39 weeks

I feel as though pregnancy has become my ground state. I always have been, and always will be. There is no beginning or end, there's just this big round belly in front of me no matter which way I turn! Labor has become an abstract concept; having an actual baby even more so.

I saw my GP this morning, she said that the baby has dropped a little, she's lower than she was a week ago, but is still not actually engaged. Apparently, however, it's pretty normal for first babies not to engage until labor starts, so it could still be any time now. Everything's fine, her heartrate is still good, as is my blood pressure, she's measuring perfectly normal, and I haven't had either a dizzy spell or a faint spell for at least a few weeks now.

The stuff I used to clean the bathroom mirror the other day says "no streak" on the bottle. It lied.

Gorgeous! All of you! I am so pleased you have not had the dizzy spells Stace..and it allows you to try and rest and get all the energy you can stored for that important delivery :)
True, the baby's head will engage when she is will know it and feel it as a "fullness".
I cannot wait to read your story or how Elspeth came into the World... huggs and excitement plus from Freezing cold and windy Victoria!
