I had my 36 week appointment this morning...
I had the GBS swab done and it wasn't as bad as I was expecting it to be - with swabbing both ends and all! haha I'm assuming I'll get the results next week. Even though it's looking like a c-section, the doctor wanted to do the swab, anyway; but, didn't do an internal.
The baby's heart beat, my blood pressure, weight gain, etc. is all still really good; so, no concerns there! The baby is still so high up that it is hard to breathe at times, though. The only thing that's worrying me now is this pending c-section... I guess the doctor will consult an OB who will do the surgery and I have to have an appointment with them to discuss, etc. and then I'll get the c-section date. The doctor keeps saying that it will likely be booked for a week before my due date. If this is the case, they're cutting it quite close in terms of booking the consultation, etc. Does anyone have any experience with an elective c-section and how all this works? I definitely want to have the c-section booked in case this baby decides not to flip; however, I'm still keeping my fingers crossed that I'll be able to delivery vaginally! It makes me feel a little better that they'll do an ultrasound before the c-section just to ensure that the baby hasn't flipped before they do an unnecessary surgery!
I can't believe my appointments are now down to once every week and that I could be holding my baby in three weeks! Yikes!
