11.24.08 part 2

Appointment Update:

Things are beginning to get interesting 'round here!

So the nurse takes my BP and asks if it's been going up lately. It hasn't, but she left the room to get the Dr. who just wanted me to lay on my side for a few minutes. When she retook it, it was down to a better rate (not sure what it was, but the first one was 142/118, jeez!)

We discussed Pre-eclampsia and if I have any headaches, I'm go to to L&D, 'nuf said. With all the swelling at a 5lb weight difference between Sat and Sun (although urine protein is fine and no headaches as of yet), we're playing it safe at this point.

Still 2cm, 60% effaced. Baby's hb good.

Went ahead with the GBS test since I may not be pg anymore at 36 weeks when she usually does it. My SIL was right, it was't lovely, but it wasn't awful. And nothing got stuck up anyone's backside:)

My doctor FINALLY said "I think you're going to have this baby early." Well, welcome to the club, lady! I'm glad we can finally agree on something! The goal is to get to 35 weeks, which according to her is 10 more days (I go by Mondays, she goes by Thursdays).

She also agreed that another u/s would be good to get another weight measurement.

All in all it was a good appt. More eventful than usual, but I'm glad she's taking me more seriously. I was beginning to get frustrated with her laid-back approach to everything. I just can't believe how close we *could* be. Then again, I could be sitting here at 41 weeks twiddling my thumbs:) But it's hard to imagine at this point.
