39 week appointment... nothing exciting.

Nothing new... still 1cm. BP, weight, and HB were fine. She said we'd talk about setting up an induction date next week, and I told her I don't want to be induced at all. She seemed fine with it. I hope that doesn't change when i'm overdue, as I'm sure I will be. I'm still having contractions, but nothing new about them and they're obviously not changing anything.
At this point, I'm mentally prepared for at least another week and a half of pregnancy. At least this weekend is supposed to be nice... maybe I can go swimming, which is something I would be unable to do if I just had a baby (trying to stay positive).

I'm doing the same thing- just trying to enjoy activities I won't be able to after the baby comes.
At least you're feeling well and baby is looking good.

Positive thoughts Smile I would totally go swimming, that's a great idea actually...maybe I'll do the same if this boy decides to go overdue which I think he will.

Were you in a similar dilation pattern with your boys as well?

Yes, it was similar. Cervix was closed and long the morning I went into labor with DS1, and I think I was a 1 or 2 and maybe a little more effaced with DS2 for weeks before I went into labor with him. I should just stop getting checked because for me, it doesn't really mean labor is near. My body just does it when it's time. I always hold out a little hope that I've made a little more progress, just because it's that much less once labor really starts.

Hang in there! I'm sure that were I checked, I'd be the same way. I've never made "progress" before I"m in actual labor.

Enjoy these last few days of pregnancy. I've been swimming a lot and it feels so good! Enjoy!

I'd totally go swimming if I were you! That weightlessness sounds lovely right about now!! Sorry it was uneventful, but hopefully things will get started soon for you!

Uneventful is good! Baby is baking away and will come when ready Smile

With my later pregnancies I haven't bothered getting checked... The information doesn't tell you much. Especially if you've had other babies 1-2 cm could just be a multips os and what it feels like all the time.

Your swimming plans sounds wonderful!!
