36.5 week appointment

Wed, 10-24-2012 - 8:38pm

So the u/s went really well. The good news is my cervix is nice and long and not dialated at all. The other good news is both the OC and GBS came back negative!! So excited about all of that and I am still on track for November 2! BUT my BP has jumped from 107/72 to 123/90 in just one week so I need to go back again tomorrow.Frown Hopefully it is just a fluke since there was no protien in my urine. I will keep everyone updated if I can.

Sorry I did not update everyone yesterday, my DH had off so we went to the bookstore and natural foods store after. My bp was down to 120/80 so much better. My ob also checked my oxygen level and my legs for swelling and everything checked out just fine (even with a baby butt in my ribs O2 was at 98%). 

The one thing I forgot to tell eveyone about the u/s was the baby is head down, but she has her legs above her head with her arms holding on to them. LOL oh so cute!

Any update? I hope all is well. Glad to hear that your OC and GBS came back negative, and baby should hold out until you're scheduled.

katie- My BP has been doing the same thing as of late. The first time they took it last week it was 143/90 and then they took it again after my apt and it was 114/78.

Yay, happy to hear that you had a good appointment and that your labs came back fine! Hopefully the BP thing was just a fluke, although I do know that BP can start to go up towards the end of pregnancy. Mine has been up the past couple of days, and I started majorly swelling yesterday, but there was no protein in my urine, so my dr. didn't seem at all concerned (maybe because it was only up to 124/80 from the 100s/60s it usually is). I'll be crossing my fingers that your BP is better today :-)

I'd almost bet that you BP was a result of nerves leading up to the appointment, Katie.  Mine does that periodically.  You are SO CLOSE!!
