    The membrane sweep didn't work, but I didn't expect it to anyways. I did alot of walking yesterday to see if that will help move things along. I will go again on Tuesday and they will check to see if I have made any more progress. On a good note, I decided that today will be my last day at work before the baby comes. I will just use vacation time until I go into labor so that way I don't use up any of my 12 weeks of maternity leave. I have plenty of vacation time so I am not worried about using a week or 2 before he comes. It is a nice feeling knowing that after today I won't have to be back for a few months. I am going to take the next week or so to relax and get ready for his arrival.

    Sorry you didn't get the jumpstart you were hoping for, but not going back to work and rest sounds perfect!

    Our growth ultrasound today went well. He is measuring 7lbs 3 oz. my fluids are getting low. They were just over 8. It dropped from 10.8 on Wednesday. They said that is normal and at the ultrasound on Wednesday if they are below 7 they will send me for a NST and with it being so close to my due date, they may just induce me. Hopefully he comes before then.

    Happy to hear about your growth scan! Just a few more days left, you're so close now! And that's great you decided to take off work and rest. I have 5 days left of work and can't wait to be done.

    Appt yesterday went well. I am now dilated to 2 and 60% effaced and soft. The dr did say that of fluids drop below 7 today on my us they will induce since I am so close to my due date. She said she better not see me at my appt on Monday. If I do make it that long she will set up an induction. It is exciting to think that when we leave for the appt today that next time we come home we will have Michael. My dh went I to work early today so he can make the appt and he can come home first sonwe only have to take one car. I have it all loaded up
    With our bags. I have been doin last minute things around the house like dishes, laundry and last minute cleaning. I don't want to come home to a mess and a pile of things to do.

    The waiting is killing me LOL. I think I am getting closer though. I was up for about 2 hours this morning with some contractions. They were more painful then what I have had in the past. Tomorrow my dh is going to his grandpa's funeral. I won't be able to go since I have a dr appt and I haven't really been able to go to a funeral since my mom's. I keep thinking that Michael will come tomorrow as a way to help the greiving. I don't know why I have that feeling.

    Been having really bad back contractions for about 8 hours. I tried sleeping but was woken up by one so that isn't going to work. They are coming about every 10 min but the pain is so bad already not sure if I should go in or wait till they are closer together. At least if we go in DH was able to sleep. He is snoring away next to me LOL

    If the contractions are consistent and getting more intense plus it isn't far for you to go in - wouldn't hurt to check! Fingers crossed he comes soon!

    Sent us home and 3 hours we were back. I was dilated to 4.5and 90% effaced. They admitted me and got my epi right away. Just relaxing now. The contractions have slowed down so I am waiting to see if they will just
    Break my water to see if that helps or if
    I will get pitocin.

    They broke my water but it didn't have any effect. They just started the pitocin.
