it went pretty well. i met another new dr. and she was very pleasant, compared to some of the others, and it didn't take forever, like my last few appts.
i'm up 50 lb. now, and i appreciate that i've never gotten a dr. who scolded me for my excessive prenatal weight gain, because i really can't control it.
my blood pressure was 135/80. i've never seen it that high, but they weren't concerned, and by the time i had my NST it was down to 118/73. baby's heart was 155 bpm and measured 37cm- right on, for once. and he's even lower now, and 2cm, very soft and stretchy. that's what i want to hear. i can't get in again until i'm 39 weeks, but i went ahead and made the appt. just in case.
the NST was good as usual, and fluid was at 15cm. i had a nice new nurse who brought me apple juice.
i also canceled my plans to have a tubal after birth. i'll likely go with mirena. something that lasts 5 years, anyway.
contractions have been pretty strong tonight. they're hard to walk through, but still not painful. my mom gave me a pair of shoes that were too big for her, and they're like those shape up kind. they're so ugly, but i think walking in them has given me more contractions. i'll take it.
soo, hopefully this week. doctor said, "if you make it", regarding my next appt., and nobody has said that before, so it gives me a little hope. i've just been feeling like he won't be here any time soon, for a while now. he'll come when he comes, but new babies are just so exciting, it's tough to wait.

yep, i really thought he'd be here by now, but i think he's been higher up, so i haven't been dilating as fast.
now that i feel like he'll take his time, he'll probably come soon and surprise me.
