Fortunately the dust has settled a bit after our week of chaos. My last midwife checkup was about as interesting as the one before. The good thing was that I'd gained back 2 of those 3 pounds I lost. The not-so-good thing was that my physical measurements dropped from 36.5 weeks to 31 weeks in just one week. To make sure everything was okay fluid level-wise, I was scheduled for an immediate check with the ultrasound. After a bit of a scare on my part (afraid of being induced again), my levels were plenty high and I was told the baby had just dropped even lower in my pelvis. I didn't think that was possible, as low as she already was. So it was good news in the end. We'll see what the next appointment brings!
Then over the weekend (technically the first day of week 39), we travelled back about 2.5 hours west for my cousin's wedding. I was very anxious about possibly going into labor while we were out of town. There is a decent hospital about 30 minutes or so from where we were staying so it wouldn't have been the end of the world. However, I'd much rather be at the hospital I'm familiar with, with my midwives and doula available. By God's grace, Abigail held out and the trip was great. I got to see several aunts and uncles I haven't seen in years. Most of them haven't even had the chance to meet our youngest two kids in person (they've only seen them on Facebook) until then. It was a joy!
Otherwise, there hasn't been much of anything new and exciting to announce. Certain physical things have been happening body-wise that make me think Abi will be joining us sooner than later, but my babies like to confuse and surprise me. So we'll see how/when she decides to come!
Until next time . . .
