36 Week "Biscuit" Appointment

I've probably been saying this all along, but I can't believe I'm 36 weeks!! I had an appointment with the Nurse Practitioner today. Everthing is looking good. I was surprised when she told me that when I was 36 weeks pregnant with Morgan I was 13 pounds heavier that I was today. Wow!! I think many things attributed to this, one being regular exercise and another big one is that I still have not shown signs of all the swelling I had last time. I hope it stays that way. It's been really hot here and she said that most of their patients have been pretty swollen up at this point.

I had my first "check" of this pregnancy (they do an exam to check your cervix for dilation and effacement). She said the baby's head is still high and everything's pretty closed up, but that's fine for this point. If I'm that way at 39 or 40 weeks that will be an issue, but I expect there will be some changes soon.

Only a month to go! We can't wait to meet our little one. We have some family in town this weekend so I won't be posting much, but I'll do my best to get some pictures for some posts for next week.
