it seems that whatever i was feeling yesterday was probably related to further effacement, b/c i am now 80% effaced, but still only 1cm dilated. BP looks good, weight is leveling off again (up 1/2 lb this week). the dr. was very encouraging, and still thinks we can make it 9 more days to the scheduled c/s on 4/9.
i have mixed feelings - mostly just gratitude to be where i am, almost full term!! i really did not think i could get this far, and i am SO thankful. it's just that between the sleeping in a recliner and not getting much sleep to begin with, the pubic bone disaster, the now basically dislocated hips, the back pain, the beginnings of what looks like PUPPS, the several-times-daily nosebleeds and coughing up blood... it has sort of caught up to me and part of me was really excited that i might be going into labor yesterday and about to meet my babies!!
BUT. i can do this for 9 more days. i can SO do this... right??
thanks as always for your support ladies. you're the best!!
ETA: i seriously cannot overstate the gratitude i feel at having full term babies (assuming 3 more days, and even if they came today to have gotten this far is amazing the babies' development and growth is by FAR the most important thing to me. the physical crap has all been well worth it!!
