32 Weeks

He's got the hiccups. I'd forgotten about this part.

With D, hiccups were annoying. She invariably had them when the nurses were trying to get an hour of contraction and fetal monitoring data for my chart. It would add 20 to 30 minuites to a process that was already occupying about a third of my waking time every day and required me to lay very still in exactly a certain position and made my back, already unhappy from weeks in bed, even crankier.

This time, it's just hiccups. My belly has the hiccups. 32 weeks. Wow.

Cervix holding strong. Dr. Favorite mentioned the words "induction at 39 weeks if you're feeling really uncomfortable" at my appointment last week. Induction! Me!? Hmph.

I am so incredibly fortunate.

Haha...I'd forgotten about hiccups too and she's only 16 months old. She actually gets hiccups quite regularly now, which is funny.

Also, way to go strong cervix! Woo hoo!

Glad things are going so well!

What great news. With Baby A, the hiccups continued after he was born. As far as dealing with 2, I'm trying just to take it one day at a time. (It worked when he was on the inside, so I'm hoping it will work now.)

Sod's law does dictate that you'll go overdue and need to be induced with a history of ptl. The universe has a real sense of humour about these things,
