    Update on me

    Hi Ladies,

    Just a little update on me. Had a Obgyn appt for 38w2days. Dr. checked my cervix and said that even though its soft, there is no dilation. Baby is not engaged. I am disappointed. I was hoping that i was making some progress. They will check me again next week. No clear plans right now, but my doctor doesnt induce before 39 weeks. baby weighs approx 6lb2oz, so i dont think they will be in a hurry to get her out either.
    we bought a house and our moving date is 19th, so maybe she is waiting until we get settled in I have a feeling i am going to have a "Jessica Simpson" pregnancy. Doctor did say that since i am really petite, they dont want the baby to get too big. I will probably know more next week.
    I hope everyone else is doing well. you ladies are always in my prayers.

    I hope your baby comes soon. My babies are 5 1/2 and 4 1/2 lobs each so I'm right there with you worrying that mine will get too big before they take them. I'm hitting 35 weeks tomorrow so my doctors are trying to get me to at least 36-37 weeks.

    Waiting for the last few weeks to be over is the worst!

    I could not believe that Trevor was 8lb2oz at 37w2d. Thank goodness he came when he did. If he stayed in there he would have been ginormous!! lol.

    I hope your little girl makes a timely arrival!! Cant wait to hear your birth story.

    Hi Rooni -

    I just wanted to let you know not to get too focused on the weight your doctor gave you, b/c it can be really off... I was sent to the hospital to be induced at 40w2d and They estimated my son to weigh approximately 7lbs even. He was born at 5lbs15oz. I know the weight can go in either direction, and hopefully you won't have much longer to wait! Can't wait to hear!!

    Thank you ladies.

    Just starting to freak out (i do that a lot, if you cant tell ). Having PCOS, i just have no faith in my body. What if i just dont produce the necessary hormones for the process to start? what if i have complications? what if the baby gets harmed...?

    Every class i take or article i read says "mother nature will takes its course" or "your body will know what to do". well my body should know to have a regular period or not have body and facial hair. None of that happened....

    I hope all goes well. i'll know more next monday i guess. \

    ty for listening
