I'm still pregnant!

I had another appt today. I'm 37 weeks and 4 days. My midwife was out for a birth, so I saw one of her assistants instead.

Everything looked good. Blood pressure was 120/63. Urine was clear. baby was measuring 35 weeks (same as last week, so apparently the baby has dropped further. Baby's heart rate was 140bpm, which is the lowest it's been so far, but it's always been in the 140's.

I wasn't sure if I wanted her to check me or not, but I went ahead and had her do it. I am now 3cm, and 60% effaced...So a little further than last time(1-2cm and 50%). She said the baby's head is very low, and I was very soft, so hopefully it won't be much longer! (but I'm not holding my breath, as baby seems to be pretty cozy in there)

Anyway, I set up my 38weeks appt for next week, same time...I wonder if I'll make it?
