37 weeks now!!! Today was a day of good things.

10:30 am--At my NST the baby was very active and my BH contractions were not really affecting Baby Benz at all. Resting heart rate was in the 130s for the most part.

1:15 pm--Then we went in for my u/s. Baby Benz was playing with his/her toes and making kisses at us. Our baby's measurements were all proportionate...no problems from the GD The estimated weight of Baby Benz, at current time, is 7.75-8.25 lbs. She measured my cervix and says it's still long, and my fluids and there's a lot in there.
*I will post pictures in a couple days, after I get the shots scanned into the computer and edited for size. I have to work tomorrow, so it will probably be Thursday.

2:00 pm--After that was my appointment with the doctor. We talked about my birth plan and got the last of my questions answered. The doctor was very helpful and happy with all of the news from the earlier appointments. We did tentatively schedule an induction for the 25th, because of the GD. She said that this could get moved up if any of the upcoming tests/appointments show issues. Or that it could not be necessary if my body goes into labor on its own. Please pray that my body goes into labor on it's own...I don't want to be induced.

I'm glad all went well and the baby is looking great. I will pray that you go into labor on your own and don't need to be induced. wow, it's almost that time.

I can't believe you are already full term!! Yay for great appts. I hope you go in naturally so you don't have to be induced. I know I feel the same way as you with the diabetes and want mine to come on her own somewhere between 37-38 weeks so that we can avoid induction as well.

I guess its about time for you to try all the home remedies. Fresh pineapple, dtd, walking....hmm, thats all I can think of right now.

I just can't believe we will be hearing another birth story and more baby pics in 2 weeks or less. Yay!!!

I can hardly believe it myself. We won't be working on getting things started for another week and a half or so though.
