My appt and our decision...

So, last night was my 37 week appt. It went SUPER! 2 great things: 1. doctor feels my belly and says we have a 'little peanut' in there. I'm THRILLED!! Our first was 8.5lbs and I had a hard time with pushing him out. I'm really hoping a smaller baby will be easier! 2. I'm 2cm dilated and 50% effaced!! Which is pretty super, considering I was barely a finger tip last week Smile She said that if I ask nicely at my next appt, the doctor might do a membrane sweep! So, I'm totally excited and I'm pretty hopeful that the sweep will push me into labor like it did with our first.

Now, because of that appointment, we've talked about it, and this week is my last week of work! I've already told my boss that I'll be out starting on Monday, whether or not I'm in labor. Smile I'm pretty super excited! I just hope that we (me and the babes) are ready next week when they do the sweep!

Yay for progress! If you make it that long, hopefully the membrane sweep does the trick!

Lol - I'll take easier...I guess I don't necessarily need easy Smile Anything will be better than pushing for over 2 hours!

Holy moly!!! I thought 8.5 was bad :eek: Well, hopefully this one will be smaller for ya!

I hope so too! I'm looking to see if I can find a yoga ball to borrow for the next week Smile And I'll prolly have to suck it up and dtd again a couple times. Its not appealing to me at this point, but my hubs is all for it!

I know!!! I'm so excited! I've been having some serious BH the past day or so. I'm really hoping to be at least 3cm by my appt on Tuesday!
