The Most Pregnant I’ve Ever Been

I’m still here and chugging along at 38w2d!!

I’m very much in count down mode right now. There are still a few things we need to do, but for the most part, I would say we are about 75% ready! The biggest things are done and I’ve been in complete nesting mode. I just need to find time to do the little things that are left…ya know like figure out how my new pump works and stock the pantry and freezer. 

Since my last post, I haven’t had any more hospital visits. I’ve had a ton of regular BHs, some cramping, some nausea and some pressure/lightening crotch. 
My appointment last week was pretty uneventful, which is not a bad thing! We made it to 37 weeks after all.  Even though we didn’t do a growth scan, I feel like the baby is going to be huge! I mean I feel huge! How do women go to 41 weeks?!? I give them a ton of credit! 

My Ob and I briefly talked about the plan for this week. I have my appointment tomorrow and she will do a cervical check to see if anything has changed. I would be surprised if it did since I haven’t had a ton of painful contractions. I’m probably still just 1cm dilated. I do feel like the baby has dropped some more though.

If things are somewhat favorable we will try a membrane sweep. I’m a bit nervous since I’ve never had one, but how bad can it be compared to every other fertility procedure I’ve had? 

Guess we will see!!

  1. How are you already over 38 weeks?! Awesome. 🙂 I had a sweep with my last pregnancy and it wasn’t bad at all. Hardly even uncomfortable. Hopefully it gets things moving along for you. 🙂

    • I think it depends on your care provider. I had a sweep when I was 2.5cms and it was hideous. Not saying this to freak you out but more to prepare you that it can be a tad unpleasant otherwise you will get a shock if it’s not a breeze. I got the biggest shock ever! I mentioned it in my birthing group and some said it was ok and some said rubbish so just go in with an open mind and low expectations and hopefully you will get a pleasant surprise!! Good luck!
