Random: Progression

Simon is still measuring ahead. He always passes his biophysical with flying colors too.

Today the doctor checked me out and I'm at 3 cm dilated, and 90% effaced. He was surprised, but not at all concerned. He believed Simon would come before our 39 week induction plan. We'll just see when this little guy comes. I've read that people sit at this stage for 2 weeks, and all sorts of variations in between, so I'm not expecting him tonight or anything. Again, his weight is somewhere in the upper 6lb range already, so the doctor is confidant he'd be just fine if he came soon. I'd feel better knowing that he's safe and sound, with no abruption or other issues...and I'm surprisingly calm about the whole labor and delivery scenario even.

  7. How wonderful to hear that Simon is doing well! As long as he's fine, it would sure be nice if he showed up a bit early so you could skip the extra week(s) of anxiety and get straight to the good stuff.

  8. Oh wow! I'm so glad to hear that he is measuring fine and that you have peace about the whole thing. Maybe Simon will come before our baby Heppner. Oh, how we can have a good laugh about that one, eh?

    thinking of you even if I'm totally clueless about this topic and don't know what to say... or if the things I do say are okay :)
