And she was very nice and helpful - a young (aprx 40) high energy woman.  BP, weight gain, urine were all normal. She said baby is in a good position (I told her he likes to spin but at least he is slowing down on turning transverse). She reassured me on all my worries - that I wouldn't be able to labour the way I want (upright as much a possible) or that they would make me stay in the hospital longer than I want even if I am healthy and OK. Back in 2 weeks and they will do the strep b test and then I start going in weekly.

Proud Mom to Annika (4), Jamie (3), and 4 angels. Anxiously awaiting Baby #3!

Glad to hear it went well. I know you were apprehensive about the new OB. Sounds like things will work out the way you'd like.

Yay for a good appointment and liking your new OB! I'm glad she was able to reassure you on some of the things you were worried about as well!
