Here we are at 31 weeks - as usual I'm a little late posting! Everybody is still happy and healthy, although I have to admit that sleeping is getting more difficult. Also tying my shoes, and anything else involving bending over! But, I guess that's to be expected. Definitely feeling a little more cumbersome.
We had another appointment in Anchorage today, and met the third and final midwife at the center. She was very nice! I feel quite comfortable with all of them, although if I get to choose I'm hoping for the second one we met. She was the most personable, at least as far as you can tell in a 20 minute appointment.
It is a little tiresome driving two hours for such a short appointment, and then deciding if we want to kill some time in Anchorage, or turn around and drive straight home! Oh well, I think our choice to go with the birth center will be worth it.
So, everything still looks really good, blood pressure is good, weight is good, no proteins or anything else to worry about. Jonas seems to be firmly lodged head down, and she thinks he will probably stay that way. Good boy Jonas! He's also measuring a few weeks ahead still (about 34 weeks right now), so I'm not giving up hope that he'll be right on time. Or possibly a little early . . . ??? Don't want to get my hopes up too far. :-)
Pretty hard to believe that our next appointment is in three weeks, and after that we're going to start going weekly! Just zooming right along . . . can't wait to meet him!
