weekly update

My OB appointment went well. Baby is head down and "very low," according to the doctor.

Stats are as follows:
  • BP: 112/76
  • baby's HR: 161
  • ye olde cervix: 2 cm dilated, 75% effaced
I'm measuring on target, and doc is estimating that she'll be average to a little over average weight at birth -- between 7-8 pounds. She claims, and oh how I'd like to hold her to this prediction, that once things start rolling, it should be a "piece of cake." Mmm-hmm. I've never heard anyone describe labor and delivery that way, except maybe my mother -- and we all know that moms are just angling for grandchildren. ;)
