Well today I am 37 Weeks and 6 days (so tomorrow will be 38 weeks). I had my 38 week appointment today and it went really well! The baby's heartbeat was still strong and he is getting more and more ready to make his big debut!
I am dialated 2-3 cm and my cervix is ready for delivery (or close enough). The doctor said it could be any second now, but since babies have a mind of their own sometimes, he wanted to have a plan in place so that I do not go much longer. My next appointment (and final appointment) will be Monday (if I am still pregnant by then). On Monday the doctor will set up a day to induce later that week. So...as of the end of next week (or the weekend) baby Rex will be he for sure. (Hopefully before then, I would love to go naturally without being induced) but he doesn't want me to go much longer and definitely doesn't want me to go to my due date. The baby is so low, he says it could be dangerous for the baby to stay that low for 2 or 3 weeks.
We are so excited! I am just glad that things are progressing and I will not have to go to 40, 41 or 42 weeks; that seems like an eternity!!
So, baby Rex, come on! Mommy and Daddy are ready!
