I went to my 36 week appointment today. Don’t worry I won’t share any details of my lady business. Baby Claire is measuring spot on 36 weeks (hooray!), heart rate was just fine, and everything is proceeding as normal. As usual, we had great conversation with Dr. Gates at our appointment.

Toward the end of the appointment he very frankly asks us about our sex life. He proceeds to tell us how often we should be doing it and why that will bring labor faster. Then he laughs and says “Just kidding, Toby paid me five bucks to say that!” We all had a good laugh.

The moment Dr. Gates leaves the room, Toby grins at me and says “I love that guy!”
