39 week appointment (xp)

Started my appointment today with an NST, baby was looking good and moved more than normal so they were happy. Dr checked me and baby's head is still high, but I'm 3cm (still) and 75% effaced. He said me cervix is ready for labor and did a membrane sweep (so very uncomfortable!) here's hoping something gets started soon!

He was a bit shocked at the size of my belly and said IF I make it to monday for my next appointment they may consider inducing me. Normally they won't here until 41 weeks but I'm so big they'll consider it. However he really doesn't think I will make it to that appointment Smile I'm hoping between the sweep and tonight's full moon I'll go VERY soon!

Nope still pregnant.... sweep just gave me pain, pressure and contractions for the last 2 days. I have a sinking feeling I will be making my appointment on Monday.... This baby does NOT want to come out!

Decided to try castor oil this morning, nothing so far but I'm hoping it will at least make a bm easier, i've been constipated for days... ugh
