Appt today-

37 weeks and 5 days today! Everything is still fine: babies' heart rates were good, fluid is good, no protein spillage, no blood pressure issues... I made a little progress dilating, I'm maybe a fingertip now? Nothing to get excited about though, right now it looks like we're still going to make it to our scheduled c-section. We'll see, I guess. I was 1cm with V for weeks if I recall correctly and nothing really changed... my water broke the day before my scheduled induction. I don't really think anything like that will happen again, but my body is almost begging for it.

I hurt everywhere, my lower belly is swollen like a water balloon and it hurts to the touch. It's gotten really bad. My anxiety is ramping up too. I just keep telling myself that it's just 6 more days. We can handle it, right?

After my appointment we decided to brave taking V to see the new Dragon movie. He loved the first one, and is just obsessed with dragons/dinosaurs. It went better than I expected, considering this was his first movie in an actual theater. He did get antsy and tired (it ran into nap time) but he had fun so that was worth it. It was also a first that we would have otherwise had to table for a long time. It was nice being able to do something little like that before my surgery.

Such a great picture! They're almost ready to come out. Sending so many good thoughts for the delivery and happy first days.

You look great! 6 more days isn't too bad but I can only imagine how you are feeling physically.

Glad to hear he had a good time!!
Six days isn't long at all (says the non achy lady here). I hope the babies wait until your induction date to join you :-)

We LOVED Dragons 2!! It was the second time we had taken Zoey to a movie - definitely a special experience. We're strategic about where we sit. In our theater, we sit in the front row of the back section, if that makes sense... so there is nothing but an aisle in front of us and a bar, so if Zoey gets up, she can't bother anyone. :) It has worked so far... and she does get up. She can never decide who she wants to sit with, or if she wants to sit in her own seat, haha. You look great!! Sooo close!
