I had my 37 week appointment today and she said I was 1 cm and 50% effaced! So, that's progress from last week! I know I could stay at 1 cm for a while, but it made me happy that there was at least something going on! haha.
I also am positive for GBS. Blah.
And I gained THREE POUNDS in a week. I'm not even sure how that's possible. I weighed 6 lbs more at their office than I did this morning and I basically got up and went straight there, so I'm not sure how that happened. I know I didn't have on 6 lbs of clothes!! The nurse chalked it up to swelling and then proceeded to tell me my feet were swollen (which may be true, not enough for me to tell really, but I was kind of wondering that last night) and started squeezing my ankles saying they were puffy. Umm... I don't know, I do kind of have fat ankles. But, maybe she's right and it is swelling, which I guess makes me feel better? haha.
Anyway... I hope that I keep progressing and maybe we'll have a baby soon! Fingers crossed!
Oh and my BP was high she said (taken immediately after I gained 3 lbs in a week), but then she took it again with a different cuff and it was much lower. So, hopefully it was just the cuff and my stressing over gaining 3 lbs and not actually a BP issue!
