I had my 38-week appointment this afternoon. First of all, I had another non-stress test. It was perfect. Doctor said, "well, I didn't expect it to go away until after birth, so this is great!"I am definitely happy about that!
So how'd the rest go?
I've currently gained 25 to 27 lbs. That's good. So I ate an ice cream on the way back to work :) Any changes? No, not really. Cervix is up just a bit but still posterior. Baby has dropped just a tad. No significant change. Just.Like.Ethan.
Now I told myself this morning that there would be no change. I've told myself that it's okay. It really doesn't mean anything and so what if I'm late. It'll be okay. It'll give me more time. Here's the problem.
I've felt pretty great this pregnancy. I can't REALLY complain. But I'm 38-weeks pregnant. My body is feeling awkward and unstable and just uncomfortable. I'm not sleeping. At.All. So I'm kind of ready to just get the no sleeping because I'm feeding a baby part over with. Bring on the baby and let's get through it so maybe I in a couple months I'll be able to sleep longer than 2 hours. I'm literally up EVERY 2 hours to pee. Pain.In.My.Ass.
And well, sometimes it hurts to walk. I mean. I'm carrying around a 6lb baby. Why wouldn't I be uncomfortable. And so I was a little disappointed today when she said no change. I knew she was gonna say it. I FELT it.
But there was just a tiny bit of me that was hoping for something. ANYTHING. And so the countdown continues!
