I had another check-up today - I'm 39.5 weeks along - due this Friday. I've finally made some more progress and am now 3 cm dilated and 80% effaced. I'm a happy girl. That means all the inconsistent cramping I was feeling this weekend was doing its job. Now, if we could just get it to be consistent, and say, 5 minutes apart for an hour or more so I can head to the hospital and meet this little guy/gal!
My doctor doesn't estimate birth weights because it's so unreliable, but he did measure the head today (not really a precise measurement either in his mind) and it's measuring right at 39.5 weeks. I have completely lost my mucus plug starting Thursday and continuing all weekend and today (ew!) and the doctor said my bag of waters is bulging.
The hope is that I have more significant labor before my water breaks and the hard core stuff starts. With Jack I was only about 2 cm when my water broke and that wasn't ideal. As of now my next doctor's appointment is Monday and I will be induced next Thursday or Friday. Fingers crossed that we won't need either of those things!!
