Doctor's Visit

I had my regular doctor's visit today. The doctor was concerned about how often I am having the Braxton Hix contractions but I am not dilated and the cervix is nice and thick. So no concern right now about early deliver.

The little one is already upside down. Yes the doctor had fun pushing on her head - not fun for me! I was glad to hear that the little one has flipped because now there is no concern about a breeched baby. I was not worried about this because Mikayla flipped about this stage a well - but you never know.

Now I just have to be patient and wait 9 more weeks until my due date of February 8th - this is hard because I want to see this little one so bad. I know that if I was working on her room I would be happier but that can't happen until Mikayla is settled in her new room.

Mikyala is saying that her current room is baby sister's room and the other room is her room - so that is a good sign.

Just a thought...don't know if you would consider doing something like this or not, but I thought I'd throw it out there.

My friend who is due with her 2nd on the 9th of Feb has a son who is 2 1/2 and in order for her to get him to sleep in his new room in his new bed, she made a a Big Brother Chart or something she called it. It looked like a calendar that they colored together and then every morning he wakes up after sleeping in his new Big Boy room, they get to put a stamp on the calendar and if he fills up all of the boxes I think there are like 10-15 boxes, he will get some sort of treat, like a trip to the aquarium or park or something that he'd like to do. She said it has worked like a charm and he now is excited to go into his room into his bed and sleep.

Don't know what if any kind of trouble you are having settling Mikayla in her new room...but it might be worth a shot!

I'm glad that those contractions aren't making any changes. Rest up and take care of yourself!

You are due on my B-day! I am due Feb. 29th and it is a boy. Do you have a name picked out?

Those damn braxton hicks and the pee trips are the worse right now for me too. I have been getting up around 3:30 during the night and not falling back asleep til about 5:30, just in time for everyone else in the house to be getting up. Good luck! We are on our count down together.
