Had my 36 week appt. My blood pressure was a little elevated, but not too bad and there is protein in my urine. My doctor said to just monitor my bp at home and call if I have anymore swelling, headaches, or blurred vision. Not too much cervical change since last week. I was dilated to 2 CM and 80% effaced last week. I am now over 2, but not quite 3 CM yet. She said I'm closer to 3 so she just said I'm 3. Baby's head is engaged and she said "I think it will be any day now!" I'm sure she jinxed me by saying that and I will probably go past 40 weeks now. LOL! DH said that I have to have her before September 17th because there is a really good boxing match on. Men!!
I brought up my unfortunate hemorrhoid situation and she said to use tuks pads and swimming even can help take the pressure off. She said that it makes sense that I have them now and not last time since women are more prone to them in subsequent pregnancies and I'm also carrying a bigger baby now. The things us women go through! I wish men had just a tiny taste of this....they'd go running for the hills! LOL!
3 more days until I'm term!!!
