Yesterday was my 37 week appointment and it went very well. They took my weight, blood pressure, and we heard the heartbeat. Everything is right on track. I got the results back from the Group B Strep Test and it was negative. She also did another internal and as of yesterday I was 2cm dilated and 75% effaced! She said since I made progress from last week, that it is looking really good. She said that a lot of walking will help get things moving, so last night me and Joey walked to my aunt and uncles.
Last night I woke up at about 3am having contractions. They were not too bad as I could walk and talk through them. At about 5am I woke Joey up to tell him and we started timing them. They were about 7-10 minutes apart and were lasting about 1-2 minutes. I decided that if they didn’t go away, or got stronger that we would go to the hospital at around 8. Sure enough at about 6 they stopped and I went back to sleep for about another hour. I am really hoping this means that labor will start soon, although I have heard that this could happen for another couple weeksL
My due date is in 2 weeks, 2 days and we can’t wait to meet Oliver!
