Almost 36 week Dr Appt

Had my weekly follow up today. My BP was slightly elevated and pulse was a little fast. I have a ton of swelling and gained about 3 lbs this week. Baby sounds great, hear rate was 138. He has fully turned and is now head down. Dr checked me again today but no change in cervix. She said baby is getting lower. Had my strep B swab today as well. I asked about my induction date but she wants to wait to see if we are going to need to schedule it. She said she did not feel I would make it to 39 weeks, which is when she would induce. Glad it's getting close to the end. I am ready to meet this little guy! My girls are too. My daughter told me last week that baby would be born in ten days. Today she told me in 4 days. Both which happen to be Friday the 23rd. I am still thinking it will be closer to 10/9. Both girls were ten days early and I have a feeling this little man is going to decide to stay in until then if not later.

Glad to hear your appt went well. Hope the swelling gets better and I know we're all getting anxious to meet our little ones!! The Dr. had to remind me not to get too rushed and let her bake a lil longer.

My doctor was excited I made it this far. She thought for sure he would be born by now. It's been a rough one this time around but I agree, the longer he bakes the better. I am just so excited to meet our little guy and see the girl's reactions.

Sounds like an overall good appt! Yay that he's turned head down for you!

I'm glad he's head down! I wouldn't wish a breech baby on anyone :). 10 days early sounds good, I hope he stays in until then!

Hey who knows...DS was insistent that this LO was a girl and he was right, maybe your girls are too. I hope your swelling goes down, its always more uncomfortable when your swollen! Hopefully he comes soon, but not too soon!
