appointment today

GREAT appointment today! Iron is steadily going up, at 10.7 now so .3 more and I'm in the safe to deliver at the birthing center. I'm 37 weeks, so I'm already far enough along to deliver there-- YAY! Baby has moved! He is head down and facing my back, she put it down as LOT but she pretty much said he is anterior and that his head is very low but still moveable-- so I'll be working on keeping him in this position. I am thrilled at this as I really paid attention to staying on my feet, not reclining, and doing lots of pelvic rocking this week to get him to move. Biggrin She guessed that he weighed about 7 and half lbs. right now and thinks I'll go all the way to my due date, maybe a few days early but she doubts it since my others were a day and four days over. So that's that, just the waiting game now. (TMI) I've gotten my yeast infection taken care of and the contractions I was having have subsided. Still getting the BH and they are pretty strong and low but not nearly as frequent as they were before treating the YI.

I am drinking 1/2 cup, or more, more won't hurt u, of chlorophyll a day along with taking three blood builder tablets, 9 alfalfa tablets, and two droppers full of yellow dock (to help you absorb iron better) a day along with eating iron-rich foods. About to start some dessicated liver pills as well.
