led to a whole lot of nothing. I had some mild cramping yesterday afterwards, but have had a decrease in contractions today. We walked all over the place this morning and I hardly had any, which is very unusual since a ton of contractions when I was being physically active was why I quit working. And I've been lightheaded and nauseated again which seems to be blood sugar and heat related. All I do is eat, eat, eat. We've got many predictions of a Father's Day baby. I can only hope at this point that that is true because now I am imagining that I'm going to go overdue and the thought of being pregnant that much longer is not something I wish to entertain.
