I'm happier now...

I'm still pregnant. I'm not as irritated as I was last week. I think I was just sick of waiting last week. This week, my parents are in town, and I just have a better outlook in general. I had an appointment on Friday and the midwife informed me that I'm 80% effaced and dilated to 3cm. I know that all of this false labor (another big bout on Saturday night, 4.5-5 min apart for 5-6 hours with pain and another shorter session this morning) is just getting me ready for "the real deal" and I can't change what's going to happen, or when it's going to happen. So, I'm at peace with that. 

It's good to have my family in town, even if I don't get to go out and do all the super fun stuff with them. It's just nice to have others around while I sit and wait. 

39w even!

I can't imagine how hard it would be to just wait and wait and wait! Sounds like your body is definitely getting closer to being ready!

De-lurking to wish you luck and send you some labor dust! I've been reading your blog for a while but have never commented. :)
