36 weeks

We're getting closer...but just not close enough. I'm definitely getting to the point of hoping he comes a little early, and PRAYING that he doesn't go past his due date, even though I know it's very typical for first time mothers to go a week or so past their due date.

Earlier today, I had a doc's appointment where they check to see if the baby's dropped and if I'm dilated..... So, Grayson is definitely dropping....BUT, the doc couldn't tell if I was dilated because he is "Posterior".

Actually, the doc said he "could" check to see if I was dilated, but it wasn't worth the pain he'd have to put me through.

Many babies turn last minute, so we are hoping this happens, because having a posterior baby and delivering that way = Difficult Delivery and BACK LABOR
This is especially not helpful considering I plan to go Med-Free for the Birth.

Here's the Weekly Quiz
