Yep, that's right... week 39 (out of 40) begins Wednesday! (I'm due Oct. 18.) We are so close, it could be any day now as I am considered full term at this point. I have a feeling I'll go on or after my due date, though.
We went to our weekly OB appointment this morning. Everything looks great. The baby's head is down and I'm 1 cm dilated. There's a procedure the doctor can do to speed the onset of labor, but we decided to wait another week because Mike needs to finish up a few more flights before taking leave for the birth. I haven't had any painful contractions and I'm feeling very good. Dr. Branton is fairly confident that I'll make it to our appointment next week.
Some additional stats:
- Blood Pressure: 111/70
- Weight gain: 30 lbs so far
- Fundal Measurement: 36 cm
- Baby's Hearbeat: 130 bpm
Thank you for your continued thoughts and prayers as we count down the remaining days!
