36/37 week check up
Tuesday, January 06, 2009
Ok.. so i just got home from the dr's office.. and here's my stats..
BP 116/74 slightly elevated from 'normal' for me..but the dr wasn't concerned because there wasn't any proteins in my 'dixie cup' hehe..
weight.. 220.8 (GOOD LORD can i cry yet??)
baby is measuring big from the outside, and dr was i think a bit concerned with this.. so i'm going next week for another ultrasound along with my next check up.
i guess i didn't try hard enough over the past several weeks to keep my weight in check.. kinda hard to do when your bathroom scale needs a new battery and you're too lazy to change it LOL! I was pretty swollen again today, so i'm guessing several pounds of my weigh in is water retention.. must work on that..
I've a feeling that if my Ultrasound comes back that baby is pretty big, that they'll want to induce me.. fine by me.. i've just heard some not so great things about being induced.. but i don't want to be pushing out a 10lb baby either ya know? my last one was 9lb 6oz.. the largest baby of all 3..of course it was a boy..and boys tend to be larger then girls at birth..
the good thing is, at this point he's not considered a preemie, but term so all's good :)
My mom still swears i'll be in the hospital in 2 days.. we shall see.. though i was only 1cm dialated and not even effaced..so i don't think that's an accurate prediction.. but who knows..
So that's it for baby updates.. i've got more pregnancy woes and gripes then Carter had liver pills..but who wants to hear a beached whale complain? ... didn't think so LOL!
so have a great week, and there'll be another update come the 14th.. if i make it that long LMAO!
HAPPY NUDE BEERS! hehe ;)
