Update: Almost Week 39

So.  I’m still only 1 cm and at a -2 station, but the doctor is saying she’s seen lots of women start labour at this stage, so it doesn’t mean that we’re all that far off, or that the baby is coming sooner. 

On the plus side, the doctor stripped my membranes today.  It hurt.  A lot.  But if it’s going to work (and it’s a big IF), I should be in labour in the next 24-48 hours.  So we’ll see how it goes.  I plan on doing lots of walking around and all those other things (minus the castor oil and home enema) to get this party started. 

Oh!  No weight gain this week!  It was very exciting – last week I had only gained one pound and this week… none at all!  Yay! 

Anyway, that’s all I’ve got for an update on the preggo side of things.
