Post 38w

My OB stripped my membranes on Tuesday. I have had hours-long stretches of contractions here and there, but no real labour. Due to the small size of our L&D ward (3 beds), I have to wait until the weekend for the possibility of induction. Basically, there are people in line ahead of me and I have to wait my turn.

If it's your type of thing, please say a few prayers that I will go into labour ASAP. Though I don't actually like the idea of spontaneous labour, I would rather that than waiting much longer.

Today, this baby is the same gestational age as C. was. It's going to be a long day.

Hang in there, keeping you and the baby in my thoughts. Hoping the next update is a picture of the little one.

I have no idea what happens to my prayers anymore, but I will absolutely say some for you.

Thinking of you all on this tough day/milestone, and I have everything crossed that bubby comes soon. The waiting must be torturouos for you all.

Hugs and love,
