Tomorrow I will officially be at 35 weeks!
Last week I shared about the doctor's concerns - baby's got some swelling, I've got extra fluid, and my blood sugars have been fairly uncontrollable. Today we went back to the doctor for a check up.
Here is the latest news:
Baby doesn't have any additional swelling.
Mama doesn't have any additional "extra" fluid.
Mama's blood sugars are looking a lot better.
Still measuring at full term.
I've gained 3 more pounds.
The doctor did NOT push the idea of a C-section today. I was concerned that she would push it and insist on scheduling.
She has changed us to visiting with her twice a week (which means we get to drive to the north side of town 3 days a week now - hoorah).
She still wants him to be earlier than 40 weeks, but is not concerned yet about MAKING that happen.
I've had a lot of contractions today, she did not check me to see if I was dilated at all, she said she'll do that Monday.
My plan? To take a warm bath, get some pictures in my Belevation underpants, and sleep (probably in my recliner).
Then wake up and take my boys on a play date, do some work at the church, get everyone's bags ready for baby day. Then, if it's nice out, go walk the zoo!
