I had a regular appointment at the birth center today. I told the midwife I have been having the strangest sensation.. that it sometimes feels like there is a rock stuck "up there". I asked if perhaps the baby was checking to see if it was warm enough to come out.
She did an exam and determined that the baby is at "negative one station". She summed this up as meaning that the baby is really far down. Zero station would mean that the baby's head is aligned with my pelvic bones and at my cervix.. so right now she is a smidge above that and in labor ready position. Sometimes women in labor are already at -1 station, so maybe I am ahead of the game and baby will have a shorter distance to travel come birth time!
9 days until my official due date. 16 days until the sonogram due date. How about leaving some predictions? One meeeeelion dollars to the winner!
