It's getting really close to Dominic's birthday, I can feel it! I've been dialated/effaced for at least a month now (got checked at 36 weeks -1 station, 1 cm. dialated, 60 % effaced, VERY favorable cervix) but he just isn't quite ready yet. A shy baby? I've started taking EPO, but I am in no big rush to force him out. He's welcome to hang out as long as he doesn't go over 42 weeks. (M/w won't let me go further- and I trust her judgment). She did say last night that she doesn't think I will make it to my next appointment (on the 28th) and that it would be nice if he made an appearance soon. I'm hoping for this weekend. We think (by feel and fundal height) he's at least 9 lbs. at this point. I've been measuring 4-5 weeks ahead for quite some time, and he fills out my torso fully! Toes in the lungs, head on the bladder! I've been spending lots of time on the birth ball, DTD, walking around... I have an hour or two of uncomfortable contractions every night- but they always fizzle out by morning. I'm just waiting until they decide to stick around and be really productive!
Anyway, I guess I'm rambling. I see I am one of the next to go, so I just wanted to update you all!
