Everything is going well. Baby's HR was 144. He's in a great position for birth and his movements have slowed which is a sign that he is more neurologically developed. No internal checks (my MW doesn't like to do them unless you are in labor) so I have no idea on my progress anymore. The most interesting part was the weight estimate ~10 pounds!~

They were going to send me for an ultrasound to check on everything but decided to wait until next week when I'm late. Apparently, they would be required to "act differently" since the baby is large. Since the last thing I want is a c-section, I'm happy to wait! I'm feeling like it's going to be in the next few days I meet my LO. Lord knows I'm so ready to meet him! I just feel different today and hope that means things are going to start soon. I found out they will let me go 3 weeks late as long as me and baby are doing well. I really don't want to be pregnant for 3.5 more weeks!!

Thanks for reading!

It always sucks to think you could go another 3.5 weeks, but in reality, most women go long before then. I hope it is soon for you!

A friend was told she was having a 10lb baby and it was barely 8lbs. A woman on another board here just had a home birth of an 11+ lb baby ROAR!!!

Bounce on your ball, walk a lot, and think positive thoughts. I hope your intuition is right and your lil one is on his way out

Glad to hear that things are going well. Hang in there, I bet your little man will make his appearance soon! My DD was about 11 days late and I swore that kid was never going to come out no matter what I did to try and get things going.
Keep us posted!

Thanks, Jaidynsmum, for the beautiful siggy!
