Well, I finally saw my friend and midwife's assistant, Christy, today. My blood pressure is normal. The baby is somewhat posterior. She had to pause a few times in checking his position because I kept having contractions. He is off to my left side so I get to go on www.spinningbabies.com to find some exercises to help him turn around. She also quickly found the heart beat (thank God!) and let me listen. I think she said it was 140 something. I also got a list of a few others things to have handy for the birth, like trash bags, shower curtains and old towels.
Here's hoping we'll all see the new baby soon!
