Mw appt today

Had my first mw appt in about two months today! I had to suspend my prenatal care until eh found a job.

All is well. I passed my glucose test. Baby is head down, moving like crazy, and has a strong hb!

The only trick is that baby is already REALLY low, so the mw will want to do a cervical check at 36 weeks to get an idea of how close I am at that point. I haven't gone early before, but we agreed that the baby is low enough that I probably won't experience lightening or much prelabor. And since my last labor was fast, those warning signs can be valuable.

In feeling the baby's position, the mw also thinks this baby has long legs and is a little bony at this stage. So her bet is on long and skinny.
