We went to our 39 week and 3 day doctor visit today. I was hoping for at LEAST another centimeter dilated. Well, no such luck. We are still at 3 centimeters dilated, 80% efaced and Brooke is at the -1 station. BOOOOOO!!! The doctor did scratch my membranes, which pretty much meant "tried to losen the plug" a bit. He said that will sometimes push a woman into labor within 24 hours. However, here I sit, at our computer desk almost 7 hours later and I seem to have less contractions than before he did that. He did say that at our next appointment he will be more agressive...whatever that means! I really hope I don't make it til my next appointment, but I suppose that is up to Brooke and my uterus. I keep telling myself, the more time she takes to come out, the more time I have off work, so that is a plus.
Hi, my name is Leanne. I am a proud mother of 3....Carlie, Josh and Brooke. I am married to an amazing man, Mark. We have a dog, Lucy. I have a "planning" addiction. I love to plan parties, meetings, vacations, etc. I love to organize things, make lists and vaccuum. I love having a crazy and hectic life. I love loading everyone in the car and going to soccer games, baseball games or just the grocery store. I believe in God. I need to go to church more often. I recently discovered I love to run. I love sleeping in. I love making people happy. I love talking in front of large crowds. I love to give. I love my job. I love my life. I have been through a lot in my life. I have experienced being a young mom, divorce, being a single mom, dating, re-marrying, having a baby in my 30's, buying a house, renting an apartment, kidney stones, mastitis..and much more. I am always more than happy to talk to anyone about everything and anything. I don't get embarassed very easily and it's pretty darn hard to offend me.
