DilationYAY!

I know I’m only 35.5 weeks and all but I was so worried I’d go in today and find out that I was not dilated at all and walk out with a c-sec date.  I still hadn’t made up my mind what way to go, and I still want to talk to my Cardiologist about what he thinks.  GOOD NEWS:  When my OB checked me I was already 2 cm and 70% effaced.  That’s SO much better than I was thinking it would be.  I’ve been giddy the rest of the night.  It could be the Percocet they gave me for a 2 day headache I’ve had… but whatever.

The skinny on the Preeclampsia is that I was JUST over the protein level for Pre-e and so for now they are just watching me (still) and I may have to repeat the 24 hour urine collection again at the end of the week (4th time, I’m going for a record I think).  My BP was a bit high so I was sent to L&D after my appointment for yet another NST, some bloodwork (to check kidney and liver function) and to monitor my BP.  He wants me back in Wed and Friday for NST, that means I now have something everyday.  Bedrest, whatever dude.

Tomorrow I head into the Periantologist.  I am excited to see how big Uno is now, if he’s still measuring ahead 2.5 weeks.  The OB’s also want me to get her opinion on when I should be induced.

  1. YEEWHO! Great news

  2. WOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!! That’s awesome! Not that you’re so busy on bedrest, but the dilation and effacement … WOOOOOOO!

  3. okay, it’s a good thing I’m a smart cookie and have figured out all the acronyms you have on your blog all the time! ha, ha!!!! But sweet also on the dilationa and stuff! So how much longer do you think you’ll have? Will he have to be in ICU for a little while? Good luck lady!

  4. So do the L&D people know who you are by now???

  5. Awesome that you’re already 2 cm dilated! I’m kinda jealous – there was no dilating/effacing going on at my appt last Wednesday. We’ll see if there are any changes at tomorrow’s appt, but I’m not holding my breath.

  6. I could swear there’s something going on, but they don’t check me until next week to do me group b strep test. 😦 I’m jealous.

  7. The whole BED-REST thing is quite amusing.

  8. Yeah for the progression! I hope that everything goes smoothly at all your other appointments! I am so excited for you!
