36 week check up



I had my appointment with Dr. Damore yesterday. She did the strep B test and while I was already "exposed" we decided to check me to see if anything was happening. I was excited to hear that I'm dilated! Only a one! Which really is nothing but still something! I'm also 50% effaced! It was fun to hear that even a little action was going on.
I now see Dr. Damore every week and I look forward to seeing if there is any change next week.
I thought I was really going to hate these checks but I think it's really exciting to find out any progress.
My doctor leaves it up to me if I want to be checked or not. She's really easy to talk too and takes time to listen and answer any questions you have. I've really liked her and hope she is on call when I go into labor. Cross your fingers for me.
3 and 1/2 weeks until my due date! I really hope I don't go over! Cross your fingers again for me.

yeah that's exciting. When I went into be induced I was only a fingertip and I think they were only saying that to make me feel better! Hopefully everything will go well for you the rest of pregnancy and delivery. Maybe I should use your ob for my next baby cause I didn't like my office with Jarom!
