we just returned from our latest visit with dr. le... despite the MANY contractions i've been having -- about one hour, for the last two days, painful enough to wake me from my slumber -- there hasn't been any more progress in the dilation department. still at 1cm. man.
here's the game plan:
2/3 - due date
*2/6 - next appointment with dr. le: checking status of dilation, heartbeat, etc.
*2/11 - another appointment: this will be 1w+1d post due date. dr. le will check baby's heartbeat again, do an ultrasound to check amniotic fluid, check status of dilation
*if by that friday/monday, we don't have baby green, we'll be scheduled to be induced
*obviously these are 'if necessary' appts. let's hope baby green comes right around his/her due date. fingers crossed.
thanks for keeping up with the progress (or lack thereof) -- and wish that we have the baby before the 15th-ish (we don't want to be induced!!) i asked dr. le if we could do anything, and he said there's NO nonmedical practices that prove to start labor... kissing that 'prego pizza' in clayton goodbye, then. it'll probably be more hassle than it's worth. i-n-d-i-g-e-s-t-i-o-n-c-i-t-y-u-s-a.
