I have now officially reached the 36 week mark, which means I have the delight of hanging out with Dr. D, downtown, every single week. Today was also my first...exam. Here are the results:
- Nora is growing, and will probably be bigger than her sister. For the first time in my pregnancy (either pregnancy, actually), I am measuring right on, and not small. I grew 3 cm in two weeks (average is 1cm/week), and gained another 2 pounds.
- Blood pressure is good
- Nora's heart rate was 156, higher than it has been in weeks. She's been a sleepyhead at her appointments, and evidently she was enjoying her breakfast today.
- Nora is being a good little girl, and is currently head down. I've suspected as much the past few days, as I am no longer having to move body parts out from under my rib cage. Dr. D thinks she'll stay that way, and I'm thankful.
- The contractions I've been having for the past four months have done nothing to dilate me. Hopefully they'll start working on something soon!
