35 week appt with belly pics

My appt went well. I still can't believe I'm going every week now. No GBS for me since I'm a Csect. I declined internals since I don't really need them. Ethan sounded great. I'm measuring "perfect". No protein in my urine. BP 118/76 & no weight gain over the last week... still +23 lbs for the pregnancy.

I'm starting to swell. I had to stop wearing my rings Sat because they were getting uncomfortable. I also discussed having possible "floaters" in my eye. I keep seeing things that aren't there. I thought maybe my contacts were dirty but that didn't fix the problem. OB said to let her know if it got any worse.

I'm also breathing easier. It feels like Ethan has dropped some. OB said he is definitely head down. I don't think I look lower but maybe a different shape. Either way, whereever he moved to, it feels better.

Yay for a great appointment and cute belly pics! I have those "floater" things too and I don't wear contacts. It looks like little stars floating around me. Did the doctor say what they could possibly be from?

She said they are caused by blood flow. They can sometimes be pre e related (but I don't have any other symptoms of that). They can be eye related too... I think that's what they check for when they dilate your eyes at eye appts. ?? But I know eyes can do weird things during pregnancy... my eye dr doesn't like to mess with my Rx while I'm pg.

Ok...that's starting to scare me now since they found protein in my urine and my blood pressure was a little elevated today. Especially since after that little scare I had on Sunday. Maybe I should have brought that up today. I had no clue that it could be pregnancy related.

You definitely need to keep an eye on your symptoms. Vision changes are listed on this websites symptoms... http://www.preeclampsia.org/signs-and-symptoms. Maybe something, maybe nothing... but it doesn't hurt to mention it to your OB.

Does look like you dropped a little or like you said, maybe a little bit different shape. Either way you're belly is perfect. So strage about the floaters in your eye. Never heard of that before. Glad you had a good appointment overall though.
