Just had my 37 week check up yesterday. Saturday the 17th is official 37 weeks. The Dr. said the baby was head down but resting on his side and still kind of high up. Well, maybe the baby (Alex) heard that and started to move because today I have strong pressure bearing down on the pelvic area that I have not ever had before.
I told the Dr. that I want to try for vaginal although he seems to be preparing me for the possibility of a C-section. Not sure if it's what he wants to do or what he thinks may happen? I know he is a good surgeon so maybe he leans towards that way. He had wanted me to do a voluntary C section but I said no.
I am getting kind of nervous about the whole delivery thing and taking care of baby but excited at the same time. Unlike Kim who is very active and gained little weight, I quit exercising a month or more ago and really am not very active. I have gained a lot of weight. Blood pressure was high a couple times but went down during monitoring in the hospital. I think it was due to my stepdaughters stressing me out with their poor behavior. If they are at their mom's, my blood pressure is fine.
Anyway, my back is hurting so enough for now. Reading the above, it sounds like I am a real complainer, right?!! Sorry! Just feeling uncomfortable and ready to drop some of this weight! My stomach is so "packed" with baby that it's hard to move!
