Doctor's Appointment

Had a great appointment this morning. Gained another 3 lbs, which brings the total up to 17. Not bad considering the crap I eat. BP was 110/70. She felt around and pronounced him HEAD DOWN. Woot! His head's right on my bladder, she said. Then, she took out the measuring tape and went to measure me and then paused and said, "Let's wait a minute." I asked what for and she said I was having a contraction. What??!! Really?? I didn't feel it at all, but when she showed me what it looks like and feels like from the outside, I'd felt and seen that before, but we thought it was the baby moving around in a weird way. After it was over, she measured me and I'm measuring perfectly. So, now my homework is to lay down after work and see if I'm having any contractions and call her if I'm having more than 8 in an hour. I'm fairly sure I'm not.

My doc used to make me have a contraction after she checked me. Getting excited?
