39 week appt
Had my 39 week appt today. My midwife did a home visit, because she was already going to be in my area for a few PP check ups. It was sooo nice not to have to drive the hour to her office!

Everything looks great! She said baby is VERY low! She couldn't even feel the head from the outside because it was so far down into my pelvis.

We finally got around to doing the GBS test, so hopefully we get those results back soon!

I've continued to progress...slowly but surely...I'm now 3-4 cm, and 80% effaced. All we need now is labor to start!

Oh, and I learned from my midwife today, you are supposed to eat a WHOLE pineapple for it to put you into labor!:p (I've only ever eaten some of it...no wonder it wasn't working! Lol!) So my mom and sister went with me to the store, where we bought a pineapple(and some ice cream:cool:), then came home and I ate the whole thing!(my mouth was getting sore towards the end). We'll see if it works!:D (but I'm not holding my breath!)

I LOVE pineapple but it gives me horrible heartburn.. I'll keep that in mind as a last resort, :lol:

Sounds like baby time is coming soon - who will be updating us?

Re: 39 week appt
Thanks ladies! I haven't appointed anyone in particular to update you all...I just assumed I would do it myself...If I don't get on here before, I'll make sure and post right after (or send my mom or DH on here) to let you all know!:D

Re: 39 week appt
You should be snuggling that new baby - make someone else do it! lol.

I'm so excited for you! :wub:

Do you have any gender thoughts?

Re: 39 week appt
Thinking girl, just because of how different this pregnancy has been...also, I've been SOO much more weepy/hormonal this time, which has been totally different than last time! Everyone else (family/friends/etc..) are thinking the same, so it will be a bit of a shock to us all if it ends up being a boy! Lol! We'll see!...Soon!!:D

I was also told the pinnapple should be under-rippened (same thing with mango and papya if you want to change it up).
