Oh and we got the last two items we really needed for the baby - a stroller and a high chair! Thanks to all the ladies at HRM for your thoughtfulness.

38 Weeks and Counting
I had my 38 week check-up yesterday. I'm still dilated to 2cm - so no progress there. But, during the middle of the exam (without warning) the doctor decided to strip my membranes. HOLY COW does that hurt! She said she wanted to get the process moving a little faster. She also decided to stretch out my cervix a little bit while she was in there. (Sorry men, if you're reading this, I should have warned you long ago.) Needless to say, I was just a little sore after my appointment - and I had a baby shower to go to right afterwards. Yuck! I rewarded myself last night with a Tylenol PM (yes, the doctor said it was ok) and enjoyed the best night's rest I've had in weeks. I feel pretty good today - but unfortunately don't have any signs of labor.
