|Excuse my hair! This morning's wet weather was not kind to it.|
We didn't learn much at our 36 week appointment. I've now learned that the doctor's office here won't check patients until 40 weeks or later. I guess the timing of little girl's arrival will just remain that much more mysterious! The midwife estimated her size right now at about 6 pounds and says that she should be 7 or 7.5 at birth. I guess we'll see how accurate that guess is soon enough! She is still head down, with her head very low. I've had some "real" contractions (i.e. painful in front and back) sprinkled here and there, but otherwise there doesn't seem to be much progress toward the big day. The other night I actually had a tetanic contraction that lasted 8 minutes. It was not fun, but I'm happy with anything that helps bring her closer to actually being here.
That's all for the 36 week report!
