appt today!

Had my 36 week check. Bp is 94/55. They always say my Bp is great.... Maybe they should try walking around feeling like they might pass out lol.

Did not check me today. The last I know I am 3-4 cm and 50% effaced. Still contracting every 20 minutes or sobut that has been going on for a month. I'm starting to lose my mucus plug. They are seeing me back in 5 days 'if im still pregnant.' I won't believe it though till I'm actually admitted to L+D!

I can't believe how you and Krystal are walking around dialated to 4!

Contrax every 20 minutes are super annoying when it seems they aren't doing anything. But yours seem to be. Biggrin

I think you'll deliver before me.

I can't believe they didn't check! How frustrating to be walking around, having contractions, losing a mucus plug, and havin to think "Is this it!?!" all day long!! I'd be insane.

I actually don't mind not getting checked. It won't make labor happen any sooner. It set me off with terrible contractions last time, so its okay Smile its just going to be hard to know when I'm in real labor. Friday night I contracted every 10 minutes for 3 hours, then it stopped. It's like the little boy who cried wolf!

Me too! Doctor asked me at my 38-week if I wanted to be checked....I said not unless you think I need to be. I was glad she didn't. I'm not a fan.

Oh Carolyn ~ sorry for your misery, but it's all in good nature....literally. Smile
I hope things continue to progress for you. I can't remember, are you still working?
Just out of curiosity, what does your intuition tell you about when your LO will arrive?

Monday night was my last night of work.

I don't know what my intuition says. Luke came so late that I can't really believe this one will be any different. I don't want to get my hopes up. I wouldn't be shocked if I have 4 more weeks to go. then again, when I was admitted with Luke I really thought they would send me home. I haven't really told anyone in real life because I just dont believe it will happen. I hate to get people excited for nothing! We have a lot of plans this weekend and I have no intent on changing them lol

I hear you on the extra 4 wks. My first girls edd was 01/29 & she was finally induced on 2/13. Every night I would go to sleep thinking, "tonight is the night." I would wake up so frustrated the next morning. She showed no signs of planning on coming on her own though.

Did Luke show any signs like this LO? I don't think you will make it another 4 wks, but hopefully through the w/end if that's what you want.

Luke showed no signs of coming! I am amazed how different these pregnancies have been. I didn't have a single contraction till I was in labor, not even a BH! At my 40 week appt my cervix was so high and posterior they couldn't even reach it to check.

My only intuition about this time is that once it starts it will be really fast! Luke took 12 hours from first contraction till delivery. I am excited to get going here!

Wow! It sounds like things are really happening...yet not, of course. I hope things truly get going for you soon and you're not in for another four weeks of frustration!

I feel you Carolyn! I can't believe I'm dilated to 4CM... but you seem to have much more action going on than I do! I'm not contracting at all (at least not that I can feel) and have not lost any of my plug. I'm thinking you'll deliver before me!
