Appointment Update!

Day 14 of Prodromal Labor:

I’m feeling pretty awful from all the contractions at the moment, but I do have a GREAT update!

My doctor is going to let me try to have my vaginal delivery!!!! Woohoo!!!!! I was so worried he would say we needed a c-section, but he said as long as I go into labor in the next two weeks we can give it a go!

Baby Boy is currently in the 98th percentile – he’s an estimated 8 lbs 13 oz at 37 weeks, 4 days. Yikes! But, he’s proportionate in size so that’s why they are saying it’s okay!

I’m effaced, soft, my cervix has moved to the front, and I’m a fingertip dialated. Progress!!!! Ahhh music to my ears! I could have kissed the nurse practitioner! She is almost certain I will go into labor in the next two weeks. I do hope so because these contractions are awful!!!! And I’m really running out of room for this kid – I’m pretty petite and he’s…um…NOT. It’s causing a lot of issues where I keep almost passing out and I’m dizzy. My heart issues don’t help that either (plus being on the heart meds, etc.). So…let’s get this show on the road!!

We are all ready to meet you little (big) boy!!! Let’s go!!!!!


  1. We are ALL so, so ready to meet you, Baby Boy! So, anytime, Little Guy! You’re going to love it here. It’s a great ride!

    Love you, Nana

  2. Yay for a go at a vaginal delivery. Come on baby boy, mommy is ready to meet you! I pray it is soon and you get a picture perfect delivery after all this trouble baby boy is putting you through.

  3. Those sound like very promising signs for your cervix, so the contractions are obviously doing what they’re supposed to (just a little too slowly!). I can’t believe you grow such a big baby! Hope you go into true labour before he hits the 10lb mark! 🙂 You must be everyone’s hero by now for dealing with weeks of contractions with such grace.
    Thanks for the update!
