OB appointment at 35 weeks and 6 days

Blood pressure - OK
Urine - Lots of sugar in it thanks to the OJ I chugged all morning
Weight - 1 pound
Baby's Heart Rate - OK
Measurement - 39 1/2 weeks
Dilated - 0 cm

All is well in the womb. No dilating yet, kind of a bummer. But it was good to hear I'm only measuring 39 1/2 weeks instead of 44 like last week! The baby was messing with me, he must have been all stretched out. I even feel I look smaller and others have commented on that as well.

The doctor doesn't really see any reason why I would go into labor early after my OK sonogram and it's too early to talk about inducing. I don't think that will even become something they would suggest at this point unless my due date has come and gone, thank goodness. I won't let them induce before my due date as I'm sure I've said enough already (without good reason). Although if I have many more sleepless nights I just may change my mind.

But he said everything is completely normal and looking good. He did said hopefully I'll go into labor at 38 weeks instead of 44 but there is no reason to think it'll happen one way or the other. He suggested we get down n' dirty to ripen up my cervix a little! That doesn't sound too bad to me either! Who am I kidding, I can't say I really have felt up to it. Except for the other night but that was after last weeks appointment when we weren't sure if it was a good idea. But we got the green light now, so it's a go, it's a go!! All in the name of a ripe cervix, of course!

So back to my uneventful appointments. Time is dragging now! But 1 pound! Did you hear that?!? I ONLY GAINED 1 POUND, this was my first "normal" weight gain!!

So glad everything is well with baby! And congrats on the weight! I know you were stressed about that. Now it's back to the waiting game, but at least now you know everything is healthy and normal and that a trip to the movies here and there is perfectly fine!!! Now we just have to get you some sleep! May I suggest some foot rubs from DH to help relax you???? :o)

I am so glad everything is going well! So who is going to give us the play by play when you do go into labor so we all don't get worried b/c you haven't posted? LOL :)

Yeah, I'm glad you only gained 1 lb., lol. After about week 25 I just stopped looking at the scale and gave strict instruction that they were NOT to tell me what it said lol.

Don't be in a hurry for that baby! They're MUCH easier to care for while they're in rather than out. Plus, you never know. He might be in there tending to important business like that one last curl or dimple. You can't rush things like that :)

Enjoy these last few weeks. Go out often, go see some movies, get yourself pampered. Have some sex! Although, the truth be told, I've heard that the prostaglandins (sp) in semen do their best work if taken orally *blush*.

Nothing like sex prescribed by your doctor!

"Honey, I'm sorry you have a headache, but doctor’s orders..."

You can have all sorts of fun with that bad boy, let me tell you!

And congrats on the single poundage and a more squishy baby... nice to see everyone is behaving.

Woo-hoo on the weigh in!!! I am so glad all is going well. I was kind of hoping you'd be having him in the next week or so. Just cause I am selfish and wantg to see how cute he is.

I remember thinking that it was so nice to face Aaron again during sex after the baby came and we had the go ahead. At the end I was like JUST ROLL ME OVER AND STICK ME! Glad all is well with baby boy! Can't wait to see him.
