After having my 36 week blood tests on Thursday it was time to see our obstetrician today for the results and this weeks check up. We will be seeing him every week now up until our little boy is born. Not long to go now!

Good news, the blood test results were perfect and the doctor was very happy with my progress. Addison was still head down and moving into my pelvis, Charles even got to feel our boy’s head!! So far so good, our pregnancy is progressing right on track.

Dr Bopp discussed with us about the timing of birth and explained that they won’t let us go too long past our due date (28/10/10 – the date my Ob goes by) if Addi still hasn’t made an appearance. As long as it is after the 22nd October I don’t mind when he comes! I’m ready to go any time Addi is and can’t wait to meet him!

My blood pressure was right on track with 110/65 which is consistent with what it has been for the entire pregnancy.

Our next appointment is in one weeks time when we will be just over 37 weeks pregnant and considered full term!! What a wonderful milestone to reach :).
