Doctor Appointment

Nothing to get excited about. There is still no activity - no effacement or dilation. The baby is lower, but has not dropped into position yet. We go back a week from today - March 6, which will be three days after the due date.

The doctor did go ahead and put us on the books at the hospital for inducement so it is scheduled for March 11 if nothing happens. The doctor did say that she thinks we will have to be induced. That's her gut feeling, but of course no one knows.

As far as health goes, baby and I are wonderful. Heartbeat is in the 160s, my blood pressure is 118/74 and I haven't had any weight increase in two weeks. The baby still has plenty of room to move around which means I'm not carrying a 10 pounder by any means. Based on measuring, the doctor estimates we are at about 6 1/2 pounds which is perfect. Even if the baby gains another pound before birth I should not be dealing with a large baby.

I am perfectly content with everything. My husband, on the other hand, is done with the waiting game. He's ready to meet Little One! We'll keep you posted!

SO, funny. We are the exact opposite! I am SO ready to have the baby and Flint keeps telling me to be patient! I do not want to have to be induced, but part of me is wondering how much longer I can hold out! I am in a little pain here! I have NO signs of labor either! Baby had not dropped, no dialation, and no effacement as of monday! Come on babies...give us a break here!

I was exactly the same as u! The doc said I would probably go past my due date... And nope 2 days early! I think the circumstances are what made me doubt I was in real labor when I was! Either way u will meet your sweet baby very soon!! Congrats!

I am so proud that you are so patient...I am so ready! Enough is enough for me. Sounds like we are all in the same situation. Good Luck.
