My midwife appointment was moved to today since the weather is supposed to get bad....here's the low down.
Last Thursday the rib pain that I had been experiencing subsided considerably. I didn't think too much of it. On Friday and Saturday I started noticing my stomach felt smaller and I had so much more room between my breast and stomach. Last night I told DH I thought I'd dropped and he said it looked like I had. My mom was here today and she to was amazed at how it had dropped.My midwife confimed today that the baby has indeed dropped and now I'm only measuring 3 weeks ahead instead of 6. There were some traces of ketones and leukocytes in my urine. She said I need to eat more protein to reduce the ketones. The leukocytes could be a number of things and is not a worry at this point since I always seem to have a lurking vaginal infection.
She didn't check me because she didn't want to irritate my uterus. If I have any changes of course I'll call her. I have been contracting (more than BH) for awhile now but they are getting more frequent. So, I'm going to take it easy as much as I can. I'm almost 29 weeks so this little guy still needs to bake for a few weeks.
I've never experienced this type of pregnancy before. It feels like a roller coaster ride. All my other pregnancies were "by the book." This pregnancy has been quite a trip!
