I just realized I forgot to post on Tuesday about my appt.
It was a pretty routine appt. My urine sample was good, BP was good, however, MY hb was up at 121, which is where it was when I left the hospital last week when I was in being monitored. The nurse commented that it was rather high and right away I thought "oh no, not again!" but my pee was good, so we'll see I guess. The nurse said I gained a lb and a half, however the scale was still down on the 'too much' side of things. Had she made it level it would have said the same that I was last appt, so in my books I haven't lost or gained. I hate when they can't get it right!
My belly is measuring right on, and baby girls hb was all over, ranging from the 130's - 140s. Scary that my own hb was pretty damn close to hers :eek:. Since my GBS swab was done in the hospital last week, we didn't have to do that, but we have to wait till probably next week since my nurse practitioner won't have the results, it'll go to my delivering Dr. I asked about it since I had it in the beginning, and she said chances are, since I had it then, I will have it now, and I asked about procedures. I've never had it before so Im clueless. She said procedure is, I get an antibiotic 4-5 HOURS BEFORE delivery that way it's not passed on to the baby from me. I said ok... but what happens if I'm too far gone and they can't give it to me? She said well, I don't think they worry about that then, they'd do what's needed after she's born. I have my doubts I'd be in that active labour and go that fast, I never have with any of my kids. My fastest one was 3 1/2 hours and that was only AFTER they threw the pitocin drip in me cause my water had broke but nothing was progressing. But now it's kinda something else to think/worry abit on. I know that it can cause serious issues if not treated, so now I'm kinda wondering, and anxious to get to my appt which is next Friday, so that we can go over what we should/shouldn't do if it's positive.
I also was issued my 'walking papers' just in case I go into labour before my next appt. When she said that I was like "oh... already?" lol. I thought maybe next week she woulda gave them but I guess the earlier the better in some cases.
I can't believe this week is just about over and I'll be heading on to 36 weeks where I can stop worrying and having 'talks' with her to behave herself and stay put so we can deliver close to home. The weeks are just flying by now, and I thought it would be slow. I was also hoping it would go slow because heather starts school in September and I'm kinda not looking forward to that lol.
Was a pretty good appt, and pretty standard one, but now I'm starting to feel the anxiety of how close I am. I only just did this last year and things are settled and here I am, going to start all over again... some days I'm just not sure I can do it :confused:.
