Yea!!!! I’m dilated to 1 cm and in the doctor’s words “effacing nicely.” We’re finally making progress. I gained 3 pounds in the last week (up to 7 pounds above my pre-pregnancy weight), but the doctor said it was most likely just water gain because of the swelling I’m having. My blood pressure was up some more to 130/88, but they didn’t seem concerned since it is still within a normal range. We have another appointment for next Tuesday, September 28th, if you haven’t made your appearance by then. We’re at between 1 week 6 days and 2 weeks 5 days to go. We love you little one!
