The Waiting Game

We are playing the waiting game now.  I am only 37 weeks (tomorrow) and was fine just settling in for the next three weeks...until my doctor's appt on Friday.  He checked me and discovered that I am 90% effaced and 3 centimeters dilated!  I know that this shouldn't send me racing for the delivery room or anything, but this news paired with scattered contractions and immense pressure in my pelvis has us feeling downright antsy. Doc says she is healthy and ready so there is no reason she couldn't be here whenever.  I wish I could un-hear that but I can't.  We've gone for walks, eaten spicy food, I've even drank raspberry leaf tea (nasty, nasty stuff).  None of that 'oh, I'll miss feeling her in my tummy' for me.  Nope, I want her out here in my arms.  We are ready!  C'mon Babygirl, show us your scrunchy pink face and gangly legs!  We are ready!  I ate two big bowls of spaghetti tonight.  Maybe that'll force her out.  Does sitting or rolling on a medicine ball really work?....
