My mom arrived last week and will be staying until after baby is due. She offered to get up every morning early and walk the dog. I could not argue with that! It has been a bit tough to walk Lola lately, so she has been neglected. The kids also are enjoying the extra attention.
We made the trip over to Oahu yesterday for my 36 week appointment. I had a non-stress test to moniter the baby's heartbeat/movements and quick u/s to check on the fluid level. Both tests showed baby to be in good health. My OB did a cervix check and found that I am 2 cm dilated. I thought something was happening down there, because a few days ago I could feel a lot of pressure and I was pretty sure baby's head was pushing down. Now that my shirts don't cover my abdomen, it is obvious that baby has dropped a bit. Now don't be concerned that I am dilating early, because my pregnancy history has proven that this only means that I will not deliver until my due date! My body has a terribly poor sense of humor.
We also had a new house guest yesterday. My sister arrived for a week long visit. Lola is loving the new visitors as now she has two friends to walk and feed her cheese. We are so fortunate to have both of them here.
