waiting...and waiting... and waiting

Some times I feel like this baby is never going to come! The waiting is killing me, as I am the most impatient person on the planet. 37 weeks today. yet only 1 cm dilated and nothing more than Braxton HIcks. I know, I know, the longer the baby stays inside the better, she can grow, mature, and be healthier when she finally emerges, but come on! Last week they said she was 7 lbs. how much more does she really need to grow? I am supposed to walk to help speed things along, but I am tired, and it hurts to walk, and it hurts to sit. Pretty much everything hurts and aches and my body is ready for her to come out now. Oh, well, maybe this is Hashem's way of teaching me patience.
