Last night Dave ran out and got pie for us as a last kicking up of the heels in the name of pregnancy cravings. Sophia, and I don’t know how, figured out that we had pie without her after she went to bed. I got the serious evil eye this morning and a firm scolding. […]
I would like to play my “no contractions if we’re not really giving birth yet” card, please. I just don’t think it’s fair to drop onto an endcap shelf in the grocery store, huffing and panting, unless it’s GOING SOMEWHERE. I want to be able to go for a walk so badly. It’s really lonely […]
Dave and I went to the doctor today and we’re at 1 centimeter. Not much, but at least we’re coasting downhill! She told me they could strip my membranes and get me rolling now, but I told her we have to wait until after Sunday. No way I could mess up Sophia’s birthday party. All […]

I’m 36 weeks this coming Thursday but I spent the whole day working from home, laptop next to me on the couch, feeling very crampy. I figured it was just Braxton Hicks, but by this evening things started wincing up in semi-regular intervals. Right now I’m having contractions about every 17-20 minutes. Really big window, […]
