A Long Hallway with a Closed Door

in Does this baby make me look fat?

Nothing new here, nothing to report. My cervix is still long and closed, the baby is still head down (vertex LOA, that is), the baby’s heartrate is still around 138, and I’ve gained 1.5 pounds since last week (total gain, 27.5 pounds).

I feel so very different from how I felt at this point in Monkey’s pregnancy, that I am optimistic… confident, even, that I’ll go to term.* (Let’s not dwell on how big this baby will be at term and how I am praying I don’t go late by one second. Suffice it to say that at nearly six weeks pre-term, the Monkeyboy was not even considered low birth weight for a full term baby. And second babies are usually larger.)

I go back next week. At this point, I’ve had more action at my doctor’s office in the last week that I’ve had at home in the last month. Unfortunately, it doesn’t look like that’s going to change.

*And this is where I should make a comment about hoping I’m not jinxing myself, but I don’t feel it. Nope, just don’t feel jinxy at all.
