I have given birth!
Age: 38 years old
Location: Lititz, United States

My Milestones & Events

Baby Dropped
Was still measuring 36 weeks at the 37 week appt. Dr said its because baby's head is engaged and uterus is starting at a lower point so there is a less measurable distance from the top of the uterus to the pubic bone.
