Still here pregnant and all! lol I agree long time waiting . . . : )
Has anyone been told they were effaced or dilated or the baby dropped yet? JW
I am effaced 50%, but no dilation yet. They said at my 36 week appointment that he was in the early stages of being engaged, but they haven't told me anything since. What about you Katie? When is your next appointment? I keep forgetting when are you due? Same day as me or close I think. I'm due April 25th.
So we went in today and the same thing happened with my blood pressure and urine. high blood pressure, went away after I laid down and then a small trace of protein. but no blurry vision or headaches. The doctor didn't have my results for the 24 hour pee test but said she would call me later today to let me know. But as for the blood test, everything was fine and normal. The doctor told me she thinks I am fine and I don't have preeclampsia but that I could still develop it. So she said for me to rest and take it easy, make sure I am eating right and keep my legs propped and again Rest! lol So I will be doing that even though that is what I already have been doing besides trying to waddle around for exercise. (even though its not exercise, just waddling, a nice stroll.) lol
As for baby, he is measuring good. And he is head down. Not dropped yet. She checked me on Wednesday and I am not dilated or effaced but I am softened. So now just waiting and hoping he decides to come before 41 weeks. My next appointment is Tuesday April 16th. Doc wants to keep an eye on my blood pressure. So just hoping I don't develop preeclampsia
And yes Elizabeth , we are very close with our due dates lol Congrats on being effaced 50%!!!!! Not much longer
Sorry about all the appointments. Sounds like a pain. But its good that its not preeclampsia. My blood pressure has been unusually low this whole pregnancy and then at my last appointment it was normal 112/180.
Well at least your little guy is head down and you are softened. Yep, not much longer! Can't wait!
