39 weeks

We are beyond ready for this little monkey to arrive. Went to the doctor Thursday and am dilated to a 2 and 40% effaced. Whoo hoo... After my exam on Thursday I had braxton hicks ALL day... literally 11:30 am till I went to sleep. I told myself if they didn't stop by morning Iwould go in and get checked out, but I woke up and they were gone! Last night at work I starting having them again but this time I was getting what I think were some real contractions. They were low period like cramps and back ache that came and went. This lasted about two hours and wasn't regular though. I'm also having more shooting groin pains/vagina pains... hopefully this means he is making his way down. Tonight will be my last night at work, which I'm totally pumped about! Then it's just a wait game for baby! Doc said they would strip my membranes next Thursday if I still hadn't had him!
