37 weeks

So I had my second nst of the week today and then had to rush down the street for my 37 week growth scan. Baby passed nst with flying colors but still no contractions (there was only one out of ten sessions that showed any contractions and nothing since then).

I was really nervous about the growth scan because I thought baby may have flipped transverse. On the way there though baby reassured me all was well as he gave me several loving head butts to the bladder, lol. The scan showed baby is head down and everything looks good. His growth also stabilized so he's only measuring around 6lbs 14oz.

They haven't done any cervical checks so I have no idea if there's any progress going on down there but since I'm not really having contractions I'm guessing there's not much happening. OB says baby can come whenever he wants now...hopefully within the next week we'll start to see some progress.

You are dping such a great job baking this baby! I wasn't checked until labour and if it is any relief, it kept my stress level down!
