And nothing, nada, zip, zero, zilch! Last Wednesday I had a trip to L & D. I was 3+ dilated, he was 50% effaced, in the -2 position, and the contractions were 6 minutes active and 21 minutes non-active apart. So, I was sent home. HOWEVER, per the doctor and nurses that examined me they all said that my cervix was so soft that I would be back before the weekend is over. Well, here we are, Sunday evening and I'm at home. I know there is still 6 hours left in the day and 12 hours before my alarm will go off to get ready for work tomorrow, but still......
Anyway, the little man will come whenever he is ready and that's that! My next appointment with the MFM is on Tuesday, followed by the next OB appointment on Thursday.
So, stay tuned!!!

Today I am 36 weeks and 3 days......on the morning of my last appointment I was exactly 36 weeks; at the exam, I was told that I was 2cm dilated. The doctor said that it was a sign of 'progress', but don't read too much into it. At that time, Per Dr. F, it could be "4 hours, 4 days, or 4 weeks". Exactly 6 hours later I began to lose my mucous plug. I thought for sure that it was almost time. Well, 3 days later....boy, was I wrong!
In exactly 4 days, I will be considered full term. We can't wait to meet our little guy, and no, we still have not decided on a name!
