    Hi Girls!

    Lizz- I started getting lower back pain about a month ago. Some days it's worse than others. At this point everyday it's bad though. My doctor said it's normal, just make sure that the pain is not coming in intervals because it could be contractions. I would mention it to your doc for sure at your next appt.

    Lisa- I'm so glad that you got some good rest this weekend! I was starting to get worried about you and Luke! Can't wait for your update after your appt. tomorrow!

    Mo- Thanks for checking up on me. :-) Since yesterday at 5am I've been having what I think are BH that are about 13-20 minutes apart. Sometimes they stop though for a while then start up. So I'm hoping/praying they are doing something. The bad thing for me is I'm at the point is that the BH are so uncomfortable and sometimes painful that I really don't know if they are "real" contractions or BH. Now, I'm scared I won't know if labor is actually starting. :-( I guess, I will find out tomorrow if I'm dilated if they were real.

    Martha- I just wanted to tell you again, Good Luck tomorrow! I am so excited to see pics of Noah! Try and get some rest tonight! I know that will probably be hard!

      Karma - I bet all the BH you've had, you probably have some activity going on down there. I have the same fear that I'm not going to know what the real contractions are. But something tells me our body will definitely let us know. So you go to the doc tomorrow as well?? So exciting!! I love going to the doc every week.

        I had BH contractions and they were painful, but trust me they are nothing like the real thing. You will know without a doubt when its the real thing.

        I had a lot of BH, A LOT, and for me, it didn't cause me to dilate or for Ella to drop at all. My water broke because my body was ready to be done being pregnant, but Ella did not drop and I was not contracting because she was not ready to be here. So the BH did nothing for me, it was painful and annoying, but that was all. I hope more than anything that its not the same for all you lady's, I was so sad when my water broke and I found out I was not dilated at all. My water broke 15 days early, but I needed to be induced because I was not dilating on my own.

          Hi Girls!

          I just got back from my appointment and the good news is that I am 2 1/2 cm dilated!!!

          So, my Dr. will go ahead and induce me next week! Hannah will be here on Wednesday, Nov 5!!!!

          I'm so excited and nervous at the same time. I'm sure it will sink in more this weekend.

              Thanks, that is totally what I am afraid of now though. LOL!! We are inducing for schedule reasons, since my DH owns his own business and has to be there by law. Now, my mom is thinking about flying in, too.

              Oh, I just noticed your Anniversary is today! Happy Anniversary!!!!

                      When is your mom coming in?

                      I'm keeping my fingers crossed for you! If not, start having sex every night. That's what Steve and I did. It was MISERABLE for me, but it looks like it did the trick so it was worth it!

                      If my mom can come she will come on Tuesday. It's totally last minute, so we are not sure she will be able to make it, but it would be such a huge help for us!

                      Can't wait to here your update!

                      Thanks, Mo! How did your appt. go today? Did you do the GD test?
