35 Weeks - Hallelujah!

I am officially a full 35 weeks now, so I ran a couple errands on my own. Nothing too extensive but I made a quick return at the mall and a got a couple baby things at Walmart. I'm feeling so relieved at reaching this milestone of time and am excited about the fact that we are really coming down the homestretch and not too prematurely.

34 Week Side by Sides

I was due with Ava 12/21/08 and am due with this baby 12/24/16. Facebook shows me these time hop pictures that take me back 8 YEARS but to almost the exact same stage of pregnancy from then to now. Crazy to see these side by sides!
34 weeks - 11/12/16

34 weeks with Ava and 34 weeks with Baby #4

Another Kind of Appointment Scheduled

I have been going to a chiropractor weekly for the last year or so. Regular adjustments have been awesome both before and during pregnancy. Now with labor and child birth just around the corner AND the possibility that Baby is currently breech, I sought out a chiropractor in the area who specializes in pregnancy care and is well experienced in the Webster technique. The Webster technique is a specific sacral adjustment that helps facilitate the mother's pelvic alignment and nerve system function. This in turn balances pelvic muscles and ligaments and reduces torsion to the uterus which offers a greater potential for optimal fetal positioning. Plus, regardless of Baby's position, proper alignment for my body will hopefully equate to a short, smooth labor and delivery.

So I have my first appointment with this doctor on Friday morning. I'm looking forward to it! She would like to see me a couple times before my next OB appointment so we can see how/if Baby is positioned after a couple adjustments.
