Bottom’s Up!!!

Filed under: baby's progress — by Lauren on November 6th, 2008 @ 9:35 pm

We had a pre-natal appointment yesterday, and Baby Girl is back to a head down position!  The doctor said that she is nicely settled into my pelvis now, so hopefully she’ll stay that way.  He did an internal exam, and I am already 60-70% effaced, though not dilating yet.   I’ll be 36 weeks on Monday!

I’ve been feeling a little off this afternoon and evening.  I had an hour or two of severe discomfort just above my pubic bone.  It didn’t feel like contractions, more like intense pressure, probably from her head.  It was strong enough to make me involutarily say “Ouch” out loud and stop being able to walk.  I sat on the floor kind of bent over and that seemed to help.  I guess that position shifted her off of whatever she was pressing against.  Tonight I’ve been feeling a little achy and tired, and I’ve had quite a few big Braxton-Hicks contractions.

    You are slacking here. I’ve been waiting for like 5 days now to read a new post. Put some videos up!

    Woo Hoo for head down, hope she stays that way!

    Me too! It looks like she’s settled in for the long haul. Now she just has to get moving! There is NO room left for her in there.

    Yay!!! That’s great news. Good luck with the last few weeks (days?)! I went earlier with Noah than I did with Braiden. 🙂

    I love all the new posts!

    Thanks, Saina! I hope this baby does the same as Noah and shows up a little earlier than her older sibling as well.
