well dang i feel like a dork posting about my appt when we are having briths now, but oh well.
My appt went good bp was great, I have only gained 2 lbs in the last 5 weeks( which really helps balance out the fifty I gained until then). Measuring good. All in all a good appt. Next week I will do the group b test, my head hurt so bad at the last appt that she didnt want to poke and prod me, lol.
Oh and my c section is scheduled for June 15@1pm. Really wish it was first thing in the morning but such is life.

Glad your appointment went well and you have a date and time for your c-section. The 15th will be here before you know it!

Good luck Kristen! Just curious.. why are they doing the GBS test when you are having a C-Section? Baby can only get it if goes through the birth canal I thought? Not too much longer!

Kristen I'm glad you finally got your c-section scheduled, and yay for only gaining 2 pounds. Hang in there, just 15 days.

Katie - My OB also did the GBS test even though I was already scheduled for a c-section (he did it with my last LO too). I believe the reasoning is that you just never know what these LOs are going to do, Breech babies can suddenly turn and descend or you can go into labor or have your water break before you get to your scheduled section date. Better to be safe than sorry I guess.
