BABY GIRL IS HEAD DOWN!!!

What else do I need to say about the appointment this morning? Everything pales in comparison with that news. 🙂

Here’s the other, way less exciting stuff:

I can now check my blood sugar just twice a day. This is great news for my fingers, which are slightly bruised and forming callouses at the poke sites. (It’s my own fault. I choose to use only two fingers so I don’t interfere with knitting. I’m so hard core.) And my blood pressure is fine. 132/76 or something like that.

Baby is currently 8 pounds, 8 ounces. She’s big like her brother was. I will have another ultrasound at week 39 to check her weight. If she’s between 9.5 and 10 pounds, then I will have to have a C-section. This is a bummer, because I would like to avoid having a C-section at all costs. There’s really nothing I can do about this, though. Baby will grow as she wants. I have no control over this. I can just hope that she’ll be small enough to deliver safely.

With the exception of this little diabetes thing, I’m having quite the normal pregnancy. For me, anyway. 🙂 All is well. I feel very lucky.

    Thanks, Rose. I can hardly wait! 🙂

    Becky — you’re a cheater! Just kidding. 🙂 My actual due date is 2/22, so she could really come any time. I think next week sounds great. 🙂
