Lots went on this doc appt! LOL.
-I was concerned about this leakage i've been having, midwife tested it, and it's not amniotic fluid so that's good, guess I am just a leaky person! LOL EWW.
-weight 134 (so I've gained 25 lbs all together) yay!
-Logan's HR was in the 130's almost 140's.
-Belly measuring a week ahead at 38 weeks.
-I am 2cm! (Last week 1cm!) yay!
-Baby still high up though.
They drew my blood again for iron...its always low..im supposed to be taking my iron pills and she asked me if i was taking them and i sheepishly said noo.....lol. so I hope it doesn't come back low again or else i guess ill have to force my self to take the pills.
She talked to me about labor, and she basically went through it fast since this is my 3rd. lol
and...I had the group B test............uhhh..since when do we do it ourselves?!
Last 2 pregnancies I was using a different doctor, not a midwife...i've never done this test myself..they usually do it! and I don't remember it being in the anus?? I suppose it probably was and i just don't remember because I wasn't the one doing it!...anyways,
so I go to pee in the cup as usual, and she hands me a swab and says "youve done this before right?" and im like "uh not myself...." and she shows me this diagram on the wall. I have to stick the swab 2cm in the hooha, and 1cm in the bootay......WHAT! NOTHING is going in my booty! I am really picky about that! (I had a bad experience with an ex bf years ago that had to do with anal sex..)
anyways, so I take the swab, put it in the hooha, and I couldn't bring myself to shove this thing up my butt, so I just swabbed around it. :eek: I mean if the test comes out wrong, oops! but I am not putting that there! I don't see why the midwife didn't do it?? anyways...when you guys did the test, did the doc/midwife do it? or did you??
anyways (sorry this is long!) my last doc REFUSED and looked at me like I am an idiot when I asked about induction. They said not until im at least 41 weeks.
well my midwife said that since this is my 3rd, I am already progressing, and with my maternity leave dates, she said she'd have no probably inducing me at 39+ weeks. yay!!!
DS1 starts preschool sept 6, I don't want him or I to miss his first days! SO, I am HOPING Logan either comes next week, OR waits until the weekend of the 10th, and next week my midwife says we can talk about it more and schedule an induction then if I want one, and she asked me what date I am thinking, and I said the weekend of the 10th, (edd is the 13th, so its only a couple days early anyway). so I am super excited that shes supportive of an induction. I only have one week maternity leave and the weekend of the 10th would be perfect, i def. dont want to go over 40wks.
anyways so all in all I think it was a great appt! besides the weird group b swabbing!
