We had our 40 week appointment today. My due date is tomorrow!! Here are the stats from Baby Watch 2010: Week 40:
Weight: Same as last week. (2 lbs over my pre-pregnancy weight)
Cervix: Still 1 cm dialated & now 75% effaced. Cervix is soft (ripened)
Baby's Position: Finally confirmed that baby is head down. WAHOO!
Overall Progress: Still looking fine. The doctor said (again) that she can tell that my cervix has been contracting by the way it feels. Slowly but surely making progress. Baby steps...
So, the big news is that we've scheduled our induction for next Tuesday, September 21st, when I'm exactly 41 weeks-- this gives us the most time to allow him to come on his own, which is certainly possible in the next week. Until then, we continue to wait...
