I haven't made any progress worth mentioning in the dilation department but I never do. I don't think I've ever gone into active labor with a number higher than 2. It's always 2 to 10cm in 45 minutes to 2 hours. Seriously intense but short.
My weight gain was a surprisingly low 2 pounds in almost 3 months. I feel gigantic so that was a bit of a shocker. I certainly gained plenty in the early months and I'm healthy so no seemed to care or give it a second thought.
She gave me forms to fill out to ease admissions and stressful interactions with nursing staff. I asked questions of concern such as: Can I have a hep lock and still labor in the water? (I tend to dehydrate and develop a fever.) Yes. We plan on refusing the newborn Hepatitis vaccine since my last infant had a serious adverse reaction; is this a problem? Nope.
Another appointment is scheduled for next week. Hopefully, I can skip it and go straight to delivery. :)
