was just as cruddy as Mondays! Saw the dr I don't like. bc the one that I wanted to see was out. So blood pressure was still up assuming Im measuring small still bc she didnt say what it was but told me she's scheduling me for an ultrasound on Monday to check growth and fluid. (and i was measuring smaller this past Monday) so despite saying that they are going to talk at 39 weeks bc they didnt want me to go much past that and saying my blood pressure is borderline they certainly aren't doing anythign about it. They also aren't concerned about the fact that I can hardly walk and at times almost fall bc the nerve gets pinched afer I have started walking....... (I also get a sharp pain like I ahve to pee (but im pretty sure he's on my cervix) everytime he wiggles.) so unless the contractions get worse or my blood pressure goes haywire this weekend and I have vision/severe headache dizzy problems it looks like we will just keep waiting til next week. Def going to have to lay around on the couch bc Im so afraid my leg is going to give out when walkng! different dr on Monday......
Ugh, my guess is that you are measuring small because baby is so far down in your pelvis. Good that they will check it out though. Also nice that you have another appointment on Monday - usually they just keep them weekly at this point. So, I guess just relax (as much as you can at this point) and enjoy the fact that you don't have school anymore!! Sorry you didn't get the doc you wanted. That has to be super frustrating!!
If you are having vision problems, that is really no good, did the test your urine?
I agree with Laurie as far as measuring small. Sorry you didn"t have a good appt. I hope you get feeling better soon.
I am not having the vision problems right now... it was on her go immediately if list..... I measured small on Monday as well--and I had lost weight thurs to monday, AND monday to today. . this is my 3rd (?) week going 2 times. I went once a week for 1 week and they've been having me come 2 times bc of blood pressure.
Unfortunately a little discomfort is going to happen this late in the game. I'm having the weak leg issue too... and pain when baby wiggles. Just try to take it easy! You're done school now! Relax while you can. . Baby will be here soon enough.
Sorry you had to see the dr you don't care for again. I had serious nerve issues with my 2nd where I literally would go to my knees the last 2 weeks on occasion because of that lightening shock pain. Taking it easy is about all you can do unfortunately. Hope things get moving for you soon!
the worst thing is we are way beyond discomfort... and even just resting on the couch when he wiggles its shooting pain rather than just uncomfortable.
is it normal to have an ultrasound this late to check growth/fluid? That has me worried but I also am assuming that if they had been too concerned that they would have done the ultrasound today?
Perhaps try a different position if the one you're sitting in doesn't feel great...or another chair. Honestly, you're 39 weeks pregnant. It's pretty unrealistic to think you'd be pain free. Sorry.
I've heard late ultrasounds are very unreliable at estimating size. I'm not expert though.
