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.
