Baby Watch 2008

My sister's baby is due on Friday. Last Wednesday her blood pressure was kind of high so they stripped her membranes to try to get labor going.

The baby laughed....

So she went back to work and she walked and walked and walked....

The baby laughed....

So Sunday night she bounced on the exercise ball hoping to get things moving along.....

The baby got pissed off and punched her in the back starting about 3:00 AM. She contracted every 25 minutes or so and the back pain was pretty constant. Just enough to keep her awake but not enough to actually be considered labor.

So she got up and went to run errands and do more walking...

The contractions stopped and the baby laughed....

So this morning she had a doctor's appointment. 3 cm dialated and they stripped her membranes again. If nothing happens she will be induced on Thursday....

EEEeee!! Baby by this weekend!!
