"well it's 3 o'clock in the mornin'...."

it's really 4 o'clock in the morning...but as i sit here blogging...thinking...itching & contracting i can't help but think of the song...goodnight sweetheart. all i want to do is fall asleep, but after an hour of laying in bed...there's no use in fighting it anymore.

i saw my doc yesterday and since last thurs. i think she was expecting to find that things had moved further along than they have. my cervix is really soft...but not dilated at all. we scheduled to induce on tuesday, july 8th at 3:30...i'm just not sure what i want to do though...since inducing does increase your risk of having a c-section...i'm suddenly finding myself a little more hesitant than i ever thought i'd be about actually doing it.

on top of just being extremely pregnant i have this rash on my feet and hands and it itches SOOOOOO bad. i've tried a couple things to help with the itching...but none of them really work. for the past few nights it's really kept me from sleeping well at all.

i've been having lots of contractions lately...i get to where i'm having them between 6 and 8 minutes a part and then they stop. very frustrating. although last night i was having the strongest contractions i've ever had every 5-6 minutes--things were getting pretty promising and then they stopped. i've been having them through the night every 20-30 minutes. who knows...maybe i'll go into labor on my own before tuesday and all this worrying about inducing will be for nothing. wishful thinking.

how are all of you doing? i miss all of you---
