My appointment went well today. I am 34 weeks tomorrow, but my belly is measuring 32, but the midwife did not seem concerned. Can't believe after the next one I am on to weekly appts!

Reviving this thread since the November Mamas thread is getting out of control! I had my 34 week appointment today and my first NST. I actually really enjoyed the NST, lol. I sat there in a recliner with the wireless monitors and for about half an hour listened to the heartbeat and watched it on the monitor. Baby did great, so that was good to hear. My OB appointment was pretty boring and everything's looking good. I can't believe my next appointment kicks off internal checks and weekly appointments after that!

@ShootingStar: Glad to hear that your appointment went well! So close to the weekly appointments! I remember back to those first weeks with you talking about betas and whatnot. So excited that we're approaching the end of our pregnancies!
@sweetooth: I know, it almost seems like it was just a few days ago! My midwife commented today that she couldn't believe I was already 34 weeks, and I was thinking yeah it seemed like my first appointment at 8 weeks couldn't have really been that long ago. I hope the other members of our IF board that are still struggling have the same luck that we did soon.
@ShootingStar: I hope so too...
So, I had my weekly appt yesterday (I am 38 weeks today!). My appt was 3:20...I didn't walk out of the office until 5:45. I was SO mad that I had to wait so long.
It went well, though. They did a cervical check since we last did one 2 weeks ago, and I'm still only 1cm dialated. Baby is head down, which is good. She didn't seem concerned by the pains I was having on Saturday, and she reviewed my birth plan, and said it looked great.
Unfortunately, my hospital doesn't have a birthing stool--apparently someone keeps stealing them? Weird!

even though my due date has mostly been the 7th of November- and CJ has been measuring either slightly ahead or right on for that due date the entire time.... my due date got bumped to the 12th! So instead of being 38 weeks today, I'm 37+2
I had an ultrasound today to check her positioning and she's looking good-- head down and all that-- she's still pretty active so she's not settled yet-- and I'm not even a teensy bit dilated yet-- so I'm guessing that means she's going to stay tucked in for another few weeks!
My NST (first one) went well-- it was kind of fun to watch the numbers spike up every now and then and just listen to her heartbeat for 20-30 minutes
