We'll call it progress!

Meg and I went to our 39 week OB appointment this afternoon. Meg gained another 2 lbs (I think she's starting to freak out!) The technician couldn't get a clear reading of Avery's heartbeat, so she made a note in Meg's chart.

The doctor checked Avery's heartbeat with the doppler and concluded that she was in the 120 range (she's usually between 140-160). She told us that it is normal for their rate to slow down as they grow and that it was nothing to worry about. I asked her if it was an indication of labor, but she said Avery could just be sleeping.

The doctor then performed an internal exam. Meg was a "fingertip" dilated (half a cm). We'll call it progress!

Our next appointment is Monday!
