Baby Update: 37 weeks

Today was my 37 week appointment, the one where you're finally really and truly considered full term.  I was keeping my expectations really low, as in expecting Doc to say, "you're fat and not dilated," so that if the news was any better than that, I'd be happy.

He left out the "you're fat" part, so I guess I'm happy.  And all the other stats were good: blood pressure, heart rate, belly tape measure, etc. 

But I won't lie: I was really really hoping that he'd say I was dilated to at least one. 

So that there was a least a reason for waking all night to contractions the last few nights. 

Oh, well.

Maybe next week.

Hang in there girl! You are almost there!! And then the family of 5 begins! It's a wild ride, but sooooo completely awesome getting to experience the newborn stage with just ONE baby. You are going to love it. I was nervous, but it's been amazing. I am savoring all the newborn stuff cuz it's going so fast! Thinking about you!

hang in there! With baby #2, I wasn't dilated at all at 40 weeks until I went in for my induction on my due date, fully expecting to have to spend the night doing Cervadil. When I got there and got checked, I was a just never know :)
