Well, I've officially reached my due date today and this little girl needs to get going asap! I'm still feeling ok, but it's stressful not knowing if I should try to work or not. So far I've sat at home all weekend waiting and the only laboring I've done is baking all kinds of goodies and delivering them to all my friends. I had 5 hours of contractions on Saturday night and 5 hours on Sunday night. My appointment was this morning and I'm 80-90% effaced and 2cm. My doctor seemed to be pleased, she said my cervix thinned about an entire cm from last week to this week which she said is really good progress. She said I could opt to be induced, but I'm really hoping it won't come to that. The work issue is a problem. I am basically sitting and using paid leave this week, not knowing when I'll go into labor. I guess I feel like if I'm having contractions it's better to be at home, but I don't really want to lose a whole week of work, so I may sign up to work some hours tomorrow, but I'm yet undecided. I've had more contractions today, 3 hours so far...but I'm skeptical as to whether or not it's just braxton hix again. They aren't any stronger than they have been and nothing that really takes my breath away. It's hard because if I go to work, I'm a nurse and you can't really sit down if you're needing rest, we put our patient's first and I don't know if I can really do that at this point. I'm torn on what to do, so for now I'm surrounded by cupcakes and cookies that I've been baking the past 3 days and that's the only laboring I'm doing!
