I had an appointment with my midwives today. It was cut short due to another woman's water breaking, but I was still there for 45 minutes. BP and urine was good, baby is measuring well. I had told them that I felt that either the baby went through a growth spurt or had shifted positions because I just felt like I was carrying a bit different. She said that I was actually measuring the same as last time, but about 2cm lower... so he's obviously settled a bit lower, which I guess is a good thing. I was supposed to have a home visit this week, but due to a bunch of mama's having babies the past few days they are swamped with PP visits, so my home visit will be next week instead. I don't mind at all, babies take priority!!! I did get weighed this week, hadn't been weighed since week 18... and since then I've gained 9lbs. I do know my weight from exactly one month ago (I had gotten weighed with Kate and the ped's office, since she refused to be on the scale by herself, haha), and since then its only been 1lb. I'm sorta shocked since I've always gained over 30lbs with each pregnancy. This one really is all BELLY.
My first was induced on my due date (my water broke, contractions didn't start after 12 hours, I didn't know any better and rushed to the hospital as soon as my water broke!). My second was born the day after her due date, and my 3rd was born at 41 weeks.
I know I'm going late... although I won't lie... it would be a nice surprise to have a baby come a couple days early!!!
