I have had a favorite pregnancy symptom for the whole pregnancy. It is blood when I blow my nose. Obviously I love feeling the nugget move and everything, but a bloody nose was an early symptom and it has been consistent. So even when I was concerned or doubting, if there was blood in the tissue when I blew my nose, it was calming.
Till yesterday. I have only had a couple of real bloody noses. Mostly it is just a little blood in the tissue, not actual flow. Till yesterday. At work. Mid-conversation with a colleague, I felt my nose was getting runny. When it started to feel a little drippy I grabbed a tissue. By the time I got it to my face, his face had already fallen and he was asking 'are you alright?'. That was when I knew the runny nose, was not really runny, but plain old bloody.
Only a little embarrassing.
We saw the dr on Monday and everything looks good. Nugget is head down (and has been since like June, so that wasn't a surprise), and almost 8lbs already. 7lb13oz was the calculation. He is 91%ile in size now, and all measurements put him at 39+weeks. We are pushing back the Dec 8 schedule to Dec 17 now. If I go into labor naturally, fine, otherwise he will be removed on the 17th or 18th. This is good, he will be a whole week before xmas so we could celebrate his birthday earlier. Also, he will be around 9lbs by then, so if he doesn't come out on his own, would I really want to have to push him out??
He definitely favors the right side and my belly is often completely firm on the right side, and soft/squishy on the left side. That is weird.
Planned/expected end date, 39w1d, wish us luck.
