I had an OB appt today and my breastfeeding class.OB was good, she told me basically I need to rest alot more and should take maternity leave earlier (I'm done with work Feb 2 which would put me just over 37 weeks, she said 36 weeks, but I don't see a huge difference in 5 days) and that if I go into labor anytime after 36w she's not going to stop it YIKES!...we'll see how that goes, I may be having to spread out some clients appts so I'm off my feet more since I've been having some pretty good BHs. She didn't seem TOO concerned but she did start to say something and then paused and said, "well you have an ultrasound in 2 weeks right? I'll look over everything then" I'm assuming she was maybe wondering about his size or about my cervix? She said she won't start any of the internal exams till 38 weeks since they aren't alot of fun She said next appt will be pretty much the same as always plus the GBS swab whatever what needs to be done has to be done I guess lol
The BF class was pretty good. Very informative, we practiced all kinds of holds (I think my fave if football), we learned the breast support positions "c hold" "u hold" and "L hold". We learned about baby has to be lined up on his side and how his ear, shoulder and hip must be aligned for proper feeding and how to support his neck and not hold him by the back of the head. We learned how to get him to latch, stay latched and how to get him off (alot trickier than I thought lol) We learned hand expression and feeding times and freezing and yadda yadda yadda lol There was ALOT of info and I am so tired from it all. But all in all good class
And here I am at 35 weeks and I am pretty sure I have dropped a lot! lol
