So last week, I had my 38-week check up. I’m just now getting a moment to document it. Yeah, about an hour before my 39-week check up appointment. Sign of the busyness of life, I guess.
- Appointment was good!
- My weight gain? 4 pounds. Not good. I blame it on lots of fast food with the move.
- Measuring on track.
- Dilated to 2 cm and 75% effaced (not radically different than the previous week).
- His heartbeat was in the 140s.
- I didn’t think I’d been having contractions or anything, but she felt one while she was examining my tummy. So I guess I have and not really registered it.
She’ll do an elective induction at 39 weeks, if I want. I don’t want. We’ll let this one determine his own birthday, unless there’s a medical reason to intervene.
