I went to the doctor today and nothing is happening. No dilation, no effacement, nothing. The heartbeat is strong, the baby is moving well, everything is fine and I still have two weeks until the due date. He told me I needed to have some contractions to get things moving, and the kind I'm having are fake. He said to talk to the baby. Ha! I tried to explain that the baby is not cooperating in that department.
Last night I realized I didn't have a hat for Jack to wear coming home. It's starting to get cold, so he will definitely need something to cover his head outside. I dug up some yarn and made him two hats, one to go with each outfit I'm considering for the ¼ mile drive home. Here they are:
Both outfits look really big though, so I wouldn't be surprised if we just wrapped him up in a blanket.
We go back to the doctor next Wednesday afternoon. Hopefully something will have happened by then - I'll be a week shy of my due date and I really don't want to discuss induction if I don't have to!
