Dr. Apt - Update 38 weeks 5 days

Good news - 3cm dialated! This could of course persist indefinitely as I know Jess was at 3cm for a very long time. That said, I was at 1cm 4 hours before B was born so it does seem a little promising. Should I make it to my scheduled induction date of August 5, it means we can go straight to pitocin and skip the earlier "slow" phase that lasted several days for me last time with no progress. Otherwise, all was well and my Dr. seemed pretty optimistic about the baby coming much sooner than the induction date. I actually lost a pound since last week which is mildly humorous at this stage, but much better than seeing a big jump. Hopefully things will continue to progress. I think we're about as ready as we're likely to be here other than the lack of a name... Brent even installed the car seat yesterday! We'll keep you advised.

"We'll keep you advised." That made me laugh...you're like the Gary England of pregnancy! I hope this goes quickly for you!

We are VERY excited for you! Hope to see you in September as we'll be in Norman over Labor Day weekend!

We'll be 35 weeks pregnant that weekend.

Laughing - was wondering if anyone would catch the Gary England shout out. Smiles:) Excited to see the Steffen's in September and hopefully to meet our little girl soon.

Congrats! Let me just say though I will really be jealous if your angel comes before mine though! I'm working all the old wives' tales - please send some good baby vibes my way! I cancelled my induction for Friday, I just want to give myself a bit more time but I'm really hoping it doesn't come to that. Hope you are comfortable these last few days/weeks.

Ah Summer, I'm sending you lots of happy baby vibes. Hopefully this time next week we'll both be busy with our little ones. I am so not good at waiting I'll admit.

Oh - by the by - we have extra car seat bases. Let me know what kind you are using and if you want, I can bring ours. Grandparents? etc?
