I feel like I've been pretty patient so far, but after a week of being at home without a baby I'm starting to get pretty antsy. Today with the rain setting in outside, I was feeling rather depressed and claustrophobic and wondering if this baby would ever decide to arrive on her own. I have been feeling crampy for the past 24 hours, and then around noon I lost some of the mucous plug. This is probably TMI but I haven't been so excited over a vaginal discharge since first seeing egg-white cervical mucous after going off the pill. I immediately called Jeramy, who informed me that labor often starts within 1 to 3 days after losing the plug. Apparently he read that in a magazine. Let's just say that masculine-oriented reading material is severely lacking at the OB's office, and there is a whole lot of time to kill during those non-stress tests. So maybe we'll have a baby this weekend. I'd cross my fingers if they weren't so swollen.
Earlier in the day, I spent some time looking at old baby photos of Jeramy and myself and getting excited over who Jillian might look like. Here are some of the photos of each of us to serve as reference for after she arrives (they really scream the late 70's don't they!).
