Yet another appointment...STILL NO BABY

So yesterday was week 38...I met with my nurse since my DR is on vacation until this sunday, and sadly there has been NO CHANGE! I have remained about 50% effaced, and dilated to a 1 since week 36! Im kind of surprised since I have nearly gone to the hospital TWICE thinking I was in labor, but both times the contractions went away after about 4 hours. I cant believe those episodes of 'false labor' didnt dilate me at ALL! They were painful enough to keep me awake all night, but apparently USELESS!!! The only positive news is that im measuring small. Not too small, but about a week behind. So hopefully the baby is small, OR my fluid may be getting low, which could mean an INDUCTION soon! At this point id take any excuse to GET IT OUT!!! We can harldy wait to see who this little person is!

Congrats on the post. I'm sure the nurse had it all wrong and you are dialated to a 5 and 85%effaced! No worries girl...that baby is coming.

So I totally freaked out yesterday when I put in your link as "californiabeals.blogspot.com" and the first thing I saw was a newborn baby. HAHA. Try it.

Maybe you'll go a week overdue, then FINALLY go in the night before your scheduled induction to get "prepped", get home at 1AM, take a Tylenol PM, only to have your water break at 2AM....Oh wait, that was me! I doubt anyone else will have to go through that ridiculousness. It will all be over soon kiddo! Hang tough.....

Sorry you're baby won't come out :). I liked what you said on one of your last posts "just picture me puffier and more depressed"...ha ha ha. That was a classic!
I am home sick with strep...so just picture me uglier and smellier. :)
