38 week appointment update

I went to see the midwife again today. All is well!

My blood pressure is good. I have gained 28 pounds total. I am about 70% effaced, but not dilated yet. Monique said that she thinks the baby is pretty big--her guess for today was 7 1/2 pounds! The baby has not dropped yet, but is head down (which was confirmed today with a quick ultrasound of my lower belly). I had some weird pains the other day which are normal because of where the baby is resting right now. I have had some contractions, but they aren't coming regularly so as to worry about them.

I go back on Wednesday to see my OB.
