Why are pregnancies so long? I know it's going to happen but this is doing a mental job on me. Last Wednesday my doctor told me I was at a 3 and that I probably wouldn't last much longer. Why would she tell me that? Now every little contraction I feel I start to think, ok this is it. It is torture. It's even worse because the boys and I are stuck indoors because it's like 15 degrees outside. If I lived in the promised land (California...duh) I could at least be outside letting them run wild. We spend 14 hours of our day playing "polar bear" or "dinosaur". HELP ME.
