So we had our 40 week (+1 day) appointment today and here’s what we found out:
Lady B is super happy and cozy in there.
Her heart beat was 155 (perfect).
My blood pressure was great – 120 over 78 – and no weight gained from last week to this week (thank goodness, hah)
They are estimating she is 7lbs 14oz (though those estimates can be off by a pound or more…yikes!)
Fluid levels are great.
I’m 2cm dilated and 90% effaced (which is some progress from last week) and if you wanted to know, he stripped my membranes. You can look that up if you are so intrigued (it makes Robert really queasy anytime I mention it, haha) 🙂 It’s just supposed to help kickstart labor.
We got some pictures of Lady B – she is like her mom and dad and likes to have her hands by her face when she sleeps 🙂 So the side of her face is all smooshed up – pretty cute (even for a 3d – which are normally kind of weird)
Last piece of news is that if she doesn’t come on her own beforehand, her birthday will be June 11th! 5 more days max…hallelujah! 🙂
