Today's Doctors Appointment

So last week I went in for my 36 week appointment. The outcome was that I lost 1 lb, I was dilated to a 2, and 50% effaced. It was a very productive appointment and my doctor, Stacy Paul, told me I would be 7 to 10 days early.

So this week I was hoping that I had progressed a little more or at least stayed the same. Come to find out I had gained 1 lb, equalling a total of 8 lbs the entire pregnancy... I am dilated to a "good" 3 and am still 50% effaced.

Things are definitely looking good I thought, at least I'm not digressing and not just staying the same. Then when my doctor started telling me that she is going to be out of town the whole day Sunday things started to become more real! She was telling me that I could deliver ANY DAY NOW! WOW WOW WOW!!!

Then my mom mentioned that I am going to be 37 weeks tomorrow and Dr. Paul said, "Oh I have you down with a due date of Oct 3, not Oct 8... so you should be 38 weeks on Saturday and not 37 tomorrow!" WOW WOW WOW again!!

This whole time I've been thinking the 8th and she thinks the 3rd but now it could be ANYTIME! So hold on to your pants because we could be having a baby any day now.

Don't worry though, we will keep you updated!

Congrats! That is very exciting. My Dr couldn't come to the hospital. I had Jack 4 weeks early, so your Dr did my C section. I was really scared, but she made me feel a lot better, and did a great job. Good Luck you guys. and I must say that I am jealous that you have only gained 8 pounds!

So exciting!!! I was 1 day early, and with the help of my OB/gyn... she stripped my membrane cuz I was only 1 cm dilated. I still cannot believe you gained only 8 pounds???!!! That's really impressive... I gained 42...lol... lost 48 after pregnancy though...
But you are the luckiest of the luckies..lol...
Good luck to you guys.

WOWEE! If you've only gained 8 lbs., I hope the baby weighs at least 5 of that! ;) We can't wait!
