38 weeks

38 weeks today...and I can't even get excited. =/ All I can say is prodromal labor SUCKS! Come on, Valerie, let's get the real show on the road here! Everyday, like clockwork, contractions wake me up at 5am, stay consistent at 10-15 minutes apart, sometimes getting down to 7 minutes apart, and then about 7pm, everything just stops. It has been like this for 5 days now, everyday without fail. Before that, it was like that maybe every 3 days. Urgh. It is so exhausting and it makes it really hard to get anything done. The contractions are strong enough they make it hard to breathe, let alone move. I am so ready for her to be born that I am actually looking forward to real labor. lol. We do have a game plan, though, in case Valerie proves to be as stubborn as her brothers. If I am still pregnant come my ob appointment Thursday, I am going to schedule an induction for next Tuesday, which is 39 weeks for me. My doctor has hinted at that anyway, due to my GD. My numbers lately have been high, even though I am eating the same things I was when they were where they were supposed to be, so she may even decide to induce a little earlier than next Tuesday. (We're concerned about a big baby.)

Come on out, Valerie! You can't stay in there forever!

I can only imagine how frustrating this is for you! But luckily there is light at the end of the tunnel. Hopefully they will induce soon!

That's what my husband said yesterday when I told him about it. Lol. He still thinks I'll go into actual labor before my appointment, but at this point, I am doubting it. I'm just hoping to hear about some progress from it all.

Sorry about the contractions but look on the bright side, at least you know exactly when you're going to have them, haha. Can't believe you are 38 weeks! I'm so jealous, lol. Can't wait to hear about your appointment on Thursday (assuming you haven't had Valerie before then) :).
