Had my last OB appt

So saw my OB for the last time today in the office. Her final words to me were...see you in the OR next week! Appt went well. Baby is good, she went through u/s and blood tests with me. All looks well...no pre-e. But my BP is up...she wants me resting alot. Basically I am on modified bedrest until next week. No more running around like I have been. Which does make sense...when I rest and put my feet up I have no swelling and BP is managable. I see my Internal Medicine Specialist tomorrow and do a NST then that is it until the pre-op. 8 more days...wow!

I'm so thrilled you've had such an awesome, healthy pregnancy! 8 days is totally manageable - you are in the final stretch!!!

How wonderful that this long journey is about to end, and you finally get a little girl to hold in your arms! I couldn't be happier for you! The home stretch is slow but it will be here so quickly!
