38 Week Update
Monday, April 01, 2013
Today was my 38 (plus 1) week appointment. I am getting scared - this baby is already measuring approximately 8 lbs 2 oz and my first was born at 5 lb 9 oz. So this will most definitely be a different birth experience than anything I have seen. I am between 2-3 cm dilated and basically the doc said that means I could go into labor tonight or 2 weeks from now. Blah. My cervix is very soft so most likely if I have any really high blood pressure readings they will do an induction right away - last time they checked the cervix was hard as a rock so that is progress in the right direction I guess!
Today the baby has been leaning right against my sciatic nerve which is annoying and painful. I have been getting on all fours and doing cat cow stretch all day today - it does give temporary relief until she rolls back into that same position!
My blood pressure was high 140/90 today... I am seen twice a week for an ultrasound and nonstress test as well as taking my pressure. But that high reading isnt enough to have them induce yet since no other signs of preeclampsia are present.
So its still a waiting game... no fun!
As for exercise, I'll give my March results as soon as my new laptop gets delivered tomorrow... I am on Andrew's computer right now which does not have Excel so I can't even open my thumb drive files where I track all my activity (this drives me nuts - I like having all my information in order at all times haha!)
