Family Happenings

39 Weeks & Counting…

We received all good news yesterday at my OB appointment.  I am now dilated to 3 and thinned out.  The last part was great to hear, because every other week, the doctor kept talking about how thick I was.  My bag of water is also bulging which explains all the pressure I have felt lately.  Doc said she saw no reason that I couldn’t go into labor naturally, on my own.  She also said that she’d be surprised if I made it to my due date, which is next Thursday.  Bella’s heartbeat was right around 129.  It was only the second appointment hubby has made it to, so I think he enjoyed getting to hear our little girl.  I did have my membranes stripped again, not that I put much into that.  Bella will make her appearance when she’s ready, this much I know.

We are currently staying with my parents, because of the weather and road conditions.  Snow is quite unusual, but this amount and the fact that it is hanging around is pretty well unheard of.  I am so ready for it just to be gone, so I can rest and relax.. and get back home!  I know I would probably enjoy it a lot more if I could get out and play, but it’s just too risky this far along. 

So, we are still waiting.  and waiting. and waiting.  and sitting in the house about to go completely crazy!  The bad news is that it isn’t going to get warm enough to melt this mess until at least Saturday. 

Other than that, things are wonderful!

  • >How exciting! Bella will be blessed to have such a great family waiting for her. Glad your parents are there to help you out. Stay warm!

  • >I'm so with you, my due date is the 19th and they keep telling me I'm really close and they'd be surprised if I made it to my due date. I wish they'd stop saying that because it makes me feel like a watched pot that never boils. Expect it and it won't come, LOL. I have an appointment tomorrow and I'll find out how far along I am. Last appointment (2 1/2 weeks ago) I was 2 cm dilated and about 80% effaced. Hoping I'm much closer!
