36 Weeks

Well baby boy has been vertex for weeks so we’re getting there. I’m 1cm dilated and cervix is very soft so when labor starts, it should be quick. I scheduled acupuncture for 39w to help speed things along so I can avoid an induction. Last time acupuncture worked within 48 hours. 

Two weeks ago he was measuring in the 90th percentile so I have another big boy in there. Should be close to (but hopefully under) 9lbs, just like my last little guy. 

Just hoping I can hold him in until at least 39w – help doesn’t arrive until then and were in a new city without family or a nanny. The doctors don’t think I’ll go to 40w so might have to ask help to come sooner. 

Gah! This is really happening! Definitely getting anxious for childbirth even though I’ve BTDT (planning for unmedicated again) but so excited to meet our new little guy. Won’t be long now!
