I had my 36 week doctor appointment yesterday. I'm just going to copy and paste from my BB.
Nothing really to report. Baby is growing well. My weight was down 2 lbs in 1 week. A total gain of 11 lbs to date. Ask me how happy I am about that!! My doctor is pleased :eyeroll: with all the contractions I've been having. Since we made our goal of 36 weeks, the new goal is 37 weeks (Saturday). Although she asked me not to have him on Saturday because she will be out of town.
If I still haven't popped by my appointment on Monday she said, in her words, that she will "shred my membranes to bits." I'm excited and nervous out this. Baby seems to be ready and my body seems to be ready. Baby boy is working on the exit, but can't figure out the lock lol. With DS, she stripped my membranes, and I went into labor that afternoon. Assuming baby is ready to go, I'm guessing based on DS that I may have a baby late Monday, early Tuesday.
This pregnancy has been so rough, I'm ready for babykins. I can barely walk and I can barely take care of DS right now. I feel so bad for letting him watch so much TV, but sometimes, I just can't do anything else because of the pain and lack of energy.
Do they want you to deliver early?

Wait, what? Already February due dates? I can't believe ladies from our BB are starting their lodge This is exciting and means I have less time than I thought I did!
I enjoyed reading your intro and look forward to hearing about more of your appts and BIRTH STORY soon
Welcome to your lodge. I love that your DS was face down pouting during the ceremony, what a hoot!
Yay, you have a lodge! I can't believe its that time already.
So sweet your Dh asked for permission to marry you before proposing! They just don't make them like that anymore.
I'm anxious to see how your labor progresses!
Nothing really to report today. Back when I got pregnant, I told DH, "Watch me go into labor when we get a really big snowfall." We don't get lots of snow where we are. But there was a foot of snow in the forecast last night. When I looked out the window and saw snow last night, I started cramping, which lasted an hour. Made me a little nervous at the time.
I had some energy this morning, so I took DS to the mall for playtime at the indoor playground. And did a lot of walking around. I'm feeling lots of pressure, but I'm sure that will settle down. I'm not too worried about popping early anymore. I think he will hang on until Monday/Tuesday at the earliest. I was 2cm last week, with my cervix being 0.5cm long and baby's head engaged. But with DS, I was 5cm before labor started. So I'm not too worried.
Of course after I type this, I sneezed, startled baby, and had a mild contraction. Haha. Oh well.
Haha - don't you love it when any movement starts a contraction?? So annoying!! Glad you're cooking that baby a little longer - take each day one at a time...
