Highlights from my 39 week appt this morning:
*down one pound from last week
*BP up higher than they would like
*Baby's heart beat was 156bpm
*I passed the Non-stress test
*cervix very soft but not dialated enough to really start anything down there, lol.
I go back on Monday for a BP recheck since it's been textbook for the whole pregnancy and now that's it's higher, they are a little concerned. My Dr did say that it's very unusual for someone on their 5th fullterm pregnancy to develop toxemia, when they never had a problem before....unusual but no impossible. They want to keep an extra eye on me :)
The nurse said that maybe I would go in before then...yeah, fat chance, lol.
Baby girl was moving all around, doing her thing...8 days and counting....
