38 week appointment

So, baby is in LOA position (YAY!) and I guess that is head I'm feeling b/c his head has dropped down considerably (I thought it was hands). Other than that, she is guessing he's right at 8 lbs. now so I may not be getting much relief from him dropping down b/c he's just filling up the space (she didn't say this, just my theory). My iron is still going up and I was spilling NO glucose-- so we're all good there, too. The hot flashes are normal and in response to me being tired, she said she is a firm believer that if my body is needing rest, I should take it b/c perhaps I'm storing up energy for labor.

Sounds like a great appt! If only your other kids would just chill for the next several days so you can rest as much as you like, right? Hope you get the chance to rest up before labor kicks in!

I am actually floored by how much my hubs has stepped up to the plate! I keep waiting for one of them to accidently call him mommy! Smile He's a teacher so he's home this summer and he keeps telling me I need to have the baby next week so he doesn't have to go to all those pesky beginning of school year meetings, lol, I think he's trying to do his part to insure I go into labor then. Smile
