Good news! I had an excellent visit with my obstetrician today. First of all, she is back from maternity leave and had the nicest things to say about motherhood. She's around my age, so I really relate to her.
Isaac is "very" head down, although I don't feel that he has "dropped" any. Nonetheless, I am dilated one centimeter, so she could easily feel his head (which is just kind of weird to think about - sorry if TMI). And what's better is that my cervix is 50% effaced already! (Again, sorry if TMI)
My blood pressure is still excellent. Due to that fact, she's not concerned with my feet being so swollen that I can basically only wear flip flops comfortably now! Good thing I work at home (and we had warm weather today).
I'm having some contraction-like symptoms, although nothing serious (yet). It's very exciting! She says it could happen any day now. Whoo hoo!
The funny thing is that on the way to the appointment I was fairly 'down in the dumps' from just feeling huge, swollen, etc. I was yearning to feel like my old self -- and go for a nice run. Looks like my NEW self might be granting that wish days earlier than I had thought! We shall see; she said it could still be past my due date, although she didn't think so. One never knows!
