The suspense is killing me!!! I can’t believe he’s already almost here! Where has the time gone?!?!
And this has been quite the week already!! I had a doctor’s appointment on Tuesday. I wasn’t expecting him to check me, and even if he did…definitely wasn’t expecting any changes. WRONG!! My cervix is thinned out and dilated at 2 cms. Felt great to know I was actually getting somewhere on my own!! Doc was doing something weird…then explained that he did a “membrane sweep” (or whatever you want to call it) to try to naturally induce labor. I’ve heard of this being successful, and not so successful. He said I should have a few contractions and spot a little bit, and, if successful, labor in 24-48 hours. Well….got almost all of it, I guess.
Had the spotting. Contractions were in check. And no labor. However, I did wake up to losing my “plug” this morning, and I’ve been cramping off and on all day. So….maybe soon?!?! Or maybe not. He did say that if I made it to my next appointment (on my due date) we would schedule an induction. Pretty sure he’s just as worried as I am that if I wait too long, I will not be having him naturally. Really hoping this little guy decides to make his own appearance (and soon).
Bags are packed, and everything is ready to go. We packed a bag for Nate to take to work with him. Just in case he’s in a hurry to leave, he can get cleaned up at work and be on his way. Still keeping my fingers crossed that he is home with me!!!
Thought I would show my true colors this week!! 🙂 Oh yes!!
