38 Week Update

Saw Dr. Marter - who delivered Fin - this morning for my 38 week appt. Baby was measuring right on, great heart rate and my BP etc was great. He asked if I wanted him to check me and I agreed. Although I was totally bummed to hear that I was making no progress last week, this week I was fully effaced and 3 cms dialated. Whee! He told me he'd be on duty all weekend and "would love to deliver this baby for me" so I told him to go ahead and um, help things along.

I came home full of hope that SOMETHING would happen soon - but so far no dice! I was hoping to start contracting tonight and have this little guy by tomorrow, but I don't think that's in the cards. I wouldn't be surprised to go another week at this rate, but at the same time at least I know I'm making SOME progress so that's reassuring...

Hi maggie,
I aam praying for you and all especially the baby. Hope he comes soon. Will be waiting to hear how Dash handles all.
Love and lots of prayers,

You should hold Tre back a year in school. Otherwise he will be the last in his class to get a driver's license and last in his class to throw away his fake ID... I mean, last in his class to turn 21.

Well the thing is that in CA the cutoff for school is Dec 1...Fin's birthday... SO, not so much making a difference with this dude! I'm thinking now I'm going to hold Fin back, but then do I have Dash right behind him or hold Dash back too? And then if I hold Dash back, this dude would be a year behind him...
