Appointment Update #3

38w 1d

Today's post brought to you by Natural Way to Induce Labor No. 15: Sex

Sex, the easiest thing ever to accomplish at nine months pregnant. Who's idea was THIS?

I went into today's doctor appointment ready to do one of the following: throw up, cry, bribe my doctor or blow up the place. I came out a lot happier than that. Last night I didn't get much sleep at all and ended up crying at around 5:30am and moving to a sitting-up position on the couch where I caught the majority of my sleep. Hey, at least Paul is getting practice - a crying baby waking him up at 5:30am, that's not going to change much.

Back to the appointment. My bagel is stuck at 1 cm, but the ham is making progress now and thinning out! Go ham, go!! Also, I now officially have a light at the end of this oh-so-dark tunnel of love. September 2nd. 10 days. If this boy (who is estimated to now be at 6.5-7 pounds, GAH) does not come on his own before September 2nd, I will be happily skipping my ass to the hospital that night for an induction. Still hoping for an early arrival on his own, but I will take it. That means that I longer have to cringe when I look ahead on my baby calendar and see the word "OVERDUE" because I will never make it that far. Can I get an AMEN?

Ah ha.........I'd like to know who agreed to be the test subjects to find out that sex really CAN cause labor. :)
