Well, I’ve made it to 38 weeks pregnant.
I’m still feeling pretty good, but I’m definitely ready for this little one to come out and join our family.
I had my midwife appointment yesterday and were at the “any time now” stage.
Baby was doing well. His heart rate was at 160 beats per minute which is a little faster than it’s been, but still okay. He’s still head down and in a good position.
I’m currently measuring at 36 cm for fundal height. I was measuring at 38 cm last week which is supposed to indicate that baby has dropped some. This was confirmed by an exam where we learned that our little man is at -1 station (so almost completely engaged where he was previously very high and not at all engaged) and that I am 50% effaced and 2cm dilated.
My blood pressure was low 90/60 and i hadn’t gained any weight.
I’ve nothing terribly exciting to report. I’m just hanging around and trying to finish up the few things that I could do, but at this point there is nothing really left that I HAVE to do. It’s done. Today, I managed to bake a double batch of chocolate cookies that is boxed up to go in the freezer and a lemon poppy seed loaf. I also managed to clean out about half of my fridge…..still gotta get to the lower half. It just needs to be wiped out. I bet you’re just so excited that I shared that tiny tidbit of info with you.
I seem to be alternating between nights were I get an amazing night of sleep and then a night where I feel like I’m awake all stinking night long. Oh well, I’m just trying to enjoy the good nights as much as possible knowing that it’s all about to change in the very near future.
