YAY!! Finally some good news, I'm 2cm and 50% effaced as of yesterday afternoon. The doctor thinks it might be a few more days since this is my second. Oh that totally made my day after feeling like junk all day and then having a co-worker complain about me talking too much. The OB also said that if I don't have the baby by my next appointment, he'll set a date for induction due to my past history for tough labor and hemmoraging. So yeah, the appointment made my day.

Tonight I'm going to try some old wives tales to kick this labor into motion. I'm sooo ready to be a mommy again and not a pregnant lady anymore. Everything is ready for baby, now it's just more waiting.

Take a long fast paced walk, it will speed up things, did it for me with my last one while I had about the same thing going on. I went into labor same night, of course it may have been a coincidence too. Good luck! Can't wait to read your birth story! Wish you an easy one this time!
