Today I had my weekly OB appointment. I'm 39+4 weeks along.
Blood pressure: 113/77
Weight: 187.2 (been about the same for almost 4 weeks!)
Baby Heart rate: 140's
Fundal Height: forgot to ask
Centimeters dilated: ZERO
Since my 36 week check-up they have been checking my cervix. Each time I've haven't been dilated at all.
On the one hand, this information is a little bit discouraging. There would at least be the ILLUSION of progress towards labor if I was dilated a little bit. On the other hand, zero centimeters means nothing. Things can change quickly. Some women walk around dilated 2-3 centimeters for a few weeks. Others (maybe me?) can not be dilated at all and progress quickly.
So. The moral of the story is...we continue to wait and see...
I was very grateful they scheduled me for induction on December 14th (40+6) if I don't go into labor on my own before then. The light at the end of the tunnel: December 14th. They don't like to schedule inductions before 41+0 if one's cervix isn't "favorable". Favorable in this case meaning dilated at ALL.
This is a lot of talk about my cervix, isn't it? Wow.
I'm uncomfortable as ever, sleep is elusive, my attitude struggles...COME ON BABY!!
