38th Week Appointment

I had my 38th week appointment today.  It was fairly uneventful.  I gained the pound that I had lost back.  My urine was fine and my blood pressure was back to normal.  Zoey was measuring good and had a good heartbeat as well.  He checked me.  I have dilated to a "full centimeter" and I am now 50% effaced.  He said my cervix was still high.  Which I could tell when he practically had his whole arm "in there" checking things out.  Needless to say, I am VERY sore tonight.  I feel like my bones are bruised or something.  Anyway, he said from the way things look, I will still be pregnant come Thanksgiving.  Which is fine by me.  He also added that I "could still go at anytime".  So I guess Zoey is going to be eating Turkey come next Thursday.  I go back Wednesday, since Thursday their offices will be closed.  I told Kent that I wouldn't mind her staying put until at least after next Friday.  I kind of want to hit all the "sales" that day.  I haven't done that in sooo long.  Plus, I want to put the Christmas decorations up.  Zoey probably thinks we don't want her to come at all.  I just want her to come at a time where our lives are so busy and we all can just rest and get settled before the BIG holiday of Christmas comes.  Her daddy also looked at the calendar and said that the 30th or even the 1st of December would be the best bet.  That way he will be off for Christmas.  We'll see.  I'm not going to push her.  I have waited this long...only 13 more days until her due date.  I think I can wait a little longer.
