Today brought the second doctor appointment of the week. Everything is looking good. BP is fine. Amniotic fluid levels are fine. The heartbeat is fine. Unfortunately there wasn't much for progress towards actually delivering this little girl. No contractions. Still dilated at 1cm. Dr. C did say my cervix seemed softer and that Jillian moved into a better position. She stripped my membranes so we'll see if that helps at all. If the baby hasn't arrived by next Thursday's appointment, then she'll schedule an induction.
Oh and we got the u/s tech to measure the head size, which has been a tremendous source of nervousness for me given the size of Jeramy's. Luckily she proclaimed it to be completely average. Phew!
We're getting anxious for Jillian to arrive, although I'm trying to remain patient. Jeramy is especially antsy. He keeps tapping my belly and instructing her to come out. Unfortunately it seems like she's like her mom...stubborn and running late!
I did get some u/s pictures, but it is difficult to make much out at this stage of the game. You can kind of make out a ghostly image of her face in this picture. Do you think she looks like Jeramy or me? (Either answer would probably be correct given that we look an awful lot alike).
