38w4d Appointment

No dilation at all today. Dr. L said she would love to give me some news, but there is no progress yet. She tried to be a bit vigorous with the exam to help things along, but she said she couldn't do much. She could, however, feel his head way down low where it needs to be. I'm not going to lie, I was a bit disappointed. Not that I wanted him here now, but that I was hoping for some progress with all of the contractions and pains I have been having. She said that what I am feeling is his head engaging. Okay, I'll take it. My biggest fear is having a c-section. I am so afraid of everything that goes along with one. She will do another cervical check at next Friday's appointment. She doesn't let her patients go more than a week past their due date, so I will be induced by (I believe) August 6th if necessary.

Tomorrow our house will be professionally deep cleaned while I sit in the pool all day with my family. I can't wait. If I could spend the next two weeks in a pool, I would be thrilled :)



  1. Get ALL the rest you can missy! And rub that belly all day long because you will miss it!!! SO SO EXCITED for you- you look fantastic!!!!

  2. I second everything Brittany just said :) Baby B will be here before you know it!

  3. Those checks don't mean much - you've got plenty of time! Hang in there!

  4. Hope next week's appointment brings you the news you are wanting! Enjoy the Megan time by the pool. Grayson will be here soon!
