Today was my 34 week, 3 day doctor visit, and everything went well. I am up a total of 25 pounds. I gained four pounds in the past four weeks and Dr. Chwe was pleased. Baby's heartbeat was 160, which is normal. My blood pressure is still good and I don't have excessive swelling, so that is all good. I start my weekly appointments next week. He'll start checking for dilation then, although he said that he doesn't expect much as this is my first baby.
I asked if he could tell if Baby's head is down and in the correct position. He said that she does have her head down. I asked how he knew, and he said there isn't much room for her to hide in there and he can tell just by looking when I lay back. Cool! One of my worries allayed! I thought it is her bottom I feel up near my ribs, but I wasn't sure.
And a photo of me and the dogs...just to have a photo to add to the post:
