39w5d OB appt

I am measuring 6 weeks overdue now (“It’s twins in there!”) and I gained 6 pounds in 7 days. Only a trace of protein these last 2 weeks in my urine and my blood pressure looks great. I have progressed from a fingertip dilated to an official 1. Whoop-de-doo! No other change- no effacement.
We scheduled the c-section… but not until Monday afternoon at 4:30. I have until Monday to go into labor on my own -OR-
I also got my OB to agree to see me once more a few hours prior to having to be at the hospital to see if I’ve progressed. If I am more favorable (say, dilated to a 3 and/or an engaged head and some thinning out) then she will break my water and we’ll see how that goes. It was a compromise I wasn’t supposed to get- an extra last minute long shot. Even I believe this baby is going to be rather big now and I feel I’ve done what I can to get him to come naturally.
So, within 6 days we’ll have a baby one way or another. 😀
