In the home stretch! I am 2 cm dilated, 60% effaced. BP 110/72. Sam's heartbeat was a little faster this time, in the 150s. She didn't tell me last week how effaced I was, but she said I was thinner now than I was before.

I decided to go ahead and ask abotu my birth control options, since I prolly won't have insurance after my 6 weeks postpartum. I'm seriously considering getting the Mirena IUD. The only thing I'm really worried about is, she said they normally don't put them in at your 6 week checkup, b/c the uterus isn't as contracted down as they would like, and it's more likely to perforate your uterus. But since I won't have insurance after then, she told me that when I'm about 5 weeks PP, to go in to the insurance department and tell them to order it for me so I can have it put in then. Plus, it's good for 5 years so that'll work out nicely...I can always have it taken out if Jerm decides to still get snipped.

I hope Sam doesn't stay in too much longer...I'm so ready to hold my sweet baby boy! And, I can't wait to be nursing another baby again...I still sometimes miss that with Issac, although he shows no signs that he does!

Have a great day!

I have my fingers crossed for you that it will be soon. They gave me something to shrink my uterus in the hospital. Also breastfeeding is supposed to help too. I hope they can put in your IUD at your 5 week appointment.
