Well, we made it to Kansas City last week. I saw my new OB yesterday, and had my first biophysical profile at that visit. My blood pressure is behaving, the baby is actually measuring almost a week ahead, and the new OB is kind and gives me specifics. I get weekly BPPs from now until delivery. Unless something goes wrong, the plan is to run tests at 36 weeks (24 hour, bloodwork). If the numbers are good then, then they'll let me go up until 39 weeks. If I have any signs of pre-eclampsia show up then, then they'll induce at 37. So, sometime in January, I'll have my baby so long as everything keeps looking as good as it does now. It's a real relief! Now to just get through unpacking and Christmas!

Thanks, guys. I'm starting to get a little jittery about birth now. >.> Getting those first few tiny aches that let me know my pelvic girdle's relaxing and stretching to get ready, which makes it feel a lot more real!

My baby hadn't even dropped yet when I was induced last time! And I was so distracted that I don't remember when the aches started except for the sharp "dialation" pangs I got around 36 weeks. So I'm kind of floundering now. :)
