I had my last "monthly" appointment today, yay. And it was a good appointment, double yay! I've gained 14lbs overall, blood pressure was actually not outrageously high (I have white coat syndrome, it has been fine at home), baby's heart rate is 155, baby is measuring right on track and is head down but not engaged. My doctor says she won't start doing checks until 39 weeks unless we have reason to worry before then. And I go back in two weeks, which suddenly makes things seem much closer.
ANNNND, I found out that the hospital I will be delivering at has beefed up it's security and privacy policies greatly since I last gave birth (almost 7 years ago, yikes!) and I won't have to worry about any unexpected, uninvited visitors. Yay! I think I've mentioned before issues we've had in the past with certain "family" members, I had been super concerned for many reasons, mostly because I was concerned about what would happen with my blood pressure during delivery anyway, let alone if someone I didn't want there was to show up. This was a HUGE relief. But, just to play it even safer, I'm confiscating DH's cellphone when I go into labor. Just in case.
Yay, that's great news
Glad the family won't be a problem and baby is head-down.
I've gained about 14 lbs overall too and my baby's heartrate is in the 150's always.
It will be interesting to find out what we both get.
My doctor, and every random stranger on the street, seem to think it is a girl. I've had I don't know how many people tell me I'm having a girl. I don't know if I quite believe them but I'm getting anxious to find out

It was such a relief to find out this might be the case. I've had two bad deliveries (in two births) because of the same person. You better believe this time around I am doing what I can to ensure that I get ONE that's not ruined by the same intruder.
Glad to hear you had a good appointment! I am glad you won't have to deal with unwanted visitors while/after you deliver. Honestly, I don't even know my own hospital's policy on that. Better ask next appointment!
