We just got home from it basically.

My urine was good, I weighed myself, staying the same. So yay! My BP was 120/78, normal for me this time around. Bishops still in the right position, which explains why my right side is the side that gets the most pain from movement. He's still got a little head room so not fully engaged. I'm measuring 37 weeks and his heartbeat was 142 bpm

I brought up my BH contractions. I told her they've been timeable between 9-11 minutes apart sitting at around 30sec to 1min long. Nothing of to big concern anymore but they're happening pretty much everyday. I told her how I was feeling today. I could barely walk, my left leg keeps buckling under me and I have charlie horses in the middle of the night. So she put me on Liquid Calcium Magnesium liquid supplement. 1 tbsp before bed and 1 when I wake up.

She has a feeling I'll be earlier then usual for me, but not super early.

We talked about how I'm feeling otherwise. My anxieties. She said what I am feeling is completely normal. I've been very anxious about birth again because I know what to expect. She said that is very normal for a 2nd time (she considers this my 2nd time even though its my 3rd baby, because its my 2nd vaginal birth) mom to feel anxious about birth again. But she did say that most of her clients who have those feelings once they're in labor relax because they know the outcome and it isn't as anxious because well, you're going through it again. That definitely helped my feelings.

We also talked about how my anxieties are also around the no control of when he'll be here. How I have no say in that haha. Everything is looking good. My birth kit should be here on the 3rd of August.

My home visit is on the 5th of August, I'll get my pool then also. She joked I'm not allowed to go into labor before my home visit though haha. I don't plan on it but who knows!

Still having BH but they've calmed down some. I'm doing okay, more so ready to be done wth my other 2 kids then the pregnancy. They're driving me nuts!

I'm so excited to have him here but my anxieties are still getting the best of me.
