38ish week appointment

Everything looking good. BP diastolic a little high, 109/91, but I'm not worried. Baby sounds good, weight the same. She checked me, and I'm 1 cm, still long, but not overly high (cervix position). Again, doesn't concern me, I really need to try to make it Sept 21. Thats my first day of mat leave, and they have been unable to replace me, so my work partner is freaking out. We have new staff starting next week, and I am scheduled to teach both the 19 and 20. Literally, if I have the baby before then I may have to strap him/her to my chest and come in anyway!

She did confirm that second plus babies often don't drop till labour, so she's not concerned that the head is still high. Have had a lot of discharge and some cramping since the exam, but I know that is normal. All in all a good appointment, and I'm sure I'll still be pregnant next week!
