we had an ultra sound this morning as well as my first weekly appointment. The u/s was quick. they just check for fluid, size of baby, heart beat. All checked out good. She's weighing in at 5 lbs 10 oz so far (typical for 36 weeks) If she puts on 1/2 lb a week, she'll be just under 8 lbs at birth. We did get some photos from the u/s but they are quite grainy. I posted them anyways. It was neat to see her position in my belly. As i suspected, her butt is up near my right ribs and her head is down. Placenta to my left side. Which is why my belly looks a little lopsided to me. baby is all on the right side making it higher than the left. At one point during the u/s we saw her foot up near her head! She's running out of room.
The OB appointment went well. blood pressure good. weight, err. urine, good. they did the culture for strep b and i'll find out the results at next weeks appointment.
Doc did internal exam and said I was softening but hadn't dialated or thinned out yet. Just shy of 36 weeks, doc said softening was right on target for my delivery date.
