So, I had my OB appt today. For those who don't know or remember, I had to get an u/s last week, because my OB was concerned that the baby was ginormous. (My word. Not hers.) When I went in today, I was told that baby weighs in at 7 pounds, is face up, (boo), I got my GBS test, am dilated to 3!!!!, and could go anytime!!!!! (Of course, since my OB told me that, I am now jinxed and will have to be induced at 42 weeks. LOL) I've also been having heart palpitations the entire pregnancy, but they have gotten progressively worse the last few days. She believes it may be stress, blood flow and weight issues. Also, I asked her about the baby's movements, as he doesn't move as much as he used too. she told me to keep an eye on it, and call if it continues to decline. But she thinks he's just lazy and out of room. (Lazy sounds kind of good as Moose is a firecracker!!) LOL

I am excited/scared that I may meet my baby boy soon!! But, I also know that I could be sitting at 3 cm's for a while. Anyways, that's my update!!

I'm hoping he's not too ginormous . Sorry about the heart palpitations.

I was 2-3 cm at my 36 week GBS testing with DD#2, but I didn't have her until 3 days before my due date. They pretty much told me that 2-3 cm doesn't mean much for a second-timer.

Seems like a pretty good appointment!

I get heart palpitations too, both pregnant and not pregnant. Taking some electrolytes helps, you can just drink some Gatorade or Powerade every day, or take some minerals like potassium, calcium, magnesium and sodium. I use sea salt and that really seems to help.

I also was three cm dilated very early with my son but ended up two weeks late. I was convinced he would be early.

I was 3cm dialated with my dd at about 35weeks but had to be incuded at 41. All the way up to 41 weeks I had NOTHING else happen -- no braxton hicks, no real contractions, no NOTHING!

I hope he bakes a little longer but doesn't get too big.
