I'm 35 weeks and 3 days along today. I'm getting anxious to see my little girl...and the pain I'm in to stop! I wish someone would've told me that the last couple months were painful and that I would hurt every day no matter what I did (except when I sleep!)
Yesterday I had an appointment. The dr. wasn't too happy that I decided to stop taking my blood on my own. I am fine, but he wants me to take my levels this week and I see him again on the 29th to make sure my levels really are fine. So...one more week of blood taking and eating extra good so I can stop this hassle.
He also checked for dilation since I have been feeling like she's trying to push down a little. There is nothing. The cervix is still pretty high up, but it is softening. He also told me to get out of bed a little more and push myself since that's what gives me contractions and that will help the process along a little faster.
I asked if I could have Josh take me to the pool and walk laps. He said yes! YAY! So I get to go "swimming" which really means I get to walk around in the shallow end so I can get some of this weight lifted off of me for a few minutes at a time! I'm excited about this!
I also now weigh 196 lbs. I only gained 1.2 lbs since my last visit which was on the 15th (so 8 days ago...not too bad I don't think).
My Aunt Margie and cousin Meghan are in town (I think Tim might be too!)...not exactly MY town, but Sequim, which is only 45 minutes from me. They're visiting my Uncle Chuck, Aunt Boots, Uncle Guy, Aunt Lynn and cousins Jenn and Jess. Josh has yet to meet any of them (except Tim and Aunt Margie) and I have yet to meet Meghan. I can't wait to meet her and see the rest of my family! We're going up since Josh has leave and I'm assuming it's okay since I'm not dilated at all yet.
Anyway...that's the update. I have another appointment on the 29th with this Dr. to check my blood levels. Since all I'm going to eat is healthy stuff (like salad with grilled chicken) I should be good. I'm glad I like salad and have been in the mood for it!
