No baby!

This little girl is sure stubborn. As you can guess, the stripping of the membranes yesterday didn't work. It was the second time they've done it and I'm now dilated to just under 4 cm and 80% effaced. I don't know what she's doing in there!
Our next plan is to be induced Monday late afternoon/early evening if the hospital isn't full. The doctor I saw yesterday is one of my two favorites at the clinic and he will be on call starting Monday night at 7:00. So that's what we'll shoot for. I have to get the strep B antibiotic and so I'll probably go in a little earlier to get that going, but other than that, that is the plan for now!
Seriously - what IS she doing in there??

I wish I could tell you. 3 inductions later, I have no idea what "going into labor" feels like. My kids just love to hang out in their womb. Good luck!

I was hoping to see that she had come already! I hope she decides to come soon, especially for your sake. Good luck with everything!

I hope being induced goes well for you (if you she doesn't come sooner). I loved being induced...it was so convenient and VERY fast for me! -Jen

I told Ammon that you might be having your baby on his birthday and he was super excited! He would be happy to share his birthday with her so we hope it happens on Monday!

She's just too warm and cozy I guess. Once she's out she's got to share you with her siblings. Maybe she's just smart and taking her time! Good luck with the induction. Jake was my only induction and he came super fast too (we're talking 2 hrs from start to finish!) I'm hoping the same fast & smooth delivery for you!

I was also thinking she would be here. I am home from my trip now so she can come.

She just likes it inside of you! I'm so sorry! Good luck with the induction if she doesn't come before Monday. I can't believe how far along you are though without her making it the rest of the way. Good luck! And enjoy that first meal!
