What do you girls think?
This is always a tricky thing. As long as you're completely okay with being pg for a few more weeks, I don't think you'd be disappointed with whatever is discovered.
Basically, a check doesn't mean anything. You can be dilated to 4 cm right now and still have weeks left. You could have apparently NOTHING happening down there right now, then go into labor three hours later. So.. it depends on what kind of information you're hoping for.
If you're likely to be disappointed if nothing's going on, I'd probably avoid the check at this appt. Checks can do funny things to your mind, I think.
As for me. I'm nearly 40 weeks (just a few days to go)... and.. *sigh*.. I'm so ready. I think I'm going to have to go for a great big walk later.
Could this be my last pregnancy? Sure. You just never know. Nothing in this life is guaranteed. And I've really, really loved these last two months! I finally grew a belly and I love it! But...
I'm ready. Ready. Ready. Ready.
But nothing's really happening. *sigh*
