Tomorrow is Evan's due date...

Can't believe Evan's due date is tomorrow; however, I'm doubting he'll be here on time. Nate and I are going to have a date night tomorrow...dinner and a movie. It will probably be the last time we'll be able to get out for awhile. Nothing much is new...have been experiencing contractions but nothing consistent.

39 week, 4 day OB appointment...

39 weeks, 4 days today. My blood pressure is great, and I'm not showing any signs of preeclampsia. Evan is measuring on target and his heartrate is great. His head is lower than last week (now a Station 0). My doctor stretched out the cervix/stripped my membranes again today. I'm still 60% effaced, but he said my cervix more soft than last week...and I'm still about 1-2cm dilated. My next appointment is on Monday (if I haven't had Evan yet), and at that appointment they will do a non-stress test to monitor his heart and to make sure the placenta is working appropriately. They will also schedule an induction date for that week since my OB doesn't like to go too far past 41 weeks. As the placenta ages, it hardens and doesn't work efficiently which means he wouldn't be getting the nutrients and oxygen he needs.

I feel so much better knowing there is an end in sight...and Evan will be here in our arms soon!

Just about 39 weeks..

Tomorrow I'm officially 39 weeks, and we are all ready for Evan to be here! This week's appointment went blood pressure is good, Evan's heartrate is nice and strong, and his head is a little lower (station -1). Still 60% effaced...and now between 1-2cm dilated. Even though his due date is next week, I feel like I'm never going to go into I'm going to be pregnant forever! I just want him here...holding him in my arms.
