39 Weeks and an end in sight

Mar 15, 2012 - 3 comments

Had my 39 week appointment this morning.  My blood pressure is still high but the Dr. found that if she took my blood pressure while I was lying on my side, it would be perfectly normal.  So she wants me to finish up with my projects at work and then spend the rest of the time while pregnant on my side.  

Because I'm on the edge of pre-eclampsia, teetering in and out of the danger zone, she talked about wanting to induce me in the next week.  I was really hoping to not be induced but if it's safer for me and baby, then so be it.  Hopefully baby decides to come before then though...

Fortunately, my cervix is definitely moving down, and she said I was 2 cm and 50% effaced, which is a jump from 1.5 cm and 20% effaced on Tuesday.  I wanted to spend all weekend walking around to get things moving, but I'm going to have to alter that plan some... here's to starting labor naturally!
