Pregnancy Update: 38 Weeks Pregnant and Stuck in Early Labor

Good afternoon and happy Saturday! Today I am 38 weeks pregnant and we are counting down the days until we meet our little baby angel. I have been in early labor since Monday =) our little angel is indecisive on whether she is ready to come meet us or snuggle in mama bears tummy for a little while longer. This is a completely new experience for me as my labor with Paul was 13 hours from early labor to birth. With baby girl, I was a half centimeter dilated as of Monday when I saw my doctor for my weekly appointment; 2 centimeters dilated as of Wednesday after I saw my doctor again because I had some blood; and after contracting for days, I was still 2 centimeters dilated as of Saturday. I am having contractions every 5 to 15 minutes; and the duration and pain vary. During the last few weeks, baby girl has been super active all the time, and I love feeling her fetal movement! I treasure every roll, stretch, punch, kick, and hiccup. I am someone who loves to be pregnant, even with the difficulties that this pregnancy presented me with. The process is so beautiful and I love to enjoy every minute of the short 9 months. I am so excited to progress into active labor and finally meet our baby bear =)
