I had my most recent appointment Thursday but forgot to post. Blood pressure is still low which I was happy about. Really hoping it will cooperate this time and I won't end up developing Pre-e in labor again. I had lost 1 1/2 lbs. from last week, probably because I was sick over the weekend and couldn't eat for a couple days. I think my overall weight gain has been between 10-15lbs. which I am happy about since I was overweight when I got pregnant. Had my GBS swab which hopefully will come back negative. I declined a cervical check and swabs for STDs.
I asked the midwife if the hospital still has a policy against drinking/eating in labor which if I am with the midwives they don't enforce it, but if I have to transfer to an OB for some reason, they do not allow. I don't care about eating but I will be drinking whether they like it or not-I remember I got so thirsty last time and ice chips didn't cut it, fortunately my DH snuck me juice to drink. This time I will just take a water bottle and refuse to let go of it, not likely they will pry it from me by force, haha!
