My last two midwife appointments

Last week’s appointment: I never did do an update for last week’s appointment. In case you care to know here are the details. Urine was negative for glucose but I did have a trace of protein. My weight was up a total of 11 pounds from pre-pregnancy. My blood pressure was 118/80. The baby’s heartrate was 140-150bpm. My fundal height was 39 weeks. (I was 38w 4d that day.)

Today’s appointment: Our appointment went very well today. I can hardly believe I’m only 3 days away from my EDD!!! My urine was negative for both protein and glucose. I’m down 1 pound from last week making me just 10 pounds over my pre-pregnancy weight. My blood pressure was 116/72. The baby’s heartrate was 148 bpm. My fundal height is 41 weeks. (I’m 39w 4d today.) The midwife says the baby has moved down!!! I’ve been having sporadic contractions for about 2.5 weeks now. It won’t be long now!!!

My next appointment is scheduled for next Tuesday at 12 noon. I’m praying I won’t need to make that trip! 🙂

  1. Hi Leah…How exciting!! I am always interested in how your appointments go! I am also interested in knowing exactly what is involved in a home birth…you know step by step stuff..maybe you could tell me after this new Terry arrives 🙂 I hope that you are feeling good…and not too tired out with your canning. You are absolutely amazing and I never hear you complain or anything…an attitude to strive for –for sure! Keep us updated…I can hardly stand it!

  2. Hi Leah. Any baby yet? If not-HOLD OUT! I am coming up for the week with the children and Abby has graciously opened up her home for a friendly visit just like the olden days. That is, IF you are free on Wednesday night. I am not sure the details but do hope you are able to come if at all possible!
