Ill be 38 weeks tomorrow, so I'll call it that! Blood pressure was fine. I'm now 3cm dialated and still 50% effaced. Glad that some progress is being made, less to do once I go into labor! I asked the dr to guess her weight by feel and she guessed 6 lbs, 15 oz or 7 lbs. I'm thinking she'll be smaller than that. She also doesn't think I'll make it to the scheduled c section date of May 2nd, and I hope she's right so I can try for my VBAC. The anticipation of going into labor is pretty exciting for me. Some days, I'm so ready to be done, but other days I'm not ready to be a mom of 2 just yet.

wow, you're getting really close! I hope the VBAC works in your favor! We're never quite ready until it happens and then you wonder why you were concerned in the first place! Will be thinking of you - good luck!!

I'd be really, really, really surprised if you made it to May 2nd considering you're already at 3cm and 50%. I think it's a little unusual to sit at 3cm for much longer than 2 weeks tops. I've been googling this all week considering I'm still at 2cm lol I hope a VBAC is in the cards for you! I haven't had a c-section, but my vaginal deliveries are an experience I wouldn't trade for anything.

Sounds like a promising appointment. And I agree, if you're that far progressed, staying pregnant until the beginning of May doesn't sound like it will happen. Good luck!

Oh how exciting! It definitely sounds like a VBAC is a good possibility. I hope it happens soon!
