2 more weeks!

2 more weeks until my due date! I just had my third ultrasound and baby is still measuring very large with an even larger head (the ultrasound pic shows she's allll cheeks!). I suffered from macrosomia with my first pregnancy (he was 10 pounds 0 ounces and 23 inches long) so it seems it's happening again. My OB says my cervix is too strong and won't dialate or thin so she gave me a very vigarous exam yesterday... to which I'm still bleeding from... but if I'm still not progressing by my next appointment I'm going to get another ultrasound to determine how much longer I can wait for her.  I guess her head is so large she's actually stuck in my pelvis already, so she won't drop... same as my first pregnancy :(  Her amniotic fluids were okay as of last week so we'll see! I had to have an emergency c-sec with my first child because eventually his fluid levels were too low. I was hoping for a VBAC but it's looking rather slim at this point...

What's your latest news mommas?

I've got two weeks left too! I also had a "vigorous exam" today and actually had to stay longer so they could monitor my bleeding. My doctor estimated that my baby girl is already about 8 pounds and brought up the idea of having an elective c-section if I go past my due date. I'm not too excited about that... I had a growth ultrasound done at 36 weeks. She said if I make it to 40 weeks, they'll do another growth ultrasound.

I'm somewhere between one and two cm dilated, and about 60% effaced. I've been having regular contractions since last Thursday. I'm so uncomfortable, and I'm so ready to have this baby! :)
