Doctor's Appointment

I saw Dr. D today and everything is still looking good. I've gained an even 30 pounds with this pregnancy which he's happy about, bp is actually the lowest it's been in a while, and baby's heartrate was in the 160's. (It was higher today because I had just had a contraction which caused it to go up.)

He measured me for the 1st time and I'm 40% effaced and 1 cm dilated, so my cervix isn't doing a lot at this point but it isn't completely closed! Of course, he reminded me that it doesn't really mean anything in the grand scheme of things. Baby could come today or hang in there for 2 more weeks. Who knows?

I was hoping for something along the lines of 80% and 3 cm, but I guess I just have a little cervical envy... Seems like everyone else is further along at this point. I'm getting super anxious for the baby to make its grand arrival, but I'm still wishing I could stay pregnant forever. Baby Gil is happy in the uterus, and I'm just as happy about having him/her in there. However, it's starting to seem like the uterus is getting a little unhappy about it's ever-growing resident. :)

Anyways, I go back in one week to check again unless the little rascal gets here before then!!!


  1. Yay for dilation! That's great news - way better than nothing at all!

  2. Little Gil is coming!!! And will be here before you know it. Almost there!!!

  3. 1 cm down! It's getting close!
