Excellent news Catherine! SO glad things are still going well for you guys! Keep doing whatever you're doing so well. Sam obviously approves [;)] .
Hope you have a fun and uneventful Christmas! And you're right this is NOT time to be worrying about weight. You enjoy yourself!
Thoughts and Prayers for you and yours, I will be thinking of you over the holidays.

I had a regular OB appt today, after my NST at the peri's (all was good there), BP 120/83 and baby's HR was perfect

Had a step b test, and an internal - 1 cm and 50% effaced at 35w4d, better than i have ever been this early! She asked if i wanted a 'rough' exam, I said go for it -

How I would LOVE to go into labor on my own. She was felt his head too, he is fully engaged!


ps, i refused to get on the scale, lol - the nurse was a little snippy, but i told her if Dr C wants me to get on I will.... Dr C said, no worries! After all this pregnancy has been who cares about your weight icon_smile.gif
