36 week check up

Well I've got some good news & some news that could be perceived as "not so good" news... but I know everything will be OK! The good news is that she is in position... head down! I had an internal exam & I'm an inch dilated (barely!) but her head has dropped pretty low. When my midwife measured my belly she was concerned b/c the measurement was kind of low, so she sent me for an ultrasound. During the ultrasound the tech said she has A LOT of hair. We (my mom went with me) could see her little hair floating around. :) She weighs 6 pounds 4 ounces... which is average for how far along I am BUT her amniotic fluid was low, which explained why I was measuring low. The fluid is supposed to be between 10-20 & I'm @ 7.5... SO my midwife put me on bed rest until Monday. She wants me to stay off of my feet (I can  still do my work on the computer, which is good), but no walking or standing around. DARN... no dishes or dinner prep OR PAINTING (ARGH). The hubby  is so wonderful, when I told him he said "no worries I'll take care of everything". Aww, what a guy. It's so great to be married to someone like him. Anyway, I go back Monday & if my fluid is still low they will induce labor. BUT I know everything will be fine. I just think I have been overdoing it. So I'm going to relax, prop my feet up & take it easy 'til Monday.
