I am 37 weeks and 1 day pregnant right now. I went to the doctor monday(4/6) and was dialated to a 1, i had a checkup today and was at a 3. Since the baby is measuring at least 3 weeks ahead, the doctor told me to come back monday (4/13) for a checkup and then if i haven't had the baby yet, they are going to induce Tuesday(4/14) at 7am. I am so excited! I have been having contractions every 10 minutes for the past 2 hours. They said to go to L&B if my contractions are every 5 minutes....also, with my other 3 kids, as soon as the doc set an induction date, i went into labor within 2-3 days....

so i have 6 days or less til my newest baby boy is here!!! YAY

I thought pregnancy was supposed to last forty weeks. Hope everything goes well! Congratulations on the wee one.

it is, but 2 weeks ago the baby was measuring at 7lbs, and last week at 8lbs. I have already had 2 9lb babies, so thats not a problem, but he seems to gain a pound a week, and if i went to 40 weeks he would be close to 12lbs...as it is, he bearly has any room to move, and keeps his feet in my right ribs, his butt is by my left ribs and his head is almost all the way down...(oh, btw, my 3rd baby was 9lb, 1 oz and was born at 38 weeks...he was also bruised from running out of room, and this baby is actually bigger than any of my others.)
