Weight gain: +10 pounds...okay so it looks like 2 of those pounds from last week were bloat/water weight from flying...I've consistently weighed my self every morning this week and I'm sticking with up 10 pounds, which makes me feel a bit better.

Monday rolled around and we went to the Dr. I was about 2 cm and my midwife 'stripped my membranes' again and we called the hospital to schedule an induction on Thursday morning. The plan was to check into the hospital at 8pm on Wednesday evening where they would apply cervidal to 'ripen my cervix' and then I would start pitocin on Thursday morning. Well...luckily non of this had to happen! After the Dr. on Monday my friend Meghan came over for lunch (we made salad and enchiladas) after lunch I just didn't feel well. My back really started to hurt and I had no energy. That night we just relaxed and watched tv on the couch. I had a few random contractions but nothing strong enough or regular enough to track.
