Tuesday Appointments :)

My 40 week appointment was pretty much the same as ALL of my others...BP good, baby sounds good, and no progress really to speak of...still about 1 cm. After talking over my last 2 deliveries, he thinks my body just needs a little push to get going (I had a super fast induction last time considering I started at 1 cm for that one too). He gave me the option of Thursday or beginning of next week and I'll admit I weighed my options pretty quickly and picked Thursday simply because that means I get DH's help all weekend when we come home rather than coming home midweek and having way less help - I feel like if we're going to schedule, let's go for convenience since I'm overdue at this point anyway. Maybe not the right choice for everyone but I feel good about it and no matter what, we'll be meeting baby by the end of the week whether he chooses to surprise us and come on his own or if we have to kick him out!

How did our other Tuesday appointments go??

Just got back from mine. BP good, urine good, weight same as last week.

2 cm dilated Smile but cervix is still very posterior and quite thick. He said he could manage to get 2 fingers in there though. So really....could be tomorrow, could be not until Sunday.

At this point I think I'd rather just wait for my mom to get here Saturday at noon, and THEN go into labour. Then I don't have to find someone else to watch my kids, especially with Emerson in a cast.

It'll be a baby week/weekend for at least a couple of us then!

Sandra: 2 cm?! WOOHOO! Even if you still go until your induction at least your body is trying to make things happen Wink I'd be doing a happy dance if my body got to 2 on it's own LOL

Awesome appointments!

Ashley, I don't blame you at all. Even though I'm already at 2cm this early I won't be surprised if I need just a little bit of pitocin to kick up the contractions. I'd rather not but I know my body needed it in the past so I am open to the idea. Seems like my body needs a little kick to get those contractions into any kinda of rhythm. So excited that you have a date!!!

Sandra, I hope baby waits for this weekend for you. I'd much rather have a weekend baby too (for different reasons!) so I hope this kiddo cooperates! And yea for getting to 2cm without being in labor. Woohoo!

Not dilated yet but she said im softening. my blood pressure was a little to high for my liking 134/82 im usually 102/64 so she took some blood work, she said my legs and feet are slightly swollen but nothing to be concerned about. Heartbeat was 182

Ashley, I definitely would have picked Thursday if I were you too! Smile

Sandra, great progress.

I had an appointment too. Not much to report. All about the same as last week. Weight hasn't changed. BP good. Still about 3-4 cm dilated. Baby's heart rate was in the 140s. Still just waiting.
