I managed to waddle into my doctor's office this week. One centimeter dilated and 50% effaced (also, my blood pressure is slightly higher, and I've gained 3 pounds in 4 weeks). Later that night we ate some super spicy Indian food and went on a two-mile walk just to help things along. ^^^
I know one centimeter is barely anything, and is no indication of labor being close, but I could have kissed the woman. I'm so excited that my body is starting to make the changes necessary to bring this little boy here! We'll be going on as many walks as my elephantitis ankles will allow.
My doctor also told me to come in the day before my due date for my next appointment. They'll check my progress again. Also, I scheduled a non-stress test (?) for two days after my due date, and at that time, if nothing has happened, we'll schedule an induction. Those are some scary words.
