39w6d appointment update

Well, I'm dilated to a 2 and not too effaced, but that's okay because I know things can change in no time!

She asked me if I have been feeling the baby move, and I told her it's been definitely way less. She decided to put me on the electronic fetal monitoring (you know, the same two bands they use when you're in labor) for 20 minutes. At first she was sleeping (the heartrate was steady at 120) and then they woke her up. The heart rate went up and down as it was supposed to, more like a rollercoaster with her movement. Needless to say, she passed the test. I even got to see some small contractions on the screen!

I have been feeling contractions ever since, but nothing that hurts and there's no pattern.

My midwife said I should have my baby on Friday because that's when she's working next. I am okay with any of the next three days because my aunt (L & D RN) works tomorrow and Thursday.

I scheduled my appointment for next week, but hopefully I don't have to go!
