Small Window to my sad little World

Here it is...

Status: still pregnant, off all meds, still contracting, mostly miserable, no cervical changes, no active labor, no idea when anything will happen.

Location: still in the big stupid ugly hospital.

Weight gain: loss, actually. total gain is now about 16.5 lbs.

Attitude: depends on the time of the day and how close / strong contractions are.

Baby: looks great. she is happy as a clam. HR is awesome. reactivity is great. no issues at all.

Appetite: varies day to day / throughout the day. not much of one. supplementing overall diet with Ensure for weight gain / weight maintenance.

View: a brick wall, some tree tops, a roof top, and lots of air conditioning and mechanical equipment.

General info: desperately miss my husband, my dog, my house, my bed, driving a car, being outside...and so much more.

Prediction: I will never go into real labor. I will never dilate to 5 cm. I will never have my water break. I will contract for the next 40 years. Finnley will be the first baby to ever actually fully grow up in her mother's womb. Murphy will be laughing wherever it is that he hides out and does evil things to people while working up new tortuous "laws".

Oh girl- sorry your spirits are suffering from those ever-shrinking hospital walls :( You are sooooo close- you are going to be holding, nursing and loving your baby girl before you know it! You are on the verge of the most amazing moment of your life!

Have you started those jumping jacks, lunges and squats we were talking about? Make it through tonight's sales close and then get jumping...

We're thinking about you and hoping she

Here's our picture webpage to pass 7 or 8 minutes of your endless time:

If you scroll down to Lila's almbum, you can see the inside of Virtua's OR where you will soon be visiting :)

Thanks, Rachel. Yep..."must get through the close". ha! My cousin keeps telling me to do jumping jacks. I am almost willing to do them...if it didn't hurt to do so. I found some info on acupressure points to induce labor, so maybe that is worth a shot, too! ha! I will have to check out your photos later on. Thanks for sharing! - Megan
