37 week appointment

So my 37 week appointment went well, my bp was good, but my swelling is getting worse and im waking up most mornings with a headache, i told my dr that and she said there wasn't any protein in my urine, but a little preeclamsia would be good cause then the surgion would have to take her...She knows how uncomfortable i am, and then she had to check where babys head is and that was realllllllly painful her pushing on my tummy by my pelvis.. im like i could have told you where she is i feel her hickups in my vajayjay .. Overall good appointment tho her heartbeats nice and strong i see her in a week for my last appointment and on the 17th is my scheduled c-section if i make it there.. They are taking her @39 weeks , my other scheduled c-sections were for 38..Makes me a little nervous but thats the hospitals policy now.

Glad your bp is good. Don't wish for pre eclampsia girl...I know your uncomfy but that stuff is serious.

Sorry about the swelling and headaches though. I have been swelling a lot too. I have serious cankles..yuck.

I know those cervical checks hurt right? I had no idea it would hurt. I guess things are just more senstive down there. You can decline them though. Well hopefully time flies by for you soon and you are holding little Sadie in your arms.

I can't believe you made it to 37 weeks! That's great. I can't imagine you'll make it to 39, but who knows, right??

Yay, congrats on making it full term. I know that must be a weight off of your mind. I hope that you are as comfortable as possible for the next couple of weeks until Baby Girl gets here. Smile

Yay for having an end date and a pretty good appt today. I agree...those cervical checks really do hurt and are not fun.
Almost done mama!

Another term mama! :woohoo: I know we all are either ridiculiously uncomfortable or SERIOUSLY getting close to being.. but baby cakes needs the time. Our little ones know when they're ready.. I've always said if my baby comes to my arms instead of the NICU, it will be worth whatever extra week or whatever is needed.. Wink

Hang in there.. you're doin awesome!! Biggrin

Yay for full term! How has your bp been? I hope you can keep the pre-e at bay and baby stays baking until your c/s date!
