    Still doing well. Most of the time I wouldn't know I was pregnant except for the random movements and occasionally bumping my belly into things, oh and the grunting when I try to bend over!

    I have my 38 week appointment this afternoon, and a chiro appointment in 20 minutes, so I'll update later today.

    Here's my belly as of yesterday:

    You remind me of myself during my first pregnancy. My second has been easy also, but not quite as easy. Your belly looks awesome!

    Looking forward to hearing about your appointment.

    So the chiro appoitment went well. Like I said before, I haven't had many issues, so I mostly see her as a preventative thing (seems to be working, although I have nothing to compare it too). Our insurance covers it, so I figured it was worth a shot, and I do enjoy the shoulder rubs.

    My midwife appointment was good too. I met my back up midwife for the first time. My second mw is off in February, so I have a third for if I'm late. I'm hoping to have this baby in January though, since I've built a nice relationship with both my midwives so far and look forward to having them at my birth.

    My weight is at 160, about 20 lbs up from pre-pregnancy. Blood pressure was 106/64, and baby's heart rate was around 140. She measured me at 36 weeks, but my other mw measure 37 last week, so it just shows how it's an imperfect science. She did comment on how my belly was lovely to poke, she could easily tell were most of the body parts were, bumb front and centre, head down, feet to the right, and an elbow or something on the lower right. She said they don't normally worry about anterior or posterior until labour starts, so that's good.

    I picked up the pool from the office too, while I was there. I wasn't sure which one I was getting, since my mw had requested it for me. They have an inflatable one and a trough-like one. So when I asked, the admin told me it was the inflatable one! It's a La Bassine, so now I have it in the car waiting to be inflated whenever I decide it should be.

    I've been drinking my RRL tea, and got some evening primrose oil today, so I'm going to start taking it orally as of now, and vaginally after the weekend. Next week I'm going to step up the other natural induction techniques (I'm really hoping for a January babe!).

    So do your midwives support the natural induction methods? (I assume they do since you're doing them.) I may start doing that around 37 weeks b/c of my past history with eclampsia and HELLP syndrome, as long as she's full term, the sooner she comes out, the better. I guess I'll find out from you if it works!

    Yup, and they mentioned a couple they can do too, should it get to that point.
