31 Weeks

I know I know today is Thursday and my appointment was on Tuesday but hey, I have been lazy! Everything is going okay, I am still only dilated to a 1 WOOHOO! (sorry thats a good thing that I am not dilating farther). I am still having occasional contractions. The midwife that I saw (not my favorite, but due to someone having a baby i had to take her) told me that most likely i have a "sensitive cervix" still need to research that. But I think it means once so much weight is on it, it begins to open? Correct me if I am wrong. But she is doing good, kicking all the time so I am taking that as a sign all is well with the uterus hitchhiker.

I am now also 31 weeks, nine more weeks till I am due. I know that I probably won't be able to make it that long but with each doctor appointment I make it my goal to make it to that appointment. So my goal is keep her in till Friday (tomorrow) that is when my next appointment is. Hopefully my doctor or my mid-wife is there because I really don't like this other one. Don't get me wrong she is really nice but I guess I am stereotyping, I know thats horrible. Lets call her MidWife California Blonde, she has a perfect tan, bleach blonde hair, blue eyes and way to freaking bubbly. So I just don't feel like she knows anything when she is taking care of me and my precious baby. I know I know I shouldn't stereotype, but are you really going to stop me? NOPE (thats what i though :P)

haha... love the fact that you refer to her as the "uterus hitchhiker."

You sound like you have a good attitude about your pregnancy and goals. Every day that you can hold on is better... take a deep breath.. you are almost there!!

Hey Shawnee - thanks so much for leaving that lovely comment at my blog. I am sorry to hear about your problems with the early contractions. I have also been getting contractions, but I think they are the Braxton hicks ones - I get them really frequently and the last few days they are freaking me out.

Oh and that photo from your last post doesn't look bad at all! You look great!!!! You're beautifully pregnant. You should see me! I am all puffed up in the face right now my ex-workmates no longer recognise me on the streets!!

Take care for now, I will keep tabs on you since our babies are so close in age, cross those legs and hopefully your bubby will stay inside as close to term as possible!!
