Due date fast approaching...

I'll be 40 weeks pregnant tomorrow and I don't think this little girl has any plans of coming on time.

We had our weekly midwife appointment today and there has been no change with my stubborn cervix.  When we were going through our IUI's and our IVF I remember the Dr. and nurses saying how "difficult" my cervix was and they had trouble with the procedures, but I didn't think anything of it at the time.  Last week it popped into my head to ask my midwife if this could be a reason that I'm not dilating and she thinks it could be. She called it cervical stenosis.

Thankfully, the non-stress test went well and baby girl is still active and having a great time in there.

So here we are, still waiting.  We will be going back next week to discuss induction if there still isn't any progress.

  2. I had a dream that you had your baby next Monday...so I call'd that day in the pool when betting...we were in Las Vegas at a conference. I don't know why you were there though.

    So I'm voting for Monday!

  3. Hopefully you are feeling okay, as I know so many women get to 40 weeks and are just plain miserable. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that baby girl starts to make an appearance sooner rather than later. You are amazing!!

  4. Congrats on making it to 40 weeks! That little girl doesn't know what she's missing by waiting, you will be a fantastic mom! Do try and get as much sleep as you can or go do something fun for yourself in these next few days. I know everyone says that, but it's so true!

  5. Good Luck! I've been thinking about you. I was induced a week late with my first and all went well. I know it's uncomfortable but try your best to rest up! xoxoxo

  8. Do you think your Dr would do a membrane sweep to help things along?? FWIW I went into labor out of nowhere! Right before I went to bed I cried to DH that I was never going to have this baby and I woke up 4 hrs later with contractions! haha

    I hope she comes soon for your sake! I'm so excited for you!

  10. Difficult cervix, haha! Yay for 40 weeks, but I'm sure you're ready to have that girl on the outside! Funny how much waiting you do to even get pregnant, while you're pregnant and then just to have that baby! Hope your cervix gets the memo soon :)

  11. I hope you are feeling okay also. I made it to 39 weeks with Isaac and it was time for him to get out then. I was induced at 39 weeks and it was a huge relief when he was out. I was 9 pounds and 22 in long though. Good Luck!

    Crossing my fingers and toes that your next post will be announcing baby girl's safe arrival!
