Well, my appt didn't go as well as Leah's...I put on weight AND my midwife suggested I start walking and eat less cookies!!!!!!!! BA HA HA HA! Right! It's the last 7.5 weeks of less guilt ridden eating I'll have this life...you can't take that away from me!!! Ok perhaps I should ease up on the candy though. Perhaps.
Blood pressure seems good...baby's heartbeat was about 135 or so. The midwife agreed, in her monotone sort of way that baby is probably head down. I was cheering inside. She also made it sound like baby won't turn now...that they 'usually stay that way'. I don't know if I believe that although I'd love ot.
I had to pick whether I wanted the shot of oxytocin at birth to start the placenta shearing contractions and I said yes. I guess LESS blood loss is recommended when you're already low in iron.
I had a bunch of questions to ask the midwife but of course I forgot them all. I'll make a list for next time.
