Still Here…

Day Nine…

Contractions are stronger today than yesterday, but not strong enough to go to L&D. I’m seriously hoping to progress….but, I don’t think it’s going to happen today. We’re getting a snow storm. We have a truck so it’s not like we’re stuck, but it would likely take us 2 hours to get to the hospital tonight if we had to go. Oh such mixed emotions! LOL. I’m like “bring it on, I want this kid out!” But, 2 hours in a snow storm isn’t really ideal…

I walked with a good friend of mine yesterday which was great. I felt pretty darn good yesterday up until the evening. That’s good I guess (except for that “I want labor to progress” thing that’s running on repeat in my head. Walking did feel good. Plus it was super fun to catch up with her and her little 3 week old peanut. He’s so adorable and perfect 🙂 We walked at the field house of the local University. I’m pretty sure I’m a walking birth control bilboard…My hips hurt, I’m HUGE, I’m not really smiling, and I’m waddling around the track with these college kids all around…I’m pretty sure I scream “DON’T GET KNOCKED UP!” 🙂 And yet we tried (really hard) for this baby! Ahh life is funny.

Anywho…that’s all for now. Your comments are wonderful – thank you so much. This pregnancy sure has been a roller coaster ride…can we get to the gate now though? I’m all done! 😉



  1. Wow, Day 9, really? Your body is unbelievable. Hope you make progress soon (but maybe not in the horrible snow tonight).

  2. You are doing great!! Keep walking, busy and active – it makes it so much easier to get through this! I hope that, like me, when you finally DO go into labor it is quick and easy because of all the work your body is doing now. It can happen fast – I was sure it was never going to end. Things were more intense my last night, and I was so frustrated. When my water actually broke, I was shocked – I couldn’t believe it was actually time! I don’t think I would have known I was ready to go if my water hadn’t broken. Good luck and I hope that things finally get moving soon!

  3. Wow, I just can’t believe you are still enjoying all that contractions fun. Hopefully soon things will begin to change. I’m sure all the walking will really help and the snow won’t stop you from getting to the hospital when you really need to.

  5. You may be “huge” but you look so good. I doubt very much you’re much of a walking birth control message! And you absolutely won’t be when little baby boy arrives! He could start a spike in pregnancies!
