Yes, the title of this one is thirty-nine weeks! It’s officially the end of the road. My doctor has my due date as April 2nd in her files so that would mean I am a few days away from full term. I have been going with the April 5th since my first ultrasound. I know, it’s all pretty much the same. However, a week sounds a lot longer than a few days when you are this close!
At my appointment today the doctor said I am pretty much as far along as I was last week — great! She decided to strip my membranes. Sorry if this is TMI for some of you, I have heard that some folks think it is. I don’t and get these questions ALL the time, so I figure plenty of you are interested. For those of you who don’t know, when this happens naturally it usually means labor is a few days away. In my case, it might encourage labor (yay!)…we will see!
I also learned my doctor doesn’t like to let ladies go much past their due date, which is a relief for me. If I haven’t delivered this next week she will schedule an induction, and I am totally cool with that. I will be 40+ weeks and even more ready than I am while I am writing this.
Can’t wait to share the good news with everyone. I’ll keep you posted and you keep on reading!
