Hows the sleep? Starting to suck! I'm up several times a night now between peeing and being uncomfortable!

Best moment this week? Contractions! Feel like we're moving forward towards the end now!
Movement? He was really active last night after I was done having the contractions!

Food cravings? soft ice cream, it's all I can think about!

Belly button, in or out? OUT!

Other updates?

Had my weekly appointment today. Baby boy is in perfect position, I'm measuring 2 weeks behind (which means he's dropping and my tummy is shrinking), and I'm a fingertip to 1cm dilated. All things are progressing in the right direction. My Dr. was going to strip my membranes today but she couldn't quite get there with how much I'm dilated, so we'll try next week as long as I'm a little more dilated! Her words were, "Looks like you've got at least another week ahead of you, but I've learned NEVER to trust second babies! You can be barely dilated in the morning and be in Labor and Delivery that night!".

I'm certainly having some cramping from the cervical check today and I had a good hour+ of contractions last night, so progress is certainly happening! I don't want to rush him along or anything but I am ready to be done being pregnant! I'm sure just about every pregnant lady has said that at one time or another!
