Baby C Update

Well......I'm not so sure how many more doctor appointments Baby C and I will be having as "one". First, let me start by saying that she should be about this size....

..however, she is measuring more this size!

Yes, that is true...I am 35 weeks, but measuring at 38 weeks. Baby C's heart rate looks excellent and obviously, she is growing really well too! Dr. B did check me today to see if there was any progression on the labor front. I have been feel lots of Braxton Hicks contractions, some making it hard to walk with as tight as my stomach gets. Not painful, but a little uncomfortable. While checking me, he was surprised to discover that I am 1 cm dilated. He could feel Baby C's head, which mean that she is LOW LOW LOW (about 2-3 inches from seeing the light of day). So...what does this all mean? Well, my body is beginning the labor process...THANK YOU GOD that I don't labor hard as so many women do. (I'm lucky that I will walk around dilating while some women lay in pain for hours just to dilate...ouch!) I will go back to the doctor next week to see if there is any more progression. Looks like Baby C will be here before we know it!
