Checking in

I wish the title meant 'checking into the hospital' but not yet. Easter was a nice albeit lonely day. David and I decided to do a good 4 mile walk to see if it gets things moving. So we did some errands downtown and walked home through the Central Park. It was chilly but a very beautiful, quiet day.

Yesterday was also a good day. I had mild contractions in the morning which progressed to a whopping 25 seconds each at exactly every 5 minutes for a few hours! It's amazing how precise the timing was. I layed down to see if I could nap and I guess I fell asleep because I woke up about 45 min later and the contractions had stopped. But yesterday evening they started up again and David and I took a 3 mile walk and stopped for dinner. By the time we walked home they were starting up again about 8 minutes apart, and continued until I layed down to go to sleep : (

So I'm here now waiting, hoping, they start up again soon. We have a Dr appointment this afternoon and we are just really hoping there is some real progress this time. It's all very exciting. Wish us luck!

Thanks Irene. Getting nervous!

Just came back from Dr. Cervix soft but no dialation/effacement yet. We will walk again tonight to see if it helps.
