And my tonsils are fine, thank you!

Well, the OB appointment today was a bit more interesting than previous ones.

I gained two pounds this week (up to 184...that's 29 pounds gained!). He said the baby had dropped some more, which is good.

He did an internal and I'm 2 cm dialated. Then he stripped my membranes. Great Ouchies, Batman!! We'll see what happens. I've read about ladies giving birth within 24 hours of being stripped and then ladies that have had their membranes stripped twice because nothing happened the first time!

I can say that I've had a few contractions since my appointment and they've gone up on the pain scale from a 2 to a 2.5 (1 is no pain and 10 is HOLY MOTHER!).

And you know that your internal is going swimmingly when the OB says, "I know you have a cervix up here somewhere!" Gah!

I always asked them if they found their car keys yet? I SERIOUSLY hate internal exams.

Can't wait to see what happens in the next few days!! :)
