Making Progress

And this time I mean me.

Yesterday I had my first cervical check for this pregnancy (and the GBS test - fun times).  After all of the tightening and pressure I had last week I was going to be pretty bummed if everything was closed up tight and nothing was going on.

I'm in luck.  1 cm dilated and 50% effaced.  At my 36 week appointment with Andrew I was a fingertip dilated and 50% effaced with him at -2 station. She didn't tell me what station this little guy is at, though, and I didn't think to ask.  My bad.  Anyway, that means I am slightly more dilated than I was with Andrew at this time, but I think this appointment was also later since I'll be 37 weeks tomorrow (eek!).

My next appointment is next Wednesday morning, but unfortunately my doctor is out next week so I'll be seeing someone else.  It makes me think he will be born next week just because Dr. Evans will be out (she didn't get to deliver Andrew, either, since it was a weekend and I got the on-call doctor). Next Thursday will mark how far along I was with Andrew when my water broke and went into labor.  So yeah, everything is getting real and this kid is going to be here before we know it.

Maybe we should actually come up with a name soon, huh?  ;)
