37 weeks and 4 days

So today's visit was a bit stressful. The stupid NST machine at the clinic is WAY too old! I wasn't even clicking the button indicating I was feeling baby move and it was marking that I had. The machine makes a click sound when you click it and if the wire connected to the clicker moved slightly it would register a click! Then it completely stopped doing anything. Plus baby decided he didn't want to cooperate. They had me downing ice cold water and poking baby. I had to pee so bad and peed several times after that while we wanted for the rest of my appointment. Next thing we had done was the ultrasound to check the fluid level. It is looking good and in the normal range. Baby has shifted some and is closer to heads down but not straight down. Close enough though and hopefully he stays that way!
I've made some progress from last week's fingertip dilated. I am currently about 2cm dilated and 50% effaced. Doctor says at least one more week. Praying we continue to make progress and baby stays at least mostly heads down.

Quick before I head to bed!

Appointment was quick today. Weight was up too much in my opinion but I think some of it is water weight.....I hope! Hb nice and strong and doc says my numbers look good. Got a slip for another ultrasound and scheduled that for next Tuesday. Another update on fetal growth and amniotic fluid.

Okay.....lagging behind a bit!

So I forgot post anything about my 34wk4dys apppointment. Nothing other than the usual everything looks good. Still doing good with the lovely GD. Well, other than dinner tonight and getting a 150 but I should have known better than to eat two biscuits with the sausage gravy! I was hungry and actually didn't eat the whole two since I gave some to Eric. Had apple too though which added to the carb load. So we are getting, or at least I am, quite anxious for this little guy to be here. I'm getting extremely uncomfortable. Something I do not remember experiencing with Ryleigh at all.
