I had my appointment this afternoon. I'm due this Sunday and we're all sure I'm going to meet that day haha.

All is great, my BP was 120/78. So I'm staying in a good range. Glucose was neg and Protein had a trace. I gained a lb. So I'm down a total of 14lbs, after the 3 I gained back. Boo on that.

I'm measuring 38 weeks still, so he's slowing down and he has just a wee bit of wiggle room left for his head. Not much but a small bit. His heartbeat sounded great but I didn't get the bpm. He's laying with his back to my right side right now.

So now we're just waiting haha. We talked about how I was feeling and everything. Basically done and would like to be able to sleep better. She told me she had a baby this morning but was afraid to tell me because the mom was 10 days early haha. I got a good laugh out of that. We joked a lot and it was just a good appointment all around.

We discussed nursing and the problems I had with Dane. How i'm determined to have a much more successful go at it this time. She gave me an *** ton of mothers milk tea samples to start drinking after hes born haha. Seriously, a ton! So I'll probably go get fenugreek this weekend and have that on stock again. Buy a few more boxes of the mothers milk tea and just chug chug chug. We're much more determined this time, we don't want to be where we were with dane. Even though we made it far with him he weaned himself before I had hoped. So we're hoping to not supplement at all.

So now we are just waiting for him. Hopefully soon

Sounds like a great appointment! I am drinking Mother's Milk tea while reading this Max has been a super slow gainer so I'm working hard to get my supply to a place where it's meeting his demands.

I can't wait to hear all about your little guy's arrival - so soon!

Glad everything is going well. I honestly can't believe you are so close. My goodness, didn't you just announce your pregnancy last week? LOL The past few months have flown by to me... of course I'm sure these few final weeks have been dragging for you.
