I had the tests done today (another trip to base...) My family is already seeing why we're quite tired of living here sometimes lol. I had to be monitored for 20 minutes to watch the baby's heart rate, my heart rate, and contractions. Apparently, I had 2 contractions in that 20 minutes that I didn't even feel. I'm only dilated 1-2 cm. The doctor was talking about inducing Monday or Tuesday (I'd barely be 41 weeks.) But I think I bought some time. If I don't go into labor by Sunday morning, I have to go in for another monitoring/test session. At that time I will meet with the doctor who will be taking over for my doctor (since he's going on vacation.) She will give her recommendation which I'm positive will be an imediate inducement to avoid having a baby on Thanksgiving when "not all the staff will be at the hospital." ugh. We'll see.... I'll give another update when something happens.... or doesn't.

well, at least you've made a bit of progress, even if you don't feel it yet. hopefully she'll be here soon! :)

Oh that's frustrating. You could sit at 1-2 for awhile. At least you are having contractions so something is happening. Any effacement? I hope you go on your own before Thanksgiving. I'll check back when I return from Rome.
