Here we sit...

No baby yet. Membrane stripping obviously didn't work as well as it should have. I have to keep reminding myself (and Dan too) that her due date isn't until Thursday. That's 3 more days until she was even *supposed* to be here. So I'm trying to keep it in perspective. And all along, Dan and I have both said we thought she'd be here on Dec 2, so Sophie still has a chance to help her mom and dad appear psychic:)

But Thursday night and Saturday night I thought were "it." Contractions were strenghtening, Sat morning they were down right painful....but still no dice. We have a dr appt today to discuss what's next. I imagine, unless I've made so much progress that she decides to keep me today, that we'll go with Plan B of scheduling the induction for Friday.

I did have a crazy experience last night, in the midst of my tossing and turning. Sophie tends to be VERY active at night, and last night was no exception. I woke up to a feeling like she was riding a bike in there. Without actually feeling her with my hand, I could feel her feet (or hands maybe) poking out of my side, as in I could feel my skin stretching. So, I took my finger (not whole hand I was too chicken for that), and started poking back, very gingerly, at the spot she was poking. And I felt her foot, sticking out of my side. OMG! I freaked out. I actually ran my finger up and down the bottom of her foot. How CRAZY is that! I could only do it once, b/c I'm such a weenie. That's one of the craziest things I've ever felt.

We got our maternity pics back this weekend from my friend Stephanie. ANy STLers who need pics, I highly recommend her, stephaniecordle.com.

Here are a few that I really like:)
