Doctor Visit

Had a doctor appointment today. My doctor had told me the last time I saw her that she had no intention of checking me today and it would just be a routine check-up. She said that she would either check me next week or maybe wait to see me in two weeks and check me then. She held to that while she measured my uterus and listened to the angel's heart beat. It wasn't until we were talking after and I was explaining to her how I was feeling and how I have all the kids' bags packed, mine and Sierra's bags packed. It was then that she gave me a worried look and said that I needed to get undressed. That I was worrying her and she wanted to know for herself. I started to feel bad and told her that I trusted her and we could wait til next week, but she was set that we should check. So we did.

Turns out, I was right - that there are changes happening and I am not losing my mind! I am dilated 1cm and doctor's exact words were, "She is extremely low!" Alright then. So now, we go back next Monday. The only other thing that she said other than she would see me next week was that she sure that Sierra won't be making it to 40 weeks. This is something I have been feeling for quite some time. Nice to know I have her in my corner now too!!

I could totally walk around 1cm for quite some time, but I think Sierra will be making her appearance by the end of November. It is just a feeling I am having. We shall see. 35 weeks tomorrow! So excited to know I will be holding my precious in the near future!

You're in the hands of a great doctor! Hopefully little miss will stay put a few weeks longer but your mama instinct will never steer you wrong! You look fabulous. So great seeing you today! xoox

Good luck! I am surprised it's so early. When did your others come?

William was 2cm for 6 weeks before I had him... sigh.
