I had my 34 week ck up today! Everything looks great Blood pressure 110/68 gained 2 lbs since my last appt. 2 weeks ago. Ava Kennedy's heartrate is 143 BPM--I did get checked again today & am only 1/2 cm dilated!!! Talked to doctor about my options about pain meds--he said we would go on with the epidural & if it didn't work he would make sure I would have good pain meds. He also said that if I was to have to have a c-section for any reason he would put me to sleep since there would be a chance an epidural wouldn't work properly. I talked to him about an induction but he won't do one before 39 weeks but he will strip my membranes at 38 weeks. I'm trying to schedule something so I can plan to have my parents down so they can watch my boys when I go into labor. With us being military we have no family here & very few friends. Sawyer is soo attached to me that I'd be worry to leave him with any of our friends b/c he'll freak out. Okay enough rabbling---all in all it was great appt.
