As one of the last July due dates, I just had a 36 wk appt, we saw a new doctor because ours is on vacation for two weeks. He did the group B strep swap and a cervical check, I am 2 cm dilated and 50% effaced. We really liked this doctor because he said that the dilation was good and not too common for 36 week first timers, but to still expect to go full term. I liked that he said that because a friend of mine just gave birth and her doctor kept telling her it could happen any day for like 3 weeks before she had her baby. I don't need false hope, I know this baby will come on his own time.
Anyways, I am 98% ready for this baby...diaper bag packed, hospital bag packed, nursery nearly complete(still need to add some family photos to our picture collage), ooooo carseat is being installed by me today(if I can figure it out), I will also be calling pediatricians today, my mom is driving down from WA and should be here tomorrow, and the last big thing we need to purchase is a breast pump(I just haven't decided which one I will need).
And after typing all of that out I actually convinced myself that we are prepared for this new arrival. I cannot wait for this whole pregnancy thing to be over with, my hips and knees are killing me...and my back, and ribs, and need I say more!
