Well, I’m still rolling along on the pregnancy train…..  I am officially 13 days overdue now.  Yesterday we went to have a Biophysical Profile done, which is an ultrasound to get an idea how the baby’s doing…..  Fluid levels, organs functioning ok, etc.  She passed with flying colors, and everything looks great.  Today we had a midwife appointment, and baby’s still doing great and so am I.  It looks like I could go into labor at any point- I am 4 centimeters dialated, 90% effaced, and -1 station.  This baby could come any time!  The midwife also stripped my membranes, which might help.  I am feeling very hopeful that I might have a baby tomorrow!



It is getting harder and harder to patiently wait for this little baby to arrive.  I just can’t wait to meet her, hold her, name her….  Plus we have all these cute clothes to play dress-up with!  But still no signs of labor.  I wonder how long I’m going to have to wait?


I am officially five days overdue now.  I’ve been having a few contractions very early in the morning most days, but then nothing happens.  We had an appointment with the midwife today, and that went well.  Baby is still looking good, everything is normal.  If she still isn’t here in a week, we have to go in for a Biophysical Profile.  The BPP is an ultrasound where they measure the amniotic fluid level and make sure the baby is still doing well.  HOPEFULLY she’ll show up before then, so we don’t need to worry about it 🙂
