Contractions for 3 days!!!!

Eli has not arrived yet! He is not only late but I have been having steady contractions for 3 days!!! They have have been semi sparatic and have definitely intensified within the last day. I have gone from having them every 5 minutes, but then it will change to 10 and sometime longer. Yesterday they started to get pretty strong, so at 1:00 in the morning we decided to go in and get checked. I was only dialated at 2 cm and after about 3 hours of them monitoring me, walking around, and having some pretty intense contractions every 5 minutes........I was still only dialated at a 2. So..........we were sent home at 4:30 am with a sleeping pill and hopes that I would be able to come back in very soon! contractions have still been hurting but they go from every 5 to every 10 minutes or so and only last 30-45 seconds......not very promising!!! So we are still playing the waiting game and while waiting I get to be in pain! If I dont' have him by Wednesday the 27th I will be slowly induced in the morning, but I am soooooo hoping that I will be able to go in before then!

We went bowling with our friends George and Rhiannon last Saturday. We have been talking about doing it for a very long time plus I have been trying to get out and do as many things as I can to try and "move things along". Here are some pics.....

Kambria loved her first pair of bowling shoes! (borrowed of course) And I think they looked so cute!!! :)

Mommy, Daddy, and Uncle George helped her get the ball down the lane....slowly....but she did hit some pins!!!

And here is a pic of the comparison between a bowling ball and my prego belly....notice which one is bigger!!!!! The ball was a 12 pounder.....I wonder how close Eli will be in weight????

Does walking really help????? I have been walking so much lately!!!! I have been going to the mall and walking at a pretty good pace trying to move things along, Jon even came with me this morning since he has been working at night lately. I have heard that it is supposed to help, but I know that my cousin's Rachel and April both walked probably more than I have and they were both still late! I am going to keep at it.....but I think that the baby just comes when he/she feels like it! So, does "walking the baby or your body into labor" really work??????? I'm thinking not!

Still waiting!!!!!!!

Well as of my last dr appt this last Wednesday I was still only dialated at 1cm. I know it can take a while to increase from a 1, but I am so ready!!! My due date is still 2 weeks away, which would usually go fast but as of right now seems like another month or two! I am so ready to feel normal again!!!

Update.....Good news!

I went to the doctor yesterday a little anxious, I was going to be finding out the postion of the baby. When I had Kambria I had a C-section because she was breach. This time, I am hoping and praying for a v-back, or a regular delivery. I was very happy when my doctor said that he is "heads down"!!! Plus, I am 1 centimeter dialated, which isn't much, but it is better than nothing. This just means that it is getting closer!!!!!! Our little Eli is almost here!!!! :)
