Pregnancy update!

I lost 3 fundal height centimeters at my last visit. Why you ask? Because this sweet bundle of joy keeps pushing its way downward and as she says giving it more room to grow. The midwife said she wouldn't say its head is engaged but it is very very low. I have never had this with any of my kids, well not this early anyway. I had it with Biggie but I was walking around at 4 plus centimeters dilated 15 days late. She also wants me to up my water intake to a gallon a day. The bladder is already working at about half size were is a gallon of water going to fit. I have to remind myself that I don't have to pee yet again and do a few kegels and wait a while. And lastly she said she'd see me in two weeks, not one but two! Not that I want to go every week but I want to know the end is near, and weekly visits are at the end. Well I suppose I should already know they come when there ready, not when I'm ready. I don't much care for being taught patience;)

I don't think that I could drink a gallon of water, let alone be pregnant and drink that much! Maybe you will go early? How much of a surprise would that be?!?

Me thinks that baby is coming soon...once they drop they usually come fairly soon. I always try and drink a gallon of water a day most days I do. However, I pee ALL the time I can't imagine doing it when I'm preggo..good luck to you:)
