37 weeks!

Ok so finally I am considered "Term"!! Woohooo!

I have to admit, I'm a little discouraged though. I have been having ALOT of contractions recently. They are really painful and keep me up all night long. They never get closer than about 10 mins apart so I never end up going to the hospital, but wow, there have been several times when I have wanted to. (My Dr tells you not to go to the hospital until your contractions are 5 mins apart)

I'm still 3 cms and 100% effaced and my Dr keeps telling me "soon" but it doesn't seem to be happening. If these painful contractions were at least making progress, then it would be worth it but I have been 3 stinking cm for 2 weeks now...UGH!!! I know I sound like I am complaining, and honestly I AM! It's just that all of these contractions are really taking a toll on me. Dr E also informed me today that he will not induce me until I am one week past my due date... WHAT???? ONE WEEK!! Are you freaking kidding me? Ugh, you can blame my bitterness today on lack of sleep since I only got 3 hours last night due to...you guessed it, CONTRACTIONS!

Ok I'll stop with the bitterness now. It looks like London will actually be a March baby after all!! Which is probably for the best since I like that birth stone better anyway. HAHAHA!

If he makes it to March 11th, then we'll have the same birthday! I hope you get some sleep soon!

Girl, don't you know that HE is the boss now? From now on???? Didn't you see the pic of Ethan's "I'm the boss" onesie?? :) I'm sure it's getting to you by now, but he can't stay in there forever so hopefully today will be the day!
