Had my "last" prenatal doctor appointment today. Unless he doesn't come by the 27th, in which case I have another one on the 28th and we'll take it from there.

This was about 5 minutes in and out, the appointment was that quick. I had no questions, except, of course, "How big does he feel to you?". Good news? He still only feels about 7 - 7.5 lbs. Phew. That's still big, to me, but at least she hasn't said the "8" word....

I've lost 2 lbs, but that's apparently ok and actually quite normal. Who would have thought?

Baby is very far down in my pelvis now. His heartbeat is around 130. My blood pressure is all good. He's not posterior - and let's hope he stays that way!

All is well. It's just a waiting game.

I had a nice chat with him tonight talking about his birth and what his mom and dad's preferences are, and that if he can't feel me physically due to the possibility of an epidural, to know that I'm still there and we're still connected, and Dad is still there on the outside too, waiting to welcome him. I talked with him about his conception and how we had been trying to conceive and were waiting for him and he came at the exact time he was supposed to. When mom was healthy (from a disastrous 1.5 years) and Dad was happy that mom was healthy again! I told him that we're excited to meet him and welcome him and that he can come whenever he's ready.

Come on little guy, we're so excited to meet you!

I can't believe how quickly time has gone by. It's been months that I started reading your blog, and I'm so happy for you that you've had a great pregnancy. You must be incredibly excited! Will you still be blogging after your son is born?

So your due date has been adjusted to Feb 4? True? That will give a lot more breathing room before anyone starts worrying about him being "late". So great that you are communicating to him about the birth.
What an amazing pregnancy you've had - what a blessing. Make sure you let us know if you can so that everyone can be sending their prayers and Light and angels to help you!xxoo

Your little boy is very very very lucky that he has such conscious and loving parents. Into the light he will come... It was LOVELY to see you today, even with a wild monkey running around. xo NIcola

@anonymous: yes, still going to blog after he's born! I can only imagine what sort of stuff will come up then. :)

@alix: this pregnancy HAS been a blessing, in so many ways. It's just been glorious. In SO many ways! I've loved every minute of it. I'm going to tweet it, as much as possible, before leaving for the hospital, so it will show up on Twitter, on my Facebook status, and on the sidebar of this blog. Might try to tweet from hospital at points along the way too.

@Nicola: Thank you for the kind words! We're trying to be as conscious as parents as we can be. It was a delightful visit! Especially with a little monkey running around!
