So we had our 38 w 2 d appointment yesterday and it went fabulously. I couldn't have written it better myself to be honest.
BP is 124/88 - which is pretty stinkin' rad if you ask me. No protein in urine, no swelling, still no headaches, and I'm up to 2cm dilated and my cervix is still softening - it's still thick, but at least it's softening.
He talked about inducing us today (Wenesday) or if we haven't had Ava by next Wendesday the 19th he'll induce me that evening. Well, as is standard apparentenly we held him back on the induction for this week - yet again... he just smiles now every time I start saying "okay... so you're okay with us just waiting until Friday's/ Tuesday's appointment then." DH said Doc is going to knock us over the head soon and just drag us to the hospital
Because my bp is rather weird - I'll go ahead and agree with him - he's noT wanting me to go past my due date of the 23rd... I'm fine with that. As long as we fight to keep her in there as close to her due date as possible we're cool.
So on Friday I have another appointment. He had mentioned he could induce me then - but I'm selfish and Saturday the 15th is my 31st birthday... and from personal experience I've seen what happens when parents and kids share birthdays - no thank you. It's like having a Christmas birthday and some of your relatives combine the 2 occasions... we're good.
So as we're making our Friday appointment with the front desk she asks and what time on Tuesday will be good for you
Our doc knows us so well. But the funny thing is the 3 ladies who work with our doc (he's a sole practitioner) all said they didn't think we'd make it to the Tuesday appointment.
Wishful thinking or women's intuition?
So we've had a great week. I swear not being at work is doing wonders for me. Now if I could just comb my hair...

Wow - things sound great - I agree that BP is freaking awesome. I hope you are able to aviod induction!
Congrats on the great appointment! I love how you sidestep your doc, too. Good for you!
I am also glad you are enjoying being home. It won't be long now!
good news !!!! I am so happy your BP went down.....
My OB is like your he will want to induce me but the next time I see him will be my Due Date and then I wil, tell him let's wait few days.... he may knock me in the head and drag me to the hospital too
but we will see.....
I hope your baby shows up before you are to wrestle with your doctor
At my appt yesterday doc said I had lost a pound and baby was measuring smaller... which means she's moved down. I just shrugged my shoulders and said "okay."
Well dh is (in his own words) "fully commited to helping get Ava out without medical induction..." yep. Those natural prostaglandins. Then this morning I had errands to run and I SWEAR this baby got heavier overnight, or she's really sitting much lower than she ever has. I had to lean on the counter to checkout while I was at Target today - oy!
Yay for being lower.
I remember Logan feeling heavier in the last week, but it was only after my OB told me he felt to be around 8-10lbs! Needless to say I felt really uncomfy after that, lol.
