38 Week Check Up

This morning starting at about 4:30am I started having really strong contractions. Unfortunately they were not quite regular or even really timable. They seemed to be right on top of one another for an hour, then they tapered off until they finally faded away. Much to my dismay, it wasn't true labor. We went for a walk, then around noon the contractions came back. Just as strong and OH! Soooooo painful! But again, they tapered off and went away. This afternoon we saw Dr. Flora for a check up. She said I am 1 cm dilated and for me to call her when the contractions are regular, timable and close together. So maybe they will not come back for a while...or maybe...we will have a little baby sooner than we thought!

Stay tooned for an update.

Love you all,

Eric and Lindsay

  1. Hey Lindsay,so good to hear from you. I love the blog! Such a great way to keep in touch with people. All of the pregnancy stuff and contractions will be all worth it when you feast your eyes on that little one. I still remember balling my eyes out when my kids were born. It's so amazing how God created us. I'm still in "awe" today and everyday when I pick them up after work. As an OB nurse, your contractions will continue to get worse....then that's true labor!!! Or if your water breaks before then:) Those Braxton-Hicks are mean cause we think it's the start to something,,, and then they go away! Little buggers! Anyway, just thought I would send a quick note. Keep in touch!
    Love Terri
