Progress baby! 37 weeks!

Today was a good dr visit! I didn't gain any weight, wahoooo!

I am dilated 1 cm, and 50% effaced! Yay for progress! His head is nice and low (um, I know!) She also doesn't want to send me right to a c-section (whew!) and wants me to go through labor as she thinks there is a great chance he could fit. (double whew!) but only at that time will we know!

I was also told that I need to get my wedding ring off ASAP. I am supposed to elevate my hand and then try to get it off but seriously have tried everything--soap, lotion, oil, and soaking my hand in ice. I might have to get it cut off and it might make me weepy but that isn't anything weird because everything seems to do that to me lately. I mean I got emotional the other day because something Blake which had no emotional connotation whatsoever....or because i dropped something!

My nose looks like it grew in place of gaining weight this week. Seriously....

My feet look like fat snausages, and my back is killing me but I am so close to meeting my little man, it's crazy. I think I might have a little mini panic attack over that thought....breathe, Amy, breathe!

Good to hear your doc wants you to try labor first and not go straight to c-section. I hope you find a way to get your ring off.

You're getting so close now!

oh man...I hope you can get that ring off. Yikes! I stopped wearing mine at like 12 weeks (but it was tight to being with)

I'm almost freaking out because you're so close!! I mean I just can wrap my brain around what it will be like to actually have her HERE!! And, you'll be able to share all the details pretty soon :).

YAY for progress, Amy! No way are you gonna make it to your due date - how exciting! And hopefully that ring will come off soon. Mine still fits just fine, but I've had no swelling yet...after your experiences, I'll be taking it off the second I do start to swell!

I really hope you find something that works, so you can get your ring off without having to cut it off!
I can't believe how close you are!

Oh my gosh you lucky girl, you are effacing and diliating!!! Me = zero progress on both accounts. I'm happy you are getting there, and almost get to me the little man, yay!!!
