38 week appointment coming up

It's at 11:45 eastern.

Im expecting it to be uneventful. I have to take the kids so I may decline being checked, although several people have told me if I'm dilated to 4, he'd probably do a sweep which would hopefully be what I need to move things along. I can't decide. All I know is its 3am and I'm wide awake because of flipping contractions again. Ugh!!!!!!

my friend who is due a day ahead of me and goes to the same dr has the 11:15 appointment. She said if she's out before I go in, she will sit with my kids while I am in. So maybe that'll work out.

Hope the appt goes well and your friend is able to watch the kiddos and you get to have the sweep done! Hope you also got some sleep!

I'd make sure to get checked if I were you! I had my kiddos with me at every appointment, and I just had the older ones up by my head (or busy with the younger ones) when I was checked. It's always quick and you have the blanket to cover you anyway. Even if you are a 3 I don't see why they wouldn't give you a sweep at this point, so I would definitely get checked. Smile Of course if your friend can watch them - even better!

Good Luck today. I know how hard this pregnancy has been on you. I hope they can do the sweep. Even if a nurse watches the kids for a minute.

4cm.

When I hit this point with Lucas, it was at 12:15am. He was born at 12:49am.

Its seriously hard to fathom that I am just strolling around like this.

So, did they sweep??? Even if they didn't, just messing around to check you might start something!! Anyway, I can tell you from my experience, that third baby can be QUITE a bit different.
