Had my 36 week appointment today. BP is good, baby is head down and engaged. I'm effaced about 25%, but not dilated. However he is sunnyside up so she wants me on all fours whenever possible and told me of some different sleep positions to help him flip. He's still measuring 2 weeks behind, but she thinks its more his position that might be affecting my measurements. His heartbeat was in the 140's.
Got the gbs swab today, should find out the results on monday. She checked out my hemorroids and cringed and said "yeah that's pretty bad, but I've seen worse." She says she doesn't expect them to get much better before birth, since he is low and putting lots of pressure down there. I'm not constipated at all, so I know thats not contributing to the problem. She said I'm already doing everything I can do, sitz baths, cold compress, tucks, prep H, other witch hazel treatments. She said they couldn't do anything about them until after the baby. She said we would re-evaluate then and prescribe steroids and possibly have them lanced. So yeah these last few weeks will be uncomfy. Sorry if that was TMI.
