After a "lovely" internal exam at my 38 week appointment, I find that I am still 2 cm dilated and 60% effaced. The nurse practitioner did say (as if it were a good thing), that my cervix is "very, very soft." The head is low (-1 station and it was at -2 station last time) and actually has descended beyond the lip of the cervix.
She wouldn't give us a timeline, but she said that it all looked promising that I wouldn't be overdue. She also gave us a rough estimate on weight - she doesn't think that he seems unusually big and thinks he will be around 8 lbs if we make it to next week. Here's hoping. I want him healthy, but I don't want him too big!
My weight gain is at a respectable 30 lbs. I am happy about that, because even if I went nuts in the next couple of weeks, I wouldn't go much over 35.
My lovely neighbors came over tonight and installed the closet organizer for the nursery. Tomorrow, I plan to organize that and then everything is ready for Little Man. Now, if only he would get the message. . .
