More Annoyed than Amused


Posted by parsingtime on June 18, 2010

3 cm dilated and 70% effaced. It doesn’t really mean anything because I could go into labor tomorrow or I could hang out at those numbers for the next week or two but the doctor thinks I will have this baby before my due date (July 1) and that my chances of having a normal vaginal delivery are pretty good.

So, yay to progress.

I am now on the path to give birth…which means spicy food, long walks…whatever it takes for baby to come out soon. In that same vein, I went and got a mani/pedi and got my eyebrows done so that I don’t look like the unibrow spokesperson of America in photos.

It is sort of weird to be waiting around hoping to experience the worst pain you have ever experienced.

    Apparently effacement takes the most time for a first timer. I labored pretty hard at home for 12 hours and was only 4 cm but 100% effaced and the OB told me that arriving at the hospital at 100% was really good. It may not mean labor is imminent, but it is a good head start for the big day. Wishing you a speedy labor. It hurts, but you really do forget the pain. Just try your best to relax and go with it. The more you tense up and fight it the worse it hurts and the slower it goes. So excited for you and Husband!

    I know we just “met” through Xanga and wordpress but I hope I’ll get that email! 😀

    Good luck!

    I can’t wait to meet her (and I can say that because it won’t hurt me a bit)!
