Got checked today at my 39 week appointment, not dilated at all. Baby's head is down, but that's pretty much all I got for good news, and she's been that way all along. I've had a ton of pressure and contractions are happening, but not doing much I guess. My next appointment is Monday, which is a day past my due date. I'm praying this baby doesn't make me wait and go 42 weeks, but it's possible. I don't think my doctor will make me wait quite that long this time, but I had to be induced at 42 weeks last time because the baby wasn't wanting to budge and he was a big boy.
Feeling pretty down about it, but I guess I shouldn't. I always tell myself that it's not that bad to wait until the baby is ready, but I was sure hoping for some progress with all the discomfort I've been having lately.
awww...don't despair. I've always been pretty much closed up tight until I went into labor and I haven't gone more than 5 days past my due date. It's frustrating to have all these contractions and not be making progress but keep in mind that your body is practicing and hopefully when the big day arrives, you'll have a very efficient labor!
Momma to 3 boys!

Yes, but he only meant he would speed things along if I was starting to dilate, for now. At this point he isn't willing to induce without some dilation starting. I've had such different contractions with this pregnancy, so I just really thought something would have started by now. I hope I go into labor on my own, but that I also have enough time to get my mom down here to watch the kids!
