Exciting 38 week appt!

So I just had my appointment this morning, and it went so well!! Smile

My midwife is very excited. She said everything I've been experiencing sounds great and it sounds like my body and baby are getting ready for a birthday! She said that my belly looked like the baby had dropped, and after feeling around (she had to wait forever and get in there between my BH lol), she said the baby's engaged and her head is very firmly in my pelvis. I measure right on at 38 weeks, and her heartbeat was great. She was being quite a busy baby in there and moving around a ton, and we heard her heart rate accelerate during her dancing and slow down when she stopped, it was cool Smile my blood pressure is still nice and low too, which I am thankful for!

Anyway she wouldn't make any predictions haha, but said that given all my contractions, the shooting pains in my cervix, and the baby's position....I MIGHT get to my due date :eek: and she said she certainly doesn't expect me to go over Biggrin so exciting!!!! I am due in 11 days so baby could really come any day now!!

Oh wow - that is super exciting!!! How great that your LO has been so busy progressing. I'm sure all of that is nice to hear. My OB just tells me he bets I will go overdue since DS was overdue. Boo on him!

Thanks ladies! I'm so excited, and a little nervous Smile Carolyn, I have two more casseroles I want to make (lol) but outside of that I am ready!!

I haven't moved much from the couch or the bath today though. Don't know if it's my nerves or what, but contractions/BH/whatever is going on down there is really ramping up this afternoon. Yikes!

Sounds like a great appt! I'm sure the contractions are worse today from being checked. Maybe it will lead to something though!

Luckily I didn't have to get a cervix check Biggrin just on my abdomen! I guess that's bad enough though, when she's pushing around on there it usually brings them on if didn't have them already :rolleyes:
