First of all, I promise pictures of my baby shower, which was Saturday, soon. It was super fun, and I felt very spoiled--as was my baby. One of my friends took all the pictures, though, and I haven't gotten them from her yet. So they are on their way. And with them hopefully a good glimpse of my 36-week belly, since the last shot I have is from 35 weeks, and I think it's grown a ton since then.
I had my 36-week appointment today, which means I finally get to move into the bi-weekly appointment range. My OB practice doesn't let you get there until this point in the pregnancy! Anyway, the report is that I am 1cm dilated and about 25% effaced. The baby is head-down, and has started to drop a little, but not all the way. Fundal height is 34cm--4cm growth since 32 weeks! My OB's guess is that I'll go into labor a few days early, but we all know how valid these guesses are.
And now I'm writing this while standing at my desk because sitting hurts too much! I had been warned by a friend that the cervical check can be painful, but I thought I'd be fine because the check itself didn't hurt too badly. But now I'm definitely feeling some cramping down there. My poor pelvic floor! So I need to go lay down for a few minutes and see if I can get things to move around.
