I will be 37 1/2 weeks at this Wednesday's appointment, I think I will be asking for a woohoo check just to see what's going on, it feels like the baby is low enough it should be ready to come out out and say hi.
One of the ob's will do my GBS swab, but I also dip my own pee and check my own weight at my midwives' office. I definitely prefer it. It makes absolutely no sense to me that I leave a urine sample at my ob's office and never find out the results. It's my pee, darn it!

Thank you, MommaDucks, for my lovely siggy
