The Doctor Upped the Ante

He did strip my membranes (at my request), said I was now 3cm dilated, and said baby by Sunday. Of course, he's been wrong before...

But they have a sub for me at school (someone I suggested way back in September), and she has a science background, knows the school culture, and will get the job done, even if the kids find her to be a bit more of a hard-ass than I am. Hey, it's good for them.

Took what I hope to be the last pregnancy pictures this morning. I am psyched to have a flat stomach again, BUT I also thought I looked pretty cute, and surprisingly I will miss the belly a little...

I have to look up this stripped membranes thing. It sounds gross whatever it is. I should probably know. You look SO cute. So unfair that your bellybutton never showed itself. I am still praying to mine to stay in there but it won't happen. I'm so excited for you!! Such a relief to have the sub too. Don't spare details of having the baby, I want to know it all!! GOOD LUCK, and know that all of your activity throughout is really going to help!!
