38 week appt

Just got back from my 38 week appt. Been having minor contractions for the last 36 or so hours, so dr checked me ... I'm 2-3, still quite postierior, but start to efface and very soft. Gillian's head is very low, although she didn't tell me a station. Bp is still good, and so is Gillian's heart rate. I'm thinking it's quite a good thing that my in-laws will be getting into town tomorrow (they are who will be watching dd during labor).

So exciting! Smile When was your dd born? Did they check you this early?

dd was born at 38+2 via induction, and my cervix was in the exact same condition, with 5 hours between when they started the pitocin and delivery.

perfect timing for the inlaws to be coming in. Maybe you'll make it to Saturday for an October birthdate!
