29 Week Appointment

I have today off and had scheduled a morning appointment with Dr. M. I was surprised to see how late they were running, but I was somehow able to keep my calm as I waited 40 minutes for the Dr.

The tech looked at baby girl before Dr. M arrived and all looked well. She is head down and face down and her head is right up against my cervix. I couldn't tell from her pictures whether my cervix looked ok, so I just focused on our precious daughter who looked so comfy and peaceful. She is getting SO big. I can't believe it. 

My fluids looked ok, still on the higher end but not in any danger category. Two weeks ago she said 24, last week she said 20 and this week it's 22. I think they start worrying when it hits 25. There's nothing I can do to control it, so I'm just trying not to worry. 

Dr. came in and took my cervical measurements. My eyes about popped out of my head when I saw 2.65, 2.8 and 2.5cm come up after she traced it a few times. Then they got a measurement of 4 and I said, "whoa-are you sure that's my cervix?" I could tell there was no funneling and things looked really good. They've been telling me all along that I have a "dynamic" cervix, meaning it changes with the wind- so they weren't too surprised at today's measurements--but they were still really happy about them. I couldn't believe it. Hearing good news at this point is really amazing. 

She said my restrictions were the same, but that this will hopefully calm my nerves and allow me to relax a little bit. My shower is Saturday-so I'm really excited!

Now the only stress I have is finding a dress to wear. Not being able to shop is a real challenge and my mail-order dresses have been total fails so far!


  1. So so happy to hear you had a good appointment! I've been sending good thoughts your way this whole time and I hope Saturday is the most wonderful day for you and your family.

  2. So glad to hear the good news!! Congrats to 29 weeks!
