37 Weeks and 5 days

Still pregnant!

Weight: 173.5
Dialated: 6cm
Effaced: 80%

I asked her to check me, she wasn't going to but I thought I would be too curious later. I was nervous that I would be disappointed. I did dialate another cm, but she had a really hard time saying what she thought it was because the baby's head is right there. She was trying to measure around the baby's head to see how dialated I am. She said this baby is going to slip right out and I shouldn't even push.

I am a little nervous since I am not in labor and so dialated. She said to call them when I am having contractions 10 minutes apart. How does she know that I will even have contractions? I haven't yet. And she implied that we should be pretty speedy about getting to the hospital or we might be delivering at home. If the baby comes at home, we just need towels and then wait for the ambulance to come, right? There is a fire station like 2 blocks from our house, so they would probably arrive first. Aaaaaaagggggghhhhhhhh. Just the unknowns of delivering a baby drives me crazy.

We are planning on going walking at the mall tonight to see if we can get things going. I feel so nervous for this baby to come. I want to live my life normally and go places like always, and then wonder if that is foolish because this baby might just slip right out. But at the same time, I could walk around like this for another 2 weeks. I wish they would induce me. Just break my water.
