Yes, I'm still pregnant! There- that's the update! hehehe No my sister was giving me a hard time that I haven't posted any update on my doctor appointments, etc. So here goes!
I am now 39 weeks pregnant. My due date is still the 17th (next Tuesday/one more week). I've had a few appointments since my last post. Today was the latest. So I'm now dilated to........drum roll........ 2.5 not quite a 3. I've been making about .5 headway each week it seems. I was really hoping for more today. The baby is sitting a lot lower (I think) and very uncomfortable so I was hoping that would make more of a difference! Oh well. I am glad to be make at least some progress and not just staying at a 1.
It does look like they will let me induce next week towards the end of the week so I won't be in the hospital on Thanksgiving. But I don't have an official date. We are all still hoping that I will go on my own before then.
So part of me is losing hope that I can go naturally on my own. Everyone says my body knows what to do this time. But really I think my body has no freakin clue what to do. I feel like I have been in labor for a few weeks now! False contractions all throughout the day and night that never really evolve to more. I really would prefer not to be induced this time, but either way I get a baby! :) I'm all about the end result! I plan to do a nice long walk tomorrow just in case that will help! hehehe
