Appt today~

So for the past couple of days I have been feeling like her head is engaged so I said something to my Dr. today about it and she checked, sure enough it is. No wonder I feel like she is going to fall out when I walk.....She said she also feels about 5 lbs, so good news is that since she is pretty good sized and so engaged chances are slim she will turn back around....Wahoo!! I was worried about that becuase she was sitting breech for such a long time. OOOOOO, and I only gained a pound so yay!!I also got to see my fertility Dr. in the hall which was nice and she got to see my big round belly. All in all a good appt, and next appt we get to peek at baby via US so I am pretty stoked about that.

ooh, so exciting! It really isn't long now is it? I fluctuate between feeling like "only 10 weeks until I get to meet my baby!" and "OMG I only have 10 weeks left! Help me!"
I think mine is engaged too, although the MW didn't use those words, just said she could "feel his head" through my cervix, whatever that means...and whenever I sneeze I swear it feels like the baby is going to come flying out! I hate sneezing now because of that.
Sounds like a fun appointment!

Glad you had a great appt!

And wouldn't it be nice if all we had to do was sneeze to have the babies!

Yeah exactly. My pelvic bone, or whatever is down there is sore. Hurts when I walk, hurt when I get up. Its fine when I'm sitting or standing still though.

Yes, she is huge!! My OB said she wouldn't be surprised if she was a 10 lb-er......I am hoping we are off a bit on that estimate.....Although it explains why I am measuring 33 weeks....

2.5 pounds is average for 29 weeks...so 10 pounds might be right for full term! Smile Sounds like your baby is growing awesome! Congrats!!
