So I went to my own doctor today. My weight stayed the same (thank goodness), and I dilated another centimeter, bringing me to 5 cm and 90% effaced. The doctor said, "You have got to be kidding me. You're still pregnant?" when she saw me in her exam room. She said, "I know I've told you this before, but just to reinforce...when you start getting contractions, do not wait. Call us en route."
He weighs 8 1/2 lbs.
At the end of the visit, she said, "Go into labor this week!"
"I'll try," I told her.
