38 week doctors appointment
This might be a little TMI for some of you reading, and if so, I appologize, but I have nothing else to do but wait and play on the computer, so I decided to update the blog world on the baby watch. I went in for my 38 week OB appointment today and the doctor checked my cervix again to see if things were progressing. Last week I was 1cm dilated and 60 % effaced and today I was 2cm and 75% effaced, so things are progressing which is exciting (and scary)!!! My doctor asked if I wanted her to strip my membranes to stir things up and of course I let her go for it! She is on-call this weekend and thinks that Lila might come during that time. Of course, I'm still not getting my hopes up for this weekend, because like I said in my previous post, Lila will come whenever God has planned for her arrival! My mom is coming down tomorrow morning instead of February 5th now which will be nice since Josh is working all weekend! I think the fact that I'm even dilated a little made her too nervous to wait since they are a good 6 hours away, being in Atlanta. I'm really hoping that my doctor is right and that this weekend is it, but if not, February is a great month to have a birthday as I'm told from several of my friends and relatives with February birthdays :-) !
