I went to the doctor today and everything looks great! My weight gain is still normal, blood pressure is good, the baby's heartbeat is perfect, and he has moved down considerably! The doctor was really surprised at how far along things have come. She could feel his head and said that I am dialated at 1 "and a finger tip," so somewhere between 1 and 2 centimeters. He is REALLY low. She said that I MIGHT make it to my due date (two weeks from Friday) but she said I really could go at anytime (which I take with a grain of salt since I know a couple of girls who were "about to go" and still had a few weeks before their babies came, but I would like to think so anyway). I'm wildly uncomfortable, can't sleep, spend most of my nights in the bathroom, and have killer heartburn and back pain, but other than that things are going really well (in other words, I feel lousy but it could be a lot worse and I'm grateful that it's not). We're ready for him and we can't wait!
