37 weeks 4 days and all is well!

Still feeling pretty good! Sleep is sometimes elusive, but I did get in a few 4-5 hour stretches of sleep during the night this past week. Now for the check-up: The group B strep test was negative, so that is good news! It means I won’t need antibiotics during delivery. Yay!

Baby’s heartbeat sounds good. Baby is measuring perfectly. Doc says I’m maybe 1 cm dilated and no more effaced than I was last time. All this is good news since it gives baby more time to plump up and may give me more time to wrap a few more things up at work.

Doc estimates baby is in the low 7 lb range right now, which is right on target from where she guessed he was three weeks ago (5.5 lbs, gaining .5 lb a week). At full term, he should be 8 lb something which I expected since I was 8 lb 12 oz and my hubby was 8 lb and a few ounces.

Thanks for all your thoughts and prayers for a healthy baby and wonderful pregnancy. We feel so blessed!

    I was wondering if baby had stayed put! Good luck in these final weeks (or even days).
