35 week appointment

Short appointment today. Bp was awesome, 110/68, heart beat had to be taken from the cord bc she was hiding it apparently and was in the 130s. GBS next week now and an internal exam. I am measuring 39 weeks and am up 4 lbs in a week. She said it is all water weight because my feet an legs are extremely swollen! She said that an early sign of pre e, but my bp and everything else were great. She was very happy with my report from yesterday and said she won't induce till 39 weeks if it looks adorable and I want her to. Yay! She also said in 4 days we switch to wanting her to start on her way out lol. I think she meant that its better to not have to be induced, also in my mind I know I can birth a baby her size successfully and don't know about any bigger.

I am supposed to call if the swelling gets worse or if I have headaches that won't go away. O and i am completely free to do as I wish now! I also get to have her at my hospital Friday. Happy day.
