37 week appt

Well it is actually 36 and 1/2 weeks but it went well. BP was good, weight was fine and measuring right on doc said. I had my cervix check and I am not dialated at all. I wont be checked again cause I am having a repeat csection. I am happy that there is nothing going on down there becasue I really do not want to go into labor before my date of 39 weeks 1 day. 2 more appts and then comes baby!!!

Glad all is well and that baby is healthy.

I'm surprised that they checked you-- it really doesn't tell them anything (you could go from 0 to labor in a matter of hours-- I did.) Or you could walk around 4cms for weeks....checking just seems like a chance to introduce infection.

Now let the countdown begin! I can't believe we are all getting so close.....amazing to me!

That is what my doc told me when my mother was constantly requesting him to "check" me. He stated that it increases the possibility of infection - never knew! Although, I still would like to know if I am closed up or not...guess time will tell.
