Still here– Wednesday

by Mollie

Not much has changed since Monday, I am 4.5 cm dilated now, so a little more than Monday, and Natalie’s head is a bit lower (-2 station).  My doctor seems quite perplexed that I am not in labor yet!  I asked her to strip my membranes and she did– maybe something will happen tonight!  I’ve been sore and crampy ever since, so maybe that’s a good sign?  Looks like I will get my wish for a March baby, though, yay!  (Andy and I have been arguing over whether she would be born in his birthday month or mine!  Thank goodness it’s not a leap year.)

Last night we tried timing some contractions and they were 10 minutes apart for an hour, but then we got too sleepy.  They aren’t nearly strong enough to keep me awake.  Not much else to report!  We will keep you posted.

    what on earth is “stripping membranes”
    sounds gross and painful.

    I think Natalie is waiting for the full moon. 🙂

    I think she should be born on March 1st, for mathematical goodness. It’s the halfway point between my birthday and Mollie’s birthday, 3 years out of 4. 😉

    Thanks for keeping us up to date, Mollie and Andy. We\’re praying that all will go well. What a JOY to have a fine little great gradndaughter!

    Lots of love
