31 week dr appointment

Today I had my 31 week dr visit. Everything looks good. Sadie's heartbeat was 140 (or so we think). She was moving so much that the dr had to hold on to her bottom and squeeze in order to get a reading at all. I think she moves more that Mili did (if that is possible). I hope the reason for so much movement in the last couple of days is because she is trying to get into birthing position. If so, then I will be making more trips to the restroom due to a head bouncing on the bladder.

My blood pressure was 110/80. The nurse said that is good but I get a little nervous when the bottom number starts to go up (my bp was 107 on the bottom with Mili which require an induction).

I have been having pain in my cervix area (maybe TMI for some of you but it is normal pregnancy talk) and having several rounds of braxstin hicks(sp?) lately. After telling my dr about this she decided to check me for dilation today. She said I am a finger tip dilated and my cervix is soft. It is not uncommon for someone who has already had a vaginal delivery so I have nothing to worry about. I am hoping because I am already soft that things will progress quite quickly after labor starts (of course, not too fast to get Mili dropped off and get to the hospital and not before 37 weeks). I don't want much, huh.

For those of you that could care less about pregnancy talk, I am sorry to bore you. Thanks for hanging in there until the end of this post.

Hugs and Kisses

Great to hear that things are going as planned with Sadie. Continuous prayers coming your way for your list of "wishes".
