Not Too Much Longer Now

I had my 38 week OB appointment today only to discover that I am in labor.  Technically, I'm in slow labor and about 25% there.  That's 25% of the way I need to be before pushing.  I will spare the general public of the exact details (dilation, effacement, etc.).  But, for those who want to know, you can message me and I'll tell you.

The doctor said I've progressed further than most women at this stage.  So, he could come tomorrow or in 2 weeks. There is just no knowing.

I did have a few contractions yesterday.  However, I had about 3 the whole day.  They were VERY spread out.  This can also go on for quite some time.  It's still promising though.  And I was definitely surprised to discover I'd come as far as I had.

Tonight, I've been having some cramping in my lower back and on and off cramping all over.  Contractions and active labor could be soon! There's no way to know until it happens!

In the event that he does come sooner rather than later, I'll provide some stats.  He is now the size of a watermelon.  Granted, watermelon sizes vary quite a lot.  But that is the last fruit.  And his heart rate is a healthy 140 bpm!

So now it's just a guessing game of whether we'll have a June bug or a July baby! ;)
