My 41 week midwife appointment was today. We talked a lot about my fears of an induction, and she said that we actually have until week 42 to worry about that. She thinks the baby will come this week though. The baby had been in a great position for birth, then she moved, and now she's moved back to the good position so MW said to call her ASAP because it could go from "I wonder if this is it" to "Oh crap here comes the baby" really quickly.

She did a thorough listen on the doppler, and said Evie is doing everything that she needs to be doing as far as her heart rate goes, so that was really reassuring. The whole appointment was basically spent reassuring me that everything is okay LOL We didn't talk about any natural inductions because MW said she is pretty certain it will happen this week, just judging on where the baby is and where she has her head etc.

The sore spot is just bruised muscle from when the baby stuck her foot up in my ribs last month, and she said the hot flashes that I've been having at night are typical for a pregnancy that goes this late. She says that she thinks the baby will be long but kinda skinny, which Jonah was so that won't be a surprise As long as she's not more than ten pounds like in all these crazy dreams LOL

Click the blinkies!

Thank You, Pattyandthemoos, for my beautiful siggy!

((HUGS)) I remember how hard it was for me when I got to 41 weeks with Kate's pregnancy. I remember feeling like my body was failing. Looking back the feelings seem silly, but at the time it was very real and I was very discouraged.

Lots of hugs to you now!!
