OB appt and 35 week belly pic

So had my appt yesterday with my OB. Things are looking good. BP is up but it is looking like it is just higher BP and not pre-e. No protein in urine. Baby HB was in 140's. I am measuring 2 weeks ahead which is normal for me. Did the GBS test even though I am having a c-section. I see her weekly until I deliver...which is just two more times appts then delivery - crazy! She said wow - over 35 weeks. I said yep, I just have just about made it. She looks at me and says Melanie, you did make it. I just broke down. I always hoped and tried to think positive that this pg would go to term but to actually be at this stage is overwhelming....in a good way. She joked that after having a 1 1/2 pound baby that me having this baby will be like me having a 2 year old Smile And when I talked to her about the kidney problem she said she sees many of these cases that just resolve themselves. She thinks sometimes people are over tested and we find out things that just stress us and then when baby comes all is well. Hopefully this will be one of those times. I see an urologist tomorrow so will find out more. I am so happy with my OB! And here is a pic from last weekend.
