40 Weeks, 6 Days

I had my 41 week appointment this afternoon. Dave came with me and sat with me as they ran a Non-Stress Test (NST) and performed an U/S to measure his fluid levels. All looked really good. He was squirming around a bit (as much as he can in that space) but we still got to see his face and torso. The NST came out, as the nurse and Doctor described, perfect. I had a few contractions that also showed up during the scan. My cervical showed me at 1.5 cm dilated and 75% effaced, which means there's some progress already. The doctor did a sweep, which may help move things around. I really would prefer that this boy comes on his own, but if nothing happens by Tuesday night, I've an appoinment to go in for an induction.

And so he decides to make his way out on his own this morning! :o)
Silly enough, after I got your text I couldn't go back to sleep!
I'm SO giddy and excited about meeting him! Perhaps I will come see you, Dave and the baby tomorrow! Let me know if there's anything I can do for you while you're there resting/recuperating :)
