36 week update

I saw the doc today and she did a more "invasive" exam. I am not dilating at all yet, but my cervix does feel soft! She thinks I will be dilated a little by next week, but who knows. I was also put on the monitor for 20 minutes - they call it a "non-stress" test for the baby. They just monitor the baby's heart rate while he is moving to make sure he isn't under any stress. This is a test for old ladies over 35 like myself. Everything is looking good! I am getting a little anxious for this phase of motherhood to be over - it is getting harder and harder to get around and sleep and I am tired! Luckily, my back has felt a little better this week so I am doing pretty good overall. Only 4 more weeks!
