    Default 40w appointment

    I've never made it to my due date before!

    Everything about me looks completely healthy. But, my belly was measuring 35cm (5 weeks behind). It was 37cm 2 weeks ago. The MW asked if the baby felt much lower and I said: "No. He doesn't feel low at all to me this morning." So, the MW decided to do a very gentle, very cautious cervix check to confirm. His head was high (little monkey wiggles back up every night while I sleep). But, my cervix is very soft and very stretchy and at least 2cm. She said she didn't want to see how far it could stretch because of the low placenta. No membrane sweep for the same reason. She didn't mention how effaced I was. Maybe it was hard to tell while being gentle.

    Since my belly seemed small and baby wasn't super low and the fluid was low at my u/s 2 weeks ago, we decided together to be cautious and do an u/s. Thankfully, everything looks great. The fluid is a lot higher than it was 2 weeks ago! It went from 7 to 12, which is a perfect 50th percentile, and there was a great pocket, too. Baby is still at the 39th percentile, like 2 weeks ago, and estimated at 7lbs 9oz. I wonder how all that is hiding in there! They weren't able to see where the placenta ends because baby's head was in the way.

    I have a BPP and appointment next Friday if I somehow make it that far.

    Wow! Happy DUE DATE! Sounds like everything went well. I have always been told that it is hard to get an exact measurement of the uterus at this point in pregnancy... glad you were reassured everything was fine by the u/s. Being 2 cm is great! Come on out little babe. We want to meet you!

    Nope, no news. I've been having some more episodes of contractions and have been losing some plug, but that's it.

    The kids have an activity this morning. I'm skipping it. I can't face a big group of moms right now. I'm already so tired to saying "yes, I'm still pregnant. No, I don't know why he's taking so long. Yes, I'd like him to come soon." My previous latest was 39+4, so this is getting weird.

    I never knew until that moment how badly it could hurt to lose something you never really had. - Missed Miscarriage at 10 weeks - 3/26
