Happy EDD to me! :D

I fully expected to see my EDD, but still exciting to me! She'll be here in 2 weeks or less!!! (My practice thanks to their hospital and insurance rules won't let me go past 42 weeks since I'm planning a VBAC.) Had a boring midwife appointment today. Vitals great. Measuring a few weeks smaller proving what I already knew - Zoe dropped BIG time this past weekend! Zero concerns. No internal since it won't tell us anything about when I'll go into labor. Since I am VBACing if I'm still pregnant next Tuesday I'll have a NST in office with a quick u/s. I'll also have to see an OB to go over those results, but it's the OB I saw early in my pregnancy to talk about VBAC and RCS risks. He's VERY pro VBAC and very relaxed, so I'm not worried about him finding a "problem" that isn't really a true issue. My favorite midwife is on call the rest of this week and weekend, so I keep telling Zoe that NOW is a great time to come! The 2nd on call midwife is the one I saw today and I really like her too. Smile
I'm doing lots of visualizations and positive affirmations (hypnobabies) that I AM going to go into labor tonight and it'll be a fantastic VBAC. I'll repeat this every single day if need be!!!!

Pictures from today:

ETA: I'm still itching from the PUPPS, but it is slowly improving. No complaints other than gee walking is rather difficult and painful at times. Lol

Only one thing getting in the way....my husband is on nights this week! The only time I see him the toddler is awake too and he's waaaay too much trouble to leave alone. Maybe Saturday if Zoe is still hanging around. lol

Ohh I hope that she comes soon, what happens at 42weeks? Induction or c-section?

They usually try a foley induction first. I am going to be talking to the OB at my 41 week appt (if I make it!) about what else they feel safe doing before going to a RCS.
