Well at our last appointment, I was dilated 2 centimeters. Luca is dropped, head down, and ready! I've been having some contractions. Every night, they start up and range from 3-10 minutes and I keep thinking they will continue and become more regular. They do become more frequent and stronger everyday, but we haven't made it over the hump yet into active labor. On a side note...do we think this baby could grow any lower?!? :)
I've heard a lot of people compare the way their child entered the world to their current personalities. For example, babies that come late are still showing up late to everything as adults. I can say this is very true for Ella...she is super compliant with a little bit of prompting and some bribery to boot every now and then. She wasn't coming out on her own but with a little prompting from the pitocin, she said, "OK FINE PEOPLE" and she was out in 5 1/2 hours start to finish! So what have I learned about Luca so far? Luca is going to be a BIG TEASE!!! So typical of men ;) We go back to the doctor on Monday to find out what kind of progress we've made. We may just hang out in early labor for a while or he may come tomorrow. Only Luca knows!
