37 Week Doctor Update

***FYI - Post contains doctor/pregnancy info... if you are someone not interested in that kind of stuff just know Landon is still very happy in my belly and don't read any further***

And for those girls out there wanting the details... I went to the doctors yesterday at 37 weeks 2 days. They did the first cervical check this week and the doctor said that things are getting going, but nothing too significant yet. I see the same doctor again next Thursday (38w1d). He said he will do an exam again to see if anything is going on. He said if there is any progress he is willing to strip the membranes away. I had this same thing done with Ryder at 38 weeks 4 days. At that appointment I was 3cm and 70% effaced. I had my appointment around noon that day, realized labor was starting around 8pm, got to the hospital around 9:30 pm, and had a little baby in my arms at 11:11 pm! Here's to hoping things are that simple this time around too!!!

Plan B: If things aren't getting started on their own, and nothing decides to happen in the week after that I have been set up to be induced Wednesday, April 27th at 9pm. I will be 39 weeks at that point. Judging by the late induction time it appears Landon will be here no later then April 28th!!

I'll keep you posted!

Awesome news! Looks like our boys will either be the same exact age or one week apart! How fun!
