I had my 39 week appt. I gained 5 lbs this week. I was at 10 lbs total gained just a couple weeks ago, but ugh this swelling is killing me! BP was a bit high for me again but urine was good so no worries. I'm measuring at 44 weeks now :rolleyes:. I can really feel it to be honest, I've never been this uncomfortable before. I can't lay down anymore, I basically sleep sitting up because my belly is so heavy when I lay down it causes round ligament pain and that starts up contractions Grrr! I don't know how twin mamas do it!
Not too much change to my cervix, I'm not quite 2cm and almost fully effaced. But the good news is his head is right there, super low. Last week he was still pretty high, he'd burrow down while I was up walking or sitting, but whenever I was laying he floated up into my lungs lol. She asked me if I wanted the induction yet and I declined. As miserable as I am I know my best chance for a VBAC is going myself, I'm 100% determined.... or maybe stubborn :p.
Overall I'm happy with the way things are going but I'm getting discouraged that all the pre labor I'm having isn't doing anything except rob me of sleep and sanity! I want this over with already, but I'm
terrified of another c-section.
So here's my first ever belly pic! Sorry about the pic's poor quality (and the ugly stretch marks!) and sorry about the cat I couldn't get her out of the pic!
