Re: Gah! I just want to have my baby!

I was supposed to have an appt. last Wednesday, but my MW got called to a birth. I have no idea if I'm effaced dilated or anything.

Re: Gah! I just want to have my baby!

I had my 39 week appointment this morning. I'm due on Saturday and I just want to be done. I had her sweep my membranes. I had my membranes swept when I was overdue with my DS and it hurt so very badly. Amazingly, it ended up not really hurting at all this time! I was so worked up over it before she did it though that I think it really affected my blood pressure. My BP was 137/90. The protein in my urine is at +1. I gained 4 lbs in a week, but I think the scale was off. I've barely gained 4 lbs this whole pregnancy. I simply cannot believe that I've gained 4 lbs in just this past week alone. My midwife said that she's not concerned about preE since I'm not having headaches or seeing spots. Anyhow, I was dialated to 2cm before she went in. She said she stretched me to 3cm. I'm 80-90% effaced. The baby is sitting at -1 station. I've had a few light contractions since, but nothing to raise any eyebrows over. I'm going to get intimate in my breastpump here in a few. My mom is coming over to walk me later tonight. I'm going to seduce DH later too. I'm throwing every trick I've got at it. I so desperately want to be done tonight!

Come out baby, come out!!!


I had my 39 week appt. today and opted for the sweep. omg. But, I have made progress from my false alarm trip to L&D on Sat. I was 1cm/25% effaced and today I was 2cm/50% effaced. I'm so ready!

I'm thinking that today's the day. I've been contracting lightly all night. It's not going away. They are slowly getting stronger. Fingers super crossed!!!

Well it is after midnight so I am due today! Sooo much sciatic pain and soreness in my pelvis. As desperate as I feel, I cannot imagine having sex right now, even if it would help! Baby's head is so low, I can almost feel it when I wipe.

Any luck. Ashley??
