36 Weeks, 2 Days


Still here. Still pregnant. Part of me is interested in how long I will sit at 5 cm. Part of me panics every time I think about it. It's about 11am, and no call from my doctors. With Butterfly's birth, I had the induction scheduled by now. Maybe it's because I am only 36 weeks. It's probably because it's a different office. Boy are they going to be surprised when I walk into their office tomorrow!

My new goal to get to is Wednesday. And if I pass that, then Saturday. I had no more contractions yesterday, and none today. So far. I will update if there is anything else happening today. (Although I'm hoping for a very boring day.)



  1. good luck w/ your boring day :) You're doing a great job w/ those cute lil boys. Are you sleeping ok?

  2. Boring is definitely better than the alternative but I can definitely see how it would be frustrating. :-) I wish there was something I could say about being 5 cm but I was 5 cm when I went to the hospital to be induced and then it took me about 12 hours to get to 10 cm - LOL. Oh well, given your labor with Butterfly I have a strong feeling your labor will be much different. Can't wait to hear more!

  3. This has to be torture for you. I'd be like 'enough already!' Somehow I don't think you'll make it to Saturday. Try to get some sleep in the meantime.

  4. Hang in there girly! You are such an amazing person. I don't know if I could do what you are doing, and doing well for that matter.

    What a cute picture! Hope your boring day is relaxing and you get to have those boys and some chocolate soon!

  6. So, so glad to hear you and the boys are doing so great!!! And, that picture is WONDERFUL! Does Butterfly have any inkling of how close you all are??

  7. It's so hard at the end. I found it so all consuming ... it was all I could think about.

    Hang in there!


  8. Hey?! I checked here earlier,was that picture there before? It's super darling! Keep up the good work, hopefully those boys will cooperate and make their grand appearance.

  9. Love the picture of the 2 of you!! Hope you can get some sleep (that's what I need to do right now...it's late!)

  10. Yeah!! Love seeing make it one day longer!!! Cute cute cute belly!!

  11. Splats- Yes, I am actually sleeping quite well. I am tired by 8pm, and I actually go to bed when I am tired. I think I'm realizing that soon I will have no sleep so I better enjoy it while it lasts.

    Brandy- I didn't know you were 5cm too! We should start a club or something. :)

    Kelly- It is really frustrating, but I do want what's best for the boys.

    Michelle- Oh I bet you could do this if you had to! :)

    Karen- Thanks! Butterfly is cute, although I wish my hair wasn't so long...it seems all I can see in that picture. :) And yes, boys and chocolate...makes me sound like I am back in high school or something. ;)

    Deanna- We've talked about it with Butterfly, but I don't think she quite gets that things are moving rapidly towards delivery. She understands the whole baby thing, but beyond that, I don't know.

    MK- Yes, it is all consuming, isn't it?

    Valinda- Nope, I added the picture later. I thought it was cute.

    Laura- Don't stay up too late! I may have to call you one of these nights. :)

    Jill- The picture was just for you. Check the other blog too. :)
