So I had my 34 week check up this am. It went really well! I got an ultrasound to check the baby's position. To my surprise, baby is actually in the right position for labor, head down and facing up! So no back labor...unless she moves between now and then. I also didn't have any sugar in my urine - a first this pregnancy! (No protein either, yeah!)

At my next appointment I will be getting tested for GBS - I really hope I am negative this time around. I believe all those antibiotics during my first delivery contributed to our thrush issue- I really don't want to repeat that.

Oh, and I finally preregistered for the hospital today. I'm finally starting to pick up steam and nest more.

Time is flying!

That's awesome!
I've been trying to remember, is the proper position when their face is facing your tummy, or your spine? I am thinking their face is supposed to face your spine, but I can't recall.

From everything I've read, you want them facing your spine ?? But I could be wrong

I just read online the optimal position is facing your back, not your stomach. It's called OA, or occiput anterior. She said I was in this position. Guess I got mixed up when posting! So baby was head down, facing down!

Glad baby is in the right position and thanks for clearing up the face up thing. My baby is in head down facing my back too but the doctor said "you can sneeze" (jokingly I think) and the baby can then decide to turn breech.... this happened during delivery in my DD's case. That's how we ended up with a frank breech our first go around lol.

Yes, you want baby to come out facing your spine, not "sunny side up". It's actually when they are facing up and it is their back next to your back that is painful and causes back labor. You want them facing down. However, most babies will rotate during labor and aren't in utero face down to begin with, most are sideways so they only have to rotate a quarter of the way so to speak.

^^Cool, I actually did not know that!

Mine is currently facing my left side, head down, with her spine along my right side. She has been that way for several weeks now. Interesting how she might stay that way and just turn a quarter to get out. At least I hope!

Yay for a great appt. I also think 34 weeks sounds so far along. Anything past where I am sounds so close. Lol. But it is great the appt went so well and everything is checking out nicely. Hard to believe that in just a couple weeks people will start popping out full term babies!!
