The big news (<--sarcasm) - I've dilated one half of a centimeter since last week. Like, 0.5 cm. So for those of you who speak the language of labor, I'm now 2 cm, 80% effaced, and Declan's at a -2 station.
The doctor seemed optimistic that it would happen soon, but I think she's forgotten that it's taken me TEN WEEKS to dilate HALF a centimeter. So I went to Wheatsville and got some Evening Primrose Oil and a box of raspberry tea. Neither actually induce labor, but the EPO is supposed to help the cervix soften, and raspberry tea tones the uterus for contractions and makes labor easier when it does happen.
I'm walking a couple of miles every night, and today in the shower, I held on to the soap-holder and did a bunch of squats. Even if all of this doesn't make me give birth, I'm getting fit!
In other news, we moved the bassinet so that it's beside the bed... I forgot, and totally ate it trying to get out of bed for bathroom break #1 last night. Oops! Everyone is fine, I just have a bruised shin.
