What a cheesy smile!! He was so pumped!
Yesterday Jamie and I headed to my OB for my 36 week appointment. After waiting an HOUR in the waiting room (I always end up with appointments with the dang on-call docs!) we finally went back. My blood pressure is great - 110 over 64, baby's heartbeat is perfect - in the high 130's (doc tor says it starts lowering in the final weeks/days of pregnancy because the baby isn't able to move around quite as much ... I didn't know that) and I'm measuring perfect for 36 weeks. The exam showed that I am about 1.5cm dilated and 60% effaced ... so not A LOT of progress, but better than nothing! With the pain and weirdness I've been feeling lately, I thought I might be dilated more, but no.
We also discussed the possibility of induction at 39 weeks (if I make it that long) due to the extremely rapid labor I experienced with Connor. We won't be able to make that determination until my 38 week appointment, based on where my body is at that point. I kind of have a feeling I won't make it to that point... I told Jamie last night my guess (based on pretty much nothing) is that I will go into labor some time between next week's 37 week appointment and my 38 week appointment. We'll see ... but either way, July 26th is likely D-Day if I don't go before! YAY!
