So, it was a good 33/34 week appointment. Blood pressure is fine, and I'm at 21 lbs gained. I'm measuring at 35 weeks. I shared with my midwife that I'd been having a lot of BH's in the past week and she offered to check me for my own piece of mind. Turns out I'm 1cm dilated and 50% effaced. She also said she wouldn't be surprised if this LO was born in the next three weeks. My 1st daughter was born at 35 weeks so I'm starting to get a little antsy because I'm getting close to that point in this pregnancy. We also talked about me barking orders at my DH about stuff that needs to get done and she said I'd better tell him to step on it. LOL.
Can't wait to hit the 37 mark when it's safe to say "hooray for progress!" How much did your 35 week baby weigh? Did she have to spend any time in NICU? I hope dh steps up so you can take it easy!
My daughter was 6lbs 1oz at 35 weeks. She was big for that age! And she only spent a night in the stepdown nursery so they could observe her (Longest 24 hours of my life!). Hopefully, if this one shows up early it will go as smoothly. I just keep hoping that we make it to 35 weeks at least.
That's great things went so well last time! I had DD at 41 weeks and she only weighed 6 lbs. 3 oz! I feel like we are so close to the "safe" point, but it seems like it's taking forever to get there. Take it easy!
