38 week doctor's appt... 1 cm!

Even though I won't "officially" be 38 weeks till tomorrow, I had my 38 week appointment today. The baby is healthy, has a heart rate of 156bpm. My blood pressure was up at the beginning of the appointment., 138/80 which is high for me. It went back down by the end of the appointment to 110/70, so she said we would just monitor it closely, especially since I have so much edema (swelling).

I am 1 cm dilated and 0% effaced. My doctor said I probably won't go into labor this weekend, but when she asked if I had an appointment scheduled for next week, she said, "Hopefully you won't make it!" :-) Hope! I have hope! She said it's still pretty early and before my due date so it could be a few more weeks... which I know, but my body is miserable and ready for a break!

I just keep telling myself that 1 cm is better than nothing...

  1. Hey I'm 1 cm too! Soo exciting! It's awesome to know our bodies are headed in the right direction. I don't have another appt until the 4th, but I'm very excited to see if I have gotten any farther. Congrats!
