I'm 9 months pregnant with Logan.
Yesterday was my 37 week prenatal appointment. I wasn't expecting anything exciting, just like all of the other appointments. I knew that I was going to get the Group B Strep test, hear the heart beat, measure the uterus & possibly have my cervix checked. Since I had my cervix checked at labor & delivery just a short while ago & it was high & closed, I didn't expect any change. Well, I was wrong. I'm 75% effaced (cervix shortening & thinning) & 1 cm dilated. Things are starting to move! I had an appointment scheduled for 2 weeks, but because of the changes I'm going to get checked again next week. I was told that if I wanted to, they would do cervical stimulation, a natural induction, to get things going. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. Holy crap! Logan could realistically be here in 2 weeks! I was a little freaked out last night. Not really in a bad way, but in the "oh my God, it's really going to happen" way.
I've been a little hormonal/emotional this morning as well. If I read a birthing story or God forbid I see one on T.V, break out the tissues! I constantly have a lump in my throat, I'm afraid that I'm going to make myself sick at the delivery from being so emotional. I think it's time for a bubble bath, a cuddle cat sitting next to me, chocolate ice cream (thank God we have some), some relaxing music & then hang out in my spa robe & slippers all day while I address the birth announcement envelopes.
