I had two appointments yesterday for the little man. Everything went well.
The first appointment was at the Birth Center with Lesley (one of the midwives). I’ve now been seen by both midwives and love them both! My uterus is measuring about 2 weeks “behind” but it’s probably because he’s already sitting so low. She said he feels like an average baby. I’ve gained a total of 28 pounds so far. Pretty darn good! His heartbeat sounded good and my blood pressure was great. He’s head down still. Yay! I had the group b strep test done and hopefully those results will come back with good news!
I go back next Monday. We’re on weekly appointments now until he arrives. Next week I also start drinking Raspberry Leaf Tea and Evening Primrose Oil. I can’t believe it’s almost that time already.
My second appointment was with the backup obstetrician who will attend the birth if I have to get transferred to the hospital. He is great and made me feel completely at ease. I know he’ll take good care of me if I must get transferred.
Anyway. Tomorrow begins my 9th month! And there’s still stuff to do. Such as: install the carseat, pack our bags, buy a glider, and finish our Bradley classes. That should be enough to keep me busy. 🙂
