37 week appointment (XP)

I had my 37 week appt on Wednesday, everything was fine. b/p was a little low again, but nothing to be concerned about. I did the GBS swab, didn't get checked, but my belly hasn't grown in the last 2 weeks. MW said that if by next week baby hasn't had a growth spurt she'll probably refer me for an u/s.

I am so excited to have this baby at the birth center with the mw's. They are all awesome and so reassuring. Now taking the baby home after the birth...I'm not ready for yet.

Wednesday was also my second interview for a job I applied for a month or so ago. It was crazy to interview 37 weeks pregnant. Other than being hugely pg, it went really well! Hopefully I'll hear something soon.

Tonight, DH and I are going out to dinner to celebrate our anniversary (yesterday), then tomorrow is my baby shower! I am really looking forward to it!!

Happy anniversary!

I am glad the appointment went well. I have decided that growth measurements are bogus! I have been measuring behind for awhile and then the baby will grow 4 weeks in 1 week? I don't think so. Don't get me wrong, I am glad they check and I am glad they are proactive but it ends up worrying me like crazy.

I hope that baby grows!

Happy anniversary! Sounds like you have a great weekend ahead of you! I agree with Erin that the measurements are totally arbitrary... I'm sure everything is just fine!

I wouldn't worry too much about the measurements...I had a similar thing happen with Brandon a few weeks before he was born and he was a really good size. Happy Anniversary and I hope you enjoy your baby shower.
