  • I will be 35 weeks on Monday. Woohoo!

    Although we (doctors and I) had originally talked about inducing me sometime between 34 and 35 weeks, because the babies are doing so perfectly and because I'm being monitored so closely, we're going to stick it out either until I go into labor, or, no later than 37 weeks!

    That means, I should only have 17 days (or so) left at the most.

    My doctor said he will be really surprised if I make it that far though, and thinks I will go into labor.

    I would love to go into labor on my own. I was induced with both Ava and Keller, so it would be a totally new experience for me.

    I have another growth scan on Monday to check them out again and estimate their current weights.

    At my appointment last week Thursday, I was not dilated at all and about 50% effaced. Yesterday, I was dilated to 1 cm and 60% effaced, so I seem to be at least having some cervical changes. I have lots of contractions, most quite uncomfortable, but nothing that has been consistent yet.

    We'd really like to get to 36 weeks, so that is my mini goal...only 10 days until then....that feels somewhat do-able.

    Whew. At least there is an end in sight! I am getting so completely worn down by being in pain all of the time (from the kidney stent and now of course the aches and pains associated with having a belly even bigger than when I was almost 2 weeks overdue with Ava).

    I am so excited to meet these babies!

  • I really hope that you make it to at least 36 weeks and that you get to go into labour on your own.
