Forty Weeks 6.27.2010

Not much to report. Uncomfortable and tired and ready and waiting. I went on Wednesday (39.5 weeks) and was still only 1cm dilated and 70% effaced. They did the membrane sweep but nothing happened other than some uncomfortable cramping. I have an appointment tomorrow morning to have an ultrasound and a non-stress test done. I also imagine they'll try another membrane sweep and they want to schedule an induction date. I'm desperate to get this ball rolling before I would have to be induced. Please say a prayer this will get moving naturally and that I won't find out I have a giant baby tomorrow. Fingers crossed!

Contractions have kept up but more sporadically. I've been spending time floating in the pool to take the weight off.

My maternity time has officially started and everything on my list is done so this really needs to get moving.

I'm a little sleep deprived writing this so, long story short, please think water-breakage!

  • How far along: 40 weeks and 2 days


About Me

My photo
I'm a new wife and an even newer mom. I have a secret dream to be super-mom. I love to craft, cook, dance and fill my life with as many adventures as possible. I'm slightly crunchy granola but enjoy a good steak. I'm right brained and type B (with some type A tendencies). I thrive best when I get to use my creative juices. I dabble in photography and party planning. I play piano and have a dream to learn the cello. I want to make the most of this one, short life I find myself living.

About This Blog

This blog was originally intended to be a personal journal of my pregnancy journey and all that that entails--shared with only a few close family members. It was a way for me to keep them posted on all things baby and occasionally post a picture of my growing torso so they could see the progress. After several posts, I started to get hooked on other blogs and became motivated to attempt to do more with mine. We'll see how it goes....
