Getting a lot stronger. Not quite to the point when we are supposed to leave yet. Very close.
Still contracting. Getting stronger. Not closer.
We have contractions….at least some small, spread out ones. Got as close as 7 minutes apart this morning around 6am but then later died off. Still at home of course.
The update is that there is no update. Mom is fine. We are starting to think the baby is stubborn. Yesterday at the doctor’s appointment, the doctor did something to the membrane in or near the cervix that is supposed to help things along. That didn’t seem to work. It did caused some discomfort to Mom. But Dad won the prize for discomfort yesterday — after hours of painstaking self-surgery on the couch, a small piece of wood was removed from deep within his foot!
Doctor was surprised she had not seen us yet. Mom is 1.5 cm dialated. Mom is going back to the doctor on Friday if the baby doesn’t show up to talk about induction.
