35 Weeks!

Well here's a shot of my lovely 35 week pregnant belly. We're getting SO CLOSE!! I went to the doctor today and not much happened - heartbeat, belly measurement, that kind of thing. Next week she will start checking me and it seems weird to say, but I'm so excited. I like to know if I've made progress. I never have any contractions, but by the time they start checking me I'm always at least 1-2 cm. Plus this is my fourth kid so I've got to be getting somewhere by now right?! Not to mention his head has been locked in position for about a month already. The doctor asked me to bring my birth plan though..... my birth plan = avoid a c-section at all costs! I just like to go with the flow. After having 3 inductions, I'd like to go into labor on my own, but if I make it all the way to the due date I'd be all for getting induced. Epidural: had it with the other 3, definitely not against it, but it didn't help very much last time so we'll just see how it goes. Biggest thing: I don't want a c-section!!!! Is that the crappiest birth plan ever? Oh well. Can't help it.

Ha! your birth plan sounds like mine. I had epidurals with mine and they worked well, but it kind of scared me when, with my fourth child, I couldn't feel my left side until about 2 or 3 am (after my son was born at 1:16 p.m.)....

How exciting...you are so close!!
