39 Week Check Up: Please Tell Me The End Is Near!

Not throwing gang signs, just keeping my fingers crossed for news of progress...

After having some severe cramping and a few painful contractions this past weekend, I was excited to go in for my weekly check up with my OB/GYN this morning to see if I’ve made any progress. Last week, I was 2.5-3 cm dilated and 50% effaced, and I was praying that my doctor would tell me I have dilated more. All I wanted was for her to assure me that the end is near…

Well… not the best news… I’m still 3 cm dilated and have gone from 50% effaced to 70% effaced. I guess that’s some progress, but with as painful as those cramps were this past weekend, I guess I was just hoping for more. Everyone in my family is on pins and needles waiting for this baby to get here. I can’t call my hubby or mom during the day without them answering the phone asking me, “did your water break!?!”

I’ve decided to try and just stop thinking about it. The anticipation is driving me insane, but I really want to enjoy these last few days with my baby girl before our world totally changes with the arrival of her baby brother. He will come when he wants to come I suppose, but I’m telling you, he’s starting to overstay his welcome inside my body. ;)
