My blood pressure is still elevated and I am continuing to go in 2-3 times per week to have it checked and check on the baby (NST and/or sonogram). It's been elevated for 2-3 weeks now and has leveled off. The doctor initially thought I was going to develop toxemia/pre-eclampsia, but with no change after a few weeks he is beginning to think it's only pregnancy related hypertension, which is good.

I had my membranes stripped 3 times this weeks in hopes of bringing on labor...but it hasn't worked yet. Although I did lose my mucus plug after the 2nd stripping. My doctor gave us the option of inducing early (at 39 weeks...today), but he also said this increases my chances of having a c-section. I really do not want a c-section. We would like to start trying again not long after this baby is born, and I was worried that the doctor may tell us to hold off for a while if I have a c-section (although I didn't ask him). So we decided against being induced. Plus, I like the idea of having labor happen naturally. At the same time I am so ready to have this baby out of me so that nothing can go wrong with him inside me. I'm still a ball of nerves. I am hoping we made the right decision.

I am currently 2cm dilated and 80% effaced, which I've been at this stage for pretty much a week now. Still no contractions. I do feel great, which is a huge plus, and I am trying to enjoy these last few days of being pregnant. It's been such a long journey to get here. I have loved feeling and watching him move inside me. It's truly the most amazing thing I've ever felt. I'm almost a little sad this part is about over. Although I know the next part is going to be even better.

I'll keep you all updated if there's any change/progress!

Hopefully he decides to come soon! What is it with the miracle babies, they must know their momma's wanted them in there so bad they don't want to come out!

Hopefully you will go into labor naturally, but however he gets here, the most important thing is you will get to meet your little boy. I think you have to give yourself 3 or 4 months before you can get pregnant after a c-section.

Okay seriously....twice now I have actually written a post & it did not post!!! Ugh....I keep popping in & seeing that I haven't written in this thread. SOOOOOOO...please know I am trying to show the love! LOL

I do totally understand the part on being little sad. I remember when I went back to work I was especially sad my pg was over....because before then, I could take him with me everywhere I went. Now I was "all alone" and it felt weird...LOL It's all such a weird strange wonderful ride. Enjoy it! I can't wait for you to tell us your birth story & post some pics!!!!!!

Thanks for all your well wishes! I had another appt today and there's still no change. I'm more crampy now so I just knew things were starting to get going....guess not. Oh well. I'm still happy with our decision to wait.

We had a sono today and his cheeks are SO fat! Adorable!

I'm glad to hear that he is still doing so well in there. Enjoy these last days while he is still all yours and you don't have to share him! Even though it's been such a ride, you'll miss not being p/g anymore.

I do hope you go soon, though, because I can't wait to meet your little one!
