Wednesday Appointments

Going to go ahead and start this thread. I have one today at 2:30 ET and I'm scheduled for an u/s since I'm "advanced maternal age".

I think I've seen at least one other person say they had an appointment today...who else is with me?

I'll come back and post here after my checkup. Smile

Just got back from mine. My bp was high for me but not high in general. Prob just because I'm not feeling great today and just feel off. Ethan only got a 6 out of 10 on his bpp today but did really good on his nst. Normally it is the other way around. I had 2 pretty strong contractions during the nst but talked them out of checking me since I never dialate. Started having contractions about every 8 mins on the way home and just feeling crampy and some pressure. I'm sure it is probably nothing as none of that is new to me. Getting ready to lay down and see if everything goes away or if I have to take med. The NP did say that as of Monday I don't have to take the mag oxide or terbutaline if I start having close contractions so that is good new. They went ahead and penciled me in for the 25th but didn't give me a time yet as I think we are all pretty sure I will go before then. I think that's about it.

I just got back from mine, not much to report. BP was 125/78, baby HR was 140s. She didn't tell me what baby was measuring at. Was told eat more protein again. Cervix wasn't checked, I was on the fence about if I would do it if the offered, I have checked it myself and can get a couple fingers in and it is really quite short... nothing else to report. Birthing class Saturday, woohoo.

Sorry I'm so late updating. It's been a long day and haven't been on my phone it near a computer since my appointment...not to mention it was totally nothing to report. Wink

My BP is fine, weight...I don't think changed much but no actual numbers were mentioned, had a BPP u/s and everything looked good with baby...good fluid level, etc. I was interested to hear what they estimated her weight at just as a general idea of where she is but when I asked at the end the tech hadn't even measured that. Then the nurse put me in an exam room and gave me a cover to undress for a check. I'm curious if any change since the 1.5 cm at 35 weeks so I was cool with that. Then doc comes in and is surprised they had me do that. He said no reason to check this week and unless I wanted to he would just let me pass. So no check either. Bummer!

I'm feeling like nothing major is happening this week. Crazy after feeling like it was probably any day from what I was feeling last week. I have more energy and feel better this week than I have for a while. She just might stay put to 40 wks!

Also, meant to say she looks so cramped on the u/s. She's so big now when they scan it only can show small sections of her at a time. So it's harder to make out what you are seeing, like it's zoomed in but it's just that she is big. Funny how different and so much change from just 3 weeks ago. Smile

Glad the appt was good Lynn. I remember my late u/s with DD...she was SO squished!!!! It was funny, her face was like the WHOLE screen on one picture! That was at like 34 weeks. I bet yours was even more squished. I think my current 39 weeker is doing some funky moves in there...not sure how he/she has any room to even move. I'm all baby!

YAY for more energy! I've had more energy the last week and a bit too. I think mine is because of the iron supplements though.
