Sorry I haven't been posting as much, been sort of busy preparing everything for her arrival!
But in other news, everything seems to be going very well.

I had an appt at 11 am today, ended up waiting for almost an hour before I got called back (my Dr was the only OB in the clinic today) - did urine and weight check. I ended up gaining 2lbs, which is okay since I was loosing weight last time I went in.

Checked her out on the doppler and she was sitting at 151bpm - she has been moving around - but it seems recently the movements aren't quite as frequent - but are much bigger movements now when she does. She also seems to have hiccups at least 3 times a day.

She is measuring normally and my blood-pressure has been good - actually been going down lately which is funny since I worried as I progressed, it would only go up. Other then that a pretty normal check-up.

I have one last bi-weekly checkup before I start going weekly, from this point on I will be put on a fetal monitor to make sure she isn't under stress (due to my high blood pressure) I am also suppose to be getting a Step-B test - either this next appointment or the next.

My OB won't start going cervical checks until 37 weeks - which is a bit later then some other Doctors, or so he tells me.

Sounds like a good appointment.
My dr doesn't do the cervical check until 38weeks, I guess every doctor is different. I wish someone would of told me how weird/uncomfortable those cervical check are.

37 weeks seems pretty standard to me for cervical checks...even a week or two after that sounds normal. I can't believe how close you are now!
