39 week update

I just got back from my 39 week appointment and I'm happy to say I've progressed some.  I'm currently more than 1cm dilated, 50% effaced, and the baby is at -1 station. This puts my bishops score at a 7, which is a good sign I can avoid a c-section.

If you want to know more about what all that means, check out this link http://www.babiesonline.com/articles/pregnancy/effacement.asp  or this one http://www.amazingpregnancy.com/pregnancy-articles/174.html


No picture this week, yet.  I usually take them on the weekends. I've only gained a half a pound, so I don't think I look too much different.  Thank god it wasn't another 3+ pound week, I don't think my poor back could take it!!
