Brief Update

This morning I had my doctor's appointment. Not much has changed. My blood pressure was high but better then last time. I have not dilated any more but my cervix has thinned. I am now 80 % effaced! I go back on Wednesday and we will see where I am at then. The doctor said he might strip my membranes to get things going. If I don't have Luke by next Monday then he will more then likely induce on Tuesday, September 29th. He said we will for sure have Luke by next week! Let's see what Wednesday brings...

Hopefully soon

Yesterday was my 37 week check up. It became the longest doctor's appointment I have been to. I started off at the doctor's office. My blood pressure was high. It was high the last time I went to the doctor. He didn't like the numbers he saw and told me I need to go on bed rest. :( He sent me to the hospital to have test ran. They hooked me up to see if I was having contractions, listened to the baby's heartbeat and took my blood pressure every 30 mins. He also ordered blood work. We were in the hospital 3 hours doing this. They did put me in a labor and delivery room and made me stay in bed....not fun. They finally released me.
Monday I go to the doctor for another check up... and hopefully we can talk about inducing at the end of the week. He didn't want to induce because I am 37 week and the magic number is 38 weeks.
Maybe this time next week we will have Baby Luke!

Getting Close

Today marks 36 weeks! Only 4 more to go. Today I had a doctor's appointment. It was my first time to get checked to see if I have dilated. The good news is I have! I have dilated 2 cm and 60 % effaced. The doctor said everything looks good. He said he could feel the head when he checked me for dilation. My doctor said he doesn't think I will make it to my due date, he is predicting a week early. I am trying not to get my hopes up about him being early...but I hope he is. My blood pressure was a little high so he said to stay off my feet as much as possible. I go back in a week so I will keep you updated. Nerves and excitement are all mixed together!
