Today’s appointment went very well. My blood pressure is great, I’m measuring perfectly, my weight gain is right on target, and baby M’s heart rate was great too. I had my Group B strep test done today (all of you women who’ve had kids before know how fun that is) so will just wait to hear about the results. My nurse practitioner (whom I cannot possibly say enough good about) checked me today and I am starting to dilate a teeny, teeny bit and I’m thinning out too. She said anytime after this Sunday when I turn 36 weeks is considered to be well within the safety zone and that baby would be just fine anytime after that.
Now….for the not so stellar news…..baby M was breech today!! My nurse practitioner feels confident that he will flip back over by the time I deliver. I’m certainly hoping she is right about that, because it will mean a definite c-section if he doesn’t. I’m really hoping for a VBAC this time around, so it is imperative that he flips back over! If you feel so inclined, please say a prayer (or two) for me that this baby gets head down in a hurry!
My appointments are now every week, so I go back on Wednesday. I will be posting a belly pic this weekend and will update you after my appointment on the 18th.
