Had my 37-week check up today. Another uneventful one! Feels good to be considered full-term (especially since we learned last week that Stephen is already at a good, healthy weight). I still prefer him to bake a little longer — we just closed on our new house this morning and we’ll be moving over the next week and a half. I’d much rather move, then have a baby. But babies come when they want to!
- His heartbeat was in the 140s…very much his range.
- He’s still head down, which is where we want him. I still feel big flips, so he either goes back to head down in time for my doctor’s appointments or I’m not feeling what I think I’m feeling! Both are possible, but my doc thinks he’s pretty anchored down there.
- (For the girly updates) I’ve started to dilate; just 1 cm and 50% effaced, but that’s no big deal. You can start to dilate and be dilated for weeks before labor starts. So it doesn’t mean much.
- My blood pressure was good – it was this point in my pregnancy with Phinehas that it started rising. So it’s nice to have that not be a concern. At least not yet.
See her next week!
