39 week appointment

today i had my 39 week appointment. i am 3 cm dilated, 90% effaced, and the baby is engaged (0 position). the midwife told me that i need to go to the hospital as soon as i feel contractions come on. she also told me the baby is sunny-side-up, meaning back labor. she said the baby can't be turned now because he is already engaged. when i was at the office, i lost some more of my mucus plug too. it's so hard not knowing WHEN things are really going to happen!!! isn't it?

happy halloween!

Happy Halloween to you too!

you're so close! I know what you mean, I was saying that today - if i only i knew what day i'd go into labor! lol, it'd be so good but then at the same time i wouldn't be able to stand the waiting.
awesome that you had a good appointment and baby is getting all ready!

I hope the sunny-side up position doesn't make your labor too difficult. It's almost baby time!

So excited your almost there-keeping you in my thoughts for an easy labor despite the sunny side up predicament.

Good luck....ELV's! I didn't know they couldn't turn yet. Makes sense though. I hope it isnt' too bad for you though.
