37 weeks!
Thu, 11-08-2012 - 12:47pm

 Had my 37 week appt today.  All is well.  Lost a pound since last week and didn't gain any the last appointment. I'm sure the little bit of nausea I have again isn't helping that. She didn't seem worried though. BP was 118/76, so that was good. Told her besides being sick the entire first half I feel like I've had a pretty good pregnancy, not much to complain about. Only major thing is my hips.  They hurt SOOOO bad at night I'm barely sleeping anymore. She said baby's head is definitely down which is why they're sore.   Still not dilated at all. Good thing I'm having another c-section or that might start to get disappointing with all the contractions I’ve been having  Smile

I've only gained 19 pounds total. I asked her if everything seemed okay. I'm not too worried, but it gets hard not to think about it when every time somebody asks me when I'm due they looked shocked and tell me how small I look. I don't think I'm huge, but I don't think I'm that small. She said everything looks good and I've been measuring right on at each appt. She said she obviously doesn't expect baby to be big, but doesn't seemed to be concerned at all. She figured baby will be about 7 lbs. Made me feel a little better.  Why do people have to open their mouths at all about a pregnant woman’s size???

And, DH came home with a terrible cold last night.  I am avoiding him like the plague!!  Only 12 days to go until my c-section.  EEK!!

So close to meeting your little one!!   I can't wait to be 37 weeks....just to be able to say I'm full term and stop worrying about pre-term contractions.  Sending you lots of easy labor vibes for when the time comes!!

You're so close! I hope you don't catch that nasty cold. Don't worry too much about your weight gain, as long as baby is healthy. KUP
