I just came from my 36 week appointment. aside from the continued swelling, everything is still looking good. baby is head down and facing the right way. blood pressure is still low and no protiens in the urine, so no worries about the swelling. i gained 7 pounds in 3 weeks, but he's guessing i have a couple pounds of fluids in my legs! yikes!
i'm dilated to a 1.5 and am 50% effaced. i had some contractions last night (ones i could feel, more than just braxton hicks). they were every 2-3 minutes and felt like strong period cramps, but they stopped after about 30-45 minutes. doctor was a little surprised that stuff is happening already, but didn't seem concerned and said they wouldn't stop labor if it started now. it'll be interesting to see how long before things start to progress! days? weeks? who knows?!
