It went really well. BP is 111/62, and weight is up 4 whole pounds to 129! I can't believe I gained 4lbs in a week and a half. Belly measured at 35 weeks, the baby was way up in my chest. HR was good but I don't know what it was. He went ahead and did the GB swab while he was down there and my cervix hasn't changed, still 1cm and not effaced. It is weird to me, I was a fingertip dilated at 36 weeks and 1cm at 39 weeks. So being 1cm already is like wow, how much further is dilation going to go before actual labor?
So, no more dtd until I'm term but otherwise I can do normal life. yay for a good visit! I don't see a midwife now until 36 weeks since the dr did a full exam.
So glad you to hear you had a good follow-up appt. and no bed rest.

I was in L&D on Monday with contractions and I'm already dilated 1 cm and 70% effaced so now I'm on strict bedrest. I know how you feel though. I'm wondering how much longer I will be able to go! Great news that nothing has changed and yay for no bedrest!!

Glad everything looks good! From what I've heard it's pretty normal for BTDT moms to have a slightly open cervix (fingertip). (and Jennifer if it makes you feel better I was 2cm/80% at my appt 2 weeks ago today and I'm still pregnant! They did have to stop labor last week but I've been doing good since) I have heard of women who walk around at 4/5cm a while before labor starts that'd probably freak me out
