Due Date Milk

I went to the grocery store yesterday, grabbed a gallon of milk, and check out the sell by date:

What are the odds (Dec 5th is my due date!)? It's also a bit of a realization that my due date is getting REALLY close!

Went to the OB today - I'm Group B strep negative - which is good news. No IV needed for me. My weight took a bit of a jump... 7 pounds in 2.5 weeks.... but I'm really starting to swell - so I'm trying to take that bit of information in stride. My BP was good, the baby's heartbeat was great. All good news.

We talked a bit about the delivery. He mentioned that he hasn't done an episiotomy since he joined this practice - they prefer you to tear (which for me is good news). They also let you go 42 weeks before they get pushy about induction (unless of course, you start to show signs that the baby needs to come out). All in all, he just made me even more comfortable with my choice of that OB practice for my natural childbirth.

I had the same milk thought last week! Now the milk is coming with dates that I will absolutely have a baby by.

Your getting SO close! I'm glad you're happy with your OB choice. That's always a nice feeling to be comfortable with a choice.
Enjoy your day!

Wow! It's so close now! That milk bottle is just so visual. You sound relaxed and calm. Keep it up!

Wow you really are counting down the days now! I'm glad that you picked the right OB, but just reading that statement about "they prefer you tear" gave me chills.
One part of childbirth I'm definitely not looking forward to (well, when my time comes that is!)
