39 weeks Update

Still chillin'. I gain 1 lb in the last two weeks. I had been gaining 3-4 pounds every two weeks for the past few weeks. So I guess my weight gain has slowed (with Picconlina I gain A LOT of weight in my last two weeks). Baby is very low. It seems I am 75% effaced and about 1.5-2 cm dilated. Who knew? With Piccolina I had no effacement and no dilation at this point (or even a week past my due date). I know it does not necessarily mean anything but I am thinking this may happen soon than I had thought. I was convinced I had at least another good week, even a week and a half in me. Now I'm thinking it could happen this weekend? Still trying not to get ahead of myself. Still chillin but beginning to realize I'm having a baby.

Next appointment will be in one week and then we start the non -stress tests.

I'm just hoping no induction. Come whenever you are ready little girl, but don't make me come in there and get you!

I still have nightmares about my induction with D.

It's the home stretch for you! Very excited.

Oh my gosh - congratulations on being so close!!! I must have lost track of time; I can't believe you'll have that baby in your arms in the next week or so! Apparently it's very common for second babies to come earlier and easier than the first, so hopefully it will happen very quickly and easily for you!

I'm wondering about that next appointment of yours in a week. You may have a sweet baby in your arms by then! This is so exciting, and even though I am relatively new to your story, I am so happy to be here, sharing in the final days of your pregnancy. And thank you, so much, for your comforting words on my blog.

You are so close! I am so excited for you. I hope she arrives soon - on her own without the induction. Good luck!
