Time to slow down
Just a quick update on our OB appt this week. We had our first biophysical profile ultrasound and everything check out fine - baby is about 4 lb 10 oz at 33w5d, so a good size. His head is pretty low and my doctor checked my cervix because I am still having lots of Braxton Hicks contractions at night. She said she could feel his head right up against my cervix and my cervix has thinned a little bit, but is still firmly closed. However, she predicts that he will come a couple of weeks early, maybe as early as 37 weeks. It's such a guessing game, but I guess I should be prepared for early labor with this little one. I just want to make it to 37 weeks. My husband is really wanting me to slow down and not be so active. It's really hard for me to sit still for very long. So that's the exciting news for the day, but don't want to get too excited, because I wouldn't be surprised if I end up having to be induced at 41 weeks. We also got to meet with our doula today and we really like her. She encouraged me to write up a birth plan, so maybe I will start that tonight. Getting so close!
