A Non-Update Update or Yup, Still Pregnant

So, I'm at about 39 weeks today and I had a doctor's appointment this afternoon. All looks good: baby is head down and blood pressure is normal. The doctor says I'm not dilated, but I wasn't really expecting to be. Besides, I've known people who were not dilated and had a baby the next day, and people who have walked around at 2 centimeters for a couple weeks. I'm not sure why they even check at this point, other than something else to write down in my chart.

Prayers would be appreciated that I would go into labor in the next couple of weeks. After that, the doctors get nervous and start saying scary things like "induction." I'm not too keen on inducing for a number of reasons. I suppose we'll cross that bridge when and if we come to it.

At any rate, I will do my best to keep readers of my blog updated on Preggo Watch '07.

Hey Jodi,
I feel for you... those last week(s) can seem like an eternity. I'll pray for peace (and a growing cervix;) )

Jodi,
I'm praying for grace to make it through the last days and labor to start soon! Can't wait to see who this little one is!
