My dr was covering for 3 others yesterday so my appt went fast. I'm down 3 pounds since last week and have a ton of swelling so he figures I actually lost about 6 last week. My BP was 150/98 so I'm bumping up my meds but it should also help with some of the ctx. I measured at 38 weeks even with the baby dropping but my next growth scan is not until next Monday so we still don't have a good estimate of size. His eyes got big when he was looking for the HB which is still right at my pubic bone. They have not recieved my surgical report from having fibroids removed and my tubal reversal so he still has not made a decision on a c-section. He sent my HR dr a text about my sugars and they agreed that I need to add the metformin once during the day and keep taking it at night like I have been doing. He wanted me to have a cervical check after my NST. I headed over to the hospital for my NST and they were swamped like always. I had the one nurse that I cannot stand but I did not have much of a choice. She hooked me up for 15 minutes and did not even wait for a reactive strip to send me home. I counted 3 ctx during that 15 minutes but she claimed they were not showing up. Um, I'm pretty sure that I watched the numbers go up and down on the monitor. The dr had called over to tell her to check me and she flat out told me she just didnt have time. When I go back Thursday I will throw a fit if I have to deal with her again and I will definately be letting my dr know what is going on when I see him Monday.

What a crappy nurse! Let us know how Thursday goes; awesome that you are past 34 weeks and if the baby needs to come, it should be ok.
