    Had my 36 week appointment yesterday and everything is still going well, although my cervix is high and sealed shut and definitely not open for business. He is head down and low and my pelvic bones are separating which she said is a good thing but it hurts! I can't walk very far and exercising is just about impossible. But I'm not swelling and everyone keeps telling if it wasn't for the basketball under my shirt you wouldn't know I was pregnant. Although, it's not much consolation when I'm limping around feeling like my crotch is splitting in two lol!

    Yes, for a head down baby! You don't want to go through what I went through. lol BUT if baby is breech there is no crotch pain (at least I didn't have any).

    I lost a little bit of my mucus plug yesterday, I know it doesn't mean much but I still got me excited that things are moving in the right direction! My next appointment isn't until Friday and I really hope to have made some progress by then

    Had my appointment yesterday and I'm soft and spongy and a fingertip dilated. Was hoping for more progress but it's better than nothing! Blood pressure was fine and I'm measuring exactly for how far along I am. I can't complain but I'm getting really anxious to meet my little man...

    That's not too bad! You still have time and can jump from that to full labour in a day!

    I feel pretty good, just tired and I've been getting headaches the last couple of days. Hormone changes maybe? No contractions or any more of my mucous plug, but there is a lot of pressure down low and some cramping once in a while. I'm 39 weeks today and I'm hoping to see more action this week!

    I am 40 weeks today and baby is still snug in my belly! Woohoo for 40 weeks, but why am I not progressing

    My appointment on Friday was great, but I'm not dilated at all! I now have an induction scheduled for May 28th, which is 10 days past my due date, but I'm really hoping this little guy comes on his own in the next couple of days. He dropped quite a bit more yesterday and I ended up with pretty bad lower cramping and round ligament pain the sent pain down my legs last night. It actually took my breath away and I couldn't walk. I was hoping that might kickstart some contractions but I feel fine today

    I'm not posting as much even though I'm reading because I have a hard time using my phone and tablet ever since the website upgraded. Not sure why it's so different now, but it makes me not want to use this site anymore!

    Yay for 40 weeks!! Oh and I never really progressed with my first 2. With my first I was induced 2 weeks overdue and was only a fingertip. I feel your frustration. I hope baby makes an appearance before the 28th!

    Woo! I remember getting to 40 weeks and no progress. I was no dilated at all. Not even half a cm. I hope your baby comes soon on his own!!!

    I had cramping again last night. I was able to sleep but it woke me up at least 3 different times with really low cramping and tightening across my lower belly. Of course it stopped once I got up this morning. I still have a ton of pressure and some pain when I walk, so I'll try walking around this afternoon to see if it brings them back.

    Just a few more episodes of cramping but tons of pressure when I stand or walk. I hope this progresses!
