Who's still pregnant?

I can't believe its only April 10th and I'm having to ask who is still pregnant. I think we preggos are the minority now. All the baby excitement is going to make for a long month for those of us still waiting.

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.

lol wow congrats!!! Im not even effaced yet. I am 38weeks and 3 days. My due date is April 23, 2013. I have actually been super busy with appointments the last three days. I had one Wednesday. When I got there I peed in a cup and the nurse took my blood pressure. It was high which isnt normal for me at all. I normally have extremely low blood pressure and heart rate. So she made me lay down for 10 min and then came back and took it and I was fine. They said they found a small trace of protein in my urine but it was leaning closer to no urine. But just for precaution, they ran some blood test and made me save my pee for 24 hours and return it on Thursday. By the way, it is a pain in the butt. lol They told me to come in again on Friday (today).
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 Sad
And yes Elizabeth :), we are very close with our due dates lol Smile Congrats on being effaced 50%!!!!! Smile Not much longer Smile

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!

Had an appt today, I'm 2 centimeters dilated and 60% effaced. My body is doing everything it needs to do but baby Miles is not doing his part. He apparently is still pretty high up. He hasnt moved down any further down then last week. He's just chillin in there I guess.

Congrats everyone on dilating and effacing! I really hope when I go back for my 39 week appt this upcoming Tuesday that I am dilated and effaced in some way. And hoping that he has dropped.
