I had my 36 week appointment yesterday. I was disappointed they didn't check my cervix but the dr. said he didn't want to disturb my cervix after my incident last week. They did the GBS swab and I talked to the dr. about my sleep deprivation. He said that since I am going to sleep fine and waking up in the middle of the night that is a sign of depression. I told him I know I have depression now, but it is manageable and I want to wait until after Emily comes to take medicine for it. He tried to encourage me to get on medication now but I am so close what is another 3.5 weeks?
The dr. gave me a prescription for ambien to take to help with sleeping and I am excited to take it tonight and see how I do. I hope nothing crazy happens. My next appointment is the 12th.
Oh, and the dr. mentioned that they want to do another ultrasound not at my next appointment, but the one after that to check Emily's size. I won't say no to that!
