Unfortunately doc didn't say any magic words to me today (i.e. "You're 100% effaced and dilated and ready to push!!!") but I knew she wouldn't. She did seem to think I was progressing some though since I'm now 50% effaced. So that's something at least.
She recommended that I go for long walks. I asked if the 22 miles I've walked in the last 6 days counted for something?
Anyway, I read Gordo's Blog today where he talked about how fit his wife stayed through her pregnancy... that was all cool to read because I could relate in that I'm feeling like I was able to maintain some reasonable level of swimming fitness at least through these last 9 months... but then I made the mistake of continuing reading about her labor and delivery and now maybe I'm changing my mind about wanting to give birth? I like how Allison described hers instead. Quick and easy.
I wonder how I can order Allison's "quick and easy" rather than "watching young people die or seeing people being broken via torture", as Gordo described his wife's labor... Any tips???
Forget it. I changed my mind. I'll just stay pregnant forever.
