All's GREAT! Kellen's measuring a bit large, still (forgot to ask, we were talking about delivery and everything else) but not so much to be alarming (my guess is maybe a week or 2. His heart rate was strong and solid, and I was even impressed with the rhythm

BP is great! By now, with DD, I was swelling badly, and BP was nearing 140/95 (PIH officially diagnosed). Not this time! Doc even says she'd be surprised if my bp really gets high... she said it MAY increase over the next few weeks, but probably not to pre-e levels because of how well things are going now (but who's to say!)

I never look at the scale, but she said it looks good.

And, for my questions (and the answers)...

He's probably still breech, but all balled up at belly button and lower, which is why my stomach is hanging so low.

Not sure if I have to preregister, she said not to, but the hospital's website says to call, so I'll find out about that and do it if they need it.

She said there are more July/Aug/Sept babies, but not so many that we'll have any issues at the hospital and we're always guaranteed our private room for birth and post-partum (I thought it was the same room, and it may be, if I remember right).

EPO: no harm no foul, but nothing substantial proves it's usefulness, so I'll try it anyway



Depending on bp or a number of other things (depending a great deal on the Bishop's score) if we have to induce, the target dates are Sept. 3 or 6 (check in in the morning and baby sometime that day!) so, we'll have to see how everything looks.

As I get closer, I may change my mind on induction and go for it! If I'm at least 2 cm dilated and 50% effaced like I was with DD, it'll be very tempting because it was SOOOO easy and I didn't need them to break my water, or use pitocin or anything, just the simple little pills (not even all of them) inserted. Toooo easy!

So, I'm totally thrilled that we're on the same page and everything looks good! I'm still worried about breech, though She said in 2 weeks, when she starts the cerv check and does the Strep B swab, she'll have a much better idea and we'll start to really talk about what to do if he's being stubborn.

Thanks, Anna! Yep... if we do choose to go with an induction Sept 3, for all kinds of reasons, WOW, that's not too far away like... 6 weeks, 2 days! I can't freaking believe it! My to-do list is WAAAY too long. I'm seriously asking for help to get all this done, even by hiring some jobs out.

I hope he decides to flip for you! Glad to hear the BP is still going well. 32 weeks is when mine started going up last time, so I am anxious to see how things are next week.

Oh, and I've heard that there are a few yoga poses that people swear by to get baby to flip. Plus, some doctors know how to do external manipulation to get a baby to flip. Hopefully, though, it won't come to that and he'll turn all on his own
