34 week appointment (XP)

Alrighty.

So.

I had my 34 week check up. We did the GBS swab and an internal check. I should get the results of the GBS early next week sometime. My weight was good, I've only gained 2 lbs in the last 3 weeks Still no UTI!!! I'm SHOCKED at that! This is AWESOME news for me. I have the worst UTI's since I was 16 and frequent. I'm usually on preventative antibiotics from very early in my pregnancies and I still have yet to need them at all! Now on to the big news.

The cervical check. So, cervix is anterior and high. Baby is resting nicely below my cervix but in front of it. The external os is open wide and VERY soft. She said I'm about 75% long and the internal os is about a fingertip dilated. She described the cervix as a favorable one and said that when it's time, it's gonna go FAST! At this point she doubts baby will wait until due date. I could go a week from now or longer, it's hard to say.. but most signs and symptoms are pointing to sooner rather than later.

I have my next 5 appointments scheduled (brings me to a little over 40 weeks). But my doc is not here the whole time and I feel like I'm at a big OB place where you have no say or clue on who will deliver you. Of my next 5 appointments, I see my doc 3 times, so it's not too bad.. but she's simply "not available" the week just before my due date!

I just pray that when I go in that she's available. I'd hate for someone else to deliver me, but I know women do it all the time and it's not a big deal, I'm just spoiled and have never had to do it that way before.

2.5 weeks to term!!!

I'm totally resisting the urge to go for a really long walk just to see what will happen. Lol
