OB Appt 4/24

I am one cm dilated now.  We will be going to Morton Plant Hospital this Thursday at 4pm to start the induction.  I will be on Cervidil Thursday night and they will start me on Pitocin Friday, if necessary.  So if all goes well we should be meeting Mia on Friday, April 27th!  While an induction wasn't what I had originally hoped for, I am ok with it now and looking forward to meeting our little girl.

OB Appt 4/17

Nothing new to report, unfortunately.  I am still only a fingertip dilated with a soft, high cervix.  I am still having contractions, that apparently aren't doing much of anything!  I go back next Tuesday at 9:20.  Hopefully I do not need to keep that appointment.

However, if Mia still isn't here and I do have to keep that appointment, the Dr said that if the conditions are "favorable" at that time then they would give me Cervidil Thursday evening and we would hopefully have a baby on Friday.  This throws monkey wrenches all over the place, of course.  Welcome to motherhood, I suppose?!  ;-)

4/9 OB Appointment

I had my first internal exam yesterday(not so comfy).  I am dilated a fingertip, cervix is soft but still high and my NST showed mild contractions.  I thought I was having some contractions Sunday night, but not having had them before wasn't quite sure if that's what I was feeling.  Apparently it was!  I have been feeling sporadic contractions since my appointment as well, but certainly nothing to keep track of just yet.  I go back next Tuesday at 9:20 if Mia doesn't make her grand entrance before then!
