36 weeks! Woot! Who really thought we’d make it here, I sure didn’t.
Had an appt with the doc on Monday, everything is going well. We took our last progesterone shot and are clear to go into labor whenever it feels like happening. I can stop taking all the extra vitamens and stick with just the normal prenatals for the rest of the pregnancy. Cool, we get to be normal for a few weeks. 🙂
We also get to have another peek at the kiddo. Dr. Lim wants another ultrasound to look at the position of the baby. It does not appear that she is head down yet and if she’s not then we get to talk about external cephalic version (basically, trying to turn the baby out of a breech position). or we talk about the possibility of a c-section. Hopefully she’ll flip on her own or we’ll be able to get her to turn.
The whole pregnancy, I haven’t really been able to tell what position she’s in. Now, I finally can and she’s definitely crossways across my abdomen. For the past three days, it feels like she’s trying to burrow out the right side of my stomach. She’s completely ignoring the other side. I keep telling Brian that I feel like I’m having a John Hurt moment. Like at any second she’s going to burst out of my side.
Hopefully she’s not an alien.
