Prenatal Check-Up #10

Today was the 10th prenatal check-up. Have to come to the doctor on a weekly basis toward the last few weeks of my pregnancy. There was a nurse trainee who did my weight measurement, urine test, and blood pressure today. Baby's heartbeat was faster today. He was probably very excited, heartbeat was about 150 per minute. Of course, just like last time, the doctor needed to examine my cervix. I was extremely nervous but well prepared, no matter how painful or uncomfortable, I would be brave and let the doctor complete the examination... Doctor said the cervix was open about 1 cm and still toward the back. Even though the baby's head is down but I need to walk and let the gravity to help the baby come down more so the bones and muscles will be ready for labor later on. The doctor said it was normal for me to feel pain on my pelvic area when I walk. Although it's painful, I still need to walk, in a slow pace.
