Good News/Bad News

I should totally be in bed right now, but I'll give you all a quick baby update. I had a good check up with the doctor tonight. The good news is that I'm three centimeters dialated. So these contractions I've been having on and off are actually doing a little something. I've been having contractions about every 10 min. for the last 5 hours, but they aren't increasing in intensity or getting closer together, so I'm not really getting my hopes up yet. I just hope I'll be able to sleep well tonight. The bad news is that this little girl will not get into position and stay there. She is face up again, which means a harder and longer delivery. My parents are coming to visit this weekend, so it would be the perfect time to head to the hospital. I'm praying that it will happen in the next day or so, but in the back of my mind I do realize who is really in control. I know that God's timing (not mine) is perfect. I'm just so impatient!

Yeah!!! That is so exciting that you are on the upside of almost halfway done! We're saying lots of prayers that she flips around soon. Unfortunately, you should probably get used to the drama of those little girls!!! Take care.

Youa re getting there, girl!!! It always made me feel better to know that the contractions were being useful and accomplishing something!!! Don't stress too much about her being face up. Jacob was face up and his labor was quicker than Josiah's....we didn't even know he was face up until delivery...It wasn't that much of a big deal...Get some rest while you can, Judy!!!
