Appointments and Plans

Today was my 39w appt. Weight was down 3 lbs but Dr. P is not worried about it because the past two weeks I've had some swelling of the feet/ankles/hands and this week not so much.  Next was doppler time! The nurse was able to find his heartbeat pretty fast. 136bpm.  Everything else is looking good. Dr. P did another cervical check and the good news is that I'm no longer closed.  I'm not quite to 1cm, but at least it's open now.

We also talked about next week. The plan is that on Monday I'm going to go in for an NST to make sure that everything is okay with GV. Then Tuesday evening I'll go into the hospital to start the induction process (she mentioned gel) with the hope that I'll deliver on Wednesday. She said that if everything was okay on Monday and I didn't want to induce we could wait until the week after but that in her opinion it was better to induce between 40 and 41 weeks.

Kevin has been talking to GV nightly, reminding him that he's suppose to be coming out now. His preference is that GV is born by Wednesday night, that way we might be home in time for the start of the World Cup. And deffo by the England v. USA game.

BTW, work called me again today. Again a quick fix. 2 for 2 so far!

Ha. That's awesome that your hubby wants you to deliver before the England vs USA game. :) I am due July 7th, and I keep "scaring" my husband that I'll probably deliver on July 11th, and you guessed it! It's the World Cup finals! Needless to say, my husband is a bit nervous. ;)

Sounds good! Any progress is good news when a induction is on the horizon.

And why does your husband think he will be able to watch the world cup after the baby is born??? Some people do get lucky and get a little bit of a honeymoon with their babies, but it doesn't always happen (I speak from experience).

Hilarious. My husband is really hoping to schedule the birth around the World Cup (well,not really, but he hints at it all the time)! He keeps telling the boys to go easy on him so that after they arrive, he can catch a few games here and there!

thinking of you!! and know exactly how you feel. I'm in the middle of week 38 and having *talks* with my belly about how it's time...apparently, I'm not so persuasive.
