38 Weeks

My appointment this past week was on Thursday.  It went great, everything looked/sounded good, GBS was negative, and best of all the midwife confirmed that M is no longer posterior!  I had been pretty sure she’d moved so her butt was on my left and her legs to the right (which is the opposite of how she’s been for the past few months, and I swear it makes her super kicks hurt more because that side hasn’t been conditioned!).  But then I woke up one night and my entire back was killing me because she was all up against it.  I had to get up and do yoga and lay over the birthing ball until I felt she’d moved enough I could actually lay down.  Then I prayed hard that she’d move and woke up again 40 minutes later and she had!  The midwife said she’s in a perfect position now and we just have to wait for her.

I suppose she really could decide to show up at any time now.  I certainly don’t feel like it, but then I never felt like I was close to labor with B either.  Aside from the 2 nights prior of early labor type things.  But I didn’t feel them coming!  Everything is pretty much ready, so I’m just waiting impatiently!

(I keep having to remind myself that technically 38 weeks doesn’t start until Tuesday.  Did I ever mention that, how the letter my RE faxed over said that he’d calculated my due date of November 11 off of an egg retrieval date of February 18?  But my egg retrieval date was most definitely February 20, making my real due date November 13, not to mention at all 4 ultrasounds she measured spot on for a due date of the 13th too.  But the CNM office said they do what my RE says, and not like it really matters.  But by the end of this week I’ll really be expecting labor to start at any time.  I sure hope it does sooner than later.)
