At my appointment this week I was 3cm dilated and 70% effaced, so I have made a little progress in the right direction. Baby's heartbeat was in the 140's I am up 28lbs and via ultrasound the baby is weighing 7lbs 3oz (6oth percentile). They did notice from my last two ultrasounds that his intestines look dilated so they are sending me to a specialist with better ultrasound equipment to get a closer look. The doctor says that everything else looks normal, so it is probably nothing, which is what we are hoping for. The dilated intestines could mean a possible obstructed bowel, which if it turned out to be could require a surgery after he is born. My next appointment is Monday, so hopefully we will get good news! I will update more then!
