    Coughing while very pregnant is no fun. Ick.

    I have my 38w appointment tomorrow. From 36-37 weeks I didn't gain any weight and my fundal height didn't change. So, my MW wants to see some progress or they might do an u/s to check fluid levels and such. Based on my home estimates I've managed 1-2lbs this week (thank you, chocolate cake and Ben&Jerry's), but when I try to measure my fundal height I get 35cm... sometimes 36cm. So, hopefully I'm off and it's at least 36cm tomorrow. Or maybe he's really low. That would be okay, too.
    I also have my first cervix check tomorrow.

    ETA: This evening my BH are 7-8 min apart and 1:30 each. If I were a FTM I'd be so excited. As it is, I'm going to shower, sleep, and hope that my cervix isn't completely closed at my appointment tomorrow.

    38w appointment:
    I was still measuring 35cm (now 3 weeks behind) so I had an u/s (BPP, I guess). Baby scored and 8 of 8. He was super active and the tech said she had never felt a baby move so clearly. He's 32nd percentile, but his head is measuring a week ahead (well, 39+2 since they had a different EDD from a previous u/s).
    My BP was awesome at 108/62 and I did manage to gain weight this week, but I guess it didn't go to the baby. I decided to decline a cervical check because given my cold and cough I didn't want to risk triggering labor right now.

    I guess the BP is another reason to stick with not having a epi. The last thing I need is anything making my BP drop!

    yay for a good appt and u/s. Hopefully you'll feel better soon, at least before baby arrives.

    I always measure behind with my kids to. I do understand the worry but at the same time not everyone always measures perfect. Glad it was a good appointment though and at least you got to see the baby again. Drink some honey, lemon, (fresh)ginger tea, it will do wonders for your cough and help your body naturally detox the cold.

    Sounds like a great appt. Yeah the epi/spinal always makes my bp drop really really low. Yours is already low. I am glad baby is doing well. Dang do we all have colds.

    The coughing kept me up last night. ick. Fortunately, the ILs are going to take the boys for a bit this afternoon so I can nap. Hopefully I'll be able to sleep.
