Went to the doctor yesterday and all my tests that I had done came back just fine! My blood pressure was 120 over 80 and the baby's heartbeat was great! I am measuring very well and my doctor is very pleased with my weight gain! I am only a "fingertip" dilated and my doctor has very small hands so that is not much at all, however it is progress from the last time so that was good news! My cervix is also softening which was different from last time. I will be 38 weeks this weekend and at my next appointment on the 17th I will be getting my membranes stripped- sounds fun right?! Sometimes this speeds up the process of labor sometimes it does not so we shall see!! Did any of your do the "tricks" that are supposed to speed up labor, and were you successful or not?!
I noticed a little bit of swelling in my feet yesterday, however I was on my feet for a long time yesterday. I think I got a little bit of the nesting thing going on- I made 4 loaves of zucchini bread, cleaned the house- I cleaned around the baseboards, cleaned all four couches because they had more hair on them than the animals, cleaned the bathroom, dusted- which I never do, did laundry, and did 2 loads of dishes! Then I had a Party Lite candle show, it was busy day not to mention hotter than hot! Let's just say I plan to spend a lot of time in the pool this weekend!
