Eviction Notice

That's what I issued this baby today at my Dr.'s appt when I had him strip my membranes! I woke up at midnight thinking I was for sure in labor & decided to try & go back to sleep for a few hours, but I wasn't that comfortable & I was pretty anxious so I got up about 4:30am to sit on the couch. Of course the contractions stopped! So at my appt. he said I'm still only 70% effaced & dilated to a 2 (up a 1/2 cm from last week!). I'm so surprised! I don't know how this baby's still inside with all of the strong contractions I've been having! So my Dr. thinks he'll see me this weekend, but I made an appt. for Tuesday just in case & he said he'll induce me if the membrane stripping doesn't end up working. It worked with Callie, but it was really painful with her & this wasn't a big deal so I wonder if it will work. Anyway, that's the latest! Put a fork in me - I'm DONE! He did warn me however that I can't have the baby tonight between 6-9 because he's got a pinewood derby to go to! :) That's okay, Lost & Survivor are on tonight!

The night Adam was born, I was having contractions and such but had to stay home to finish Lost- so I totally understand. If you haven't seen Lost, you don't understand that you can't let a silly thing like going into labor stop you from watching!
