Sorry for the delay- no time to update on Friday!
Heartrate = 133
BP = 112/70
Cervix = 1.5 cm, 80% effaced (Technically, it was 80% effaced last week, but the other doc didn't bother to tell me. I read my chart to find out.)
So, everything looks good, again. Yeah!
According to Dr. Ass (who was nice this time) I will most likely get to meet this kid in the next week. His words were that I should schedule my next visit, but that I probably won't make it. My thoughts on this? Well, if he's right- great. But I'm not taking is as written in stone. If I had been less effaced last week, or more dilated this week, then I might be more willing to call out the trumpets. Until then, I'm just taking it a day at a time.
Now, mind you, I know that at this point I am on "any day now" alert. So, as I leave work each day I make sure to update my files and arrange things so that if I were to not return the next day- no biggie. But I have been doing that anyway for about a week.
If "notions" have anything to do with it, maybe I will have the kid this week. Last week I had a moment where I was convinced that the baby would come this week. Wednesday to be exact. Every once in a while I get a notion, and sometimes it is actually right. I have, surprisingly, had no other notions this pregnancy. Nothing on the sex or anything. It could be my body's way of giving me a head's up, or it could be a hormone-induced state of insanity. But regardless, I have no control over when labor begins, how long it will last, how intense it will be, or when I will finally get to meet this kid- so until I'm in the process of one of the above, I am not going to obsess about it.
We did finally install the car seat, though...
