Normal appointment today with my favorite of the three midwives. I've gained 5 pounds in the last 2 weeks, putting me at a total gain of 30 pounds. Not awful, but I was hoping to stay at 30 and not go over. Easter candy certainly isn't going to help with that! My blood pressure again was a bit high for me (122/76) but still very much normal. I've had a tiny bit of swelling in my feet here and there, but I'm really the only one that notices. I also had my GBS test today and will find out the results next week. My curiousity got the best of me, so I asked my midwife to do an internal check. I'm at 1cm dilated and "still pretty thick." I know that means nothing really at this point, but at least I know. Baby's heart rate is perfect as usual in the 140s. Her head is most certainly down still. My midwife said she didn't feel like she's very big at this point. I think my crazy appetite will fix that, though I really doubt she'll be much different in size to Lily (she was 7lb 2oz at birth). I also got my prescription for Zoloft today. I'm feeling like this will be a good way to stay proactive and ward off any post partum depression. So a very good appointment. And just for fun, here are some comparison belly pics.

This is me 2 years ago at 36w 2d with Lily (pardon how awful I look from the swelling in my face and lack of sleep):

And here I am the other day at 36w 2d (and with a new haircut!)

Yay for a perfect appt. You look similar in your pictures except just a little bigger this time around, but it looks like you're carrying the same. Cute that you are wearing the same shirt.

You are beautiful! Great appointment!

You'll have to tell me about zoloft some day. I feel like I'm fighting a big cloud over my head all the time but I can't tell if it's just the stress of life or something deeper. My mom tried to get me to go on it in my early 20's.
