38 weeks....

Still hanging in there......




Just got home from my latest Dr.'s appointment everything is good belly is still measuring a little over a week ahead. Dr. seemed surprised to see me, I guess considering this is #5 they don't see many still holding out at this stage. Although I am not shocked in the least. She did do a cervical check, I am dilated to three not really effaced much but b.g's head is pretty low. She stripped my membranes since I told her I am almost always induced. I don't hold out much hope for that process either since it has never worked in the past but who knows???

Any who the most exciting part to me anyways was that I am GBS (group B strep) negative which means unless I am induced or want an epidural I don't have to have an IV....YAY!!!!

As far as how I am feeling physically...Not so great, it's going to be a rough last stretch but I'll make it through and keep my eye on the prize while doing it :) Now if I could just get the family to stop calling every 10 mins to see how things are progressing...

One day at a time.......
