I’m “full term” tomorrow — 37 weeks!
I had a doctor’s appointment scheduled for tomorrow, but since I started to have some swelling (just in my left leg/foot, not anywhere else), we moved it up to today. I wasn’t able to see my OB (she was in surgery), but I saw one of the midwives in her office.
Great news? Blood pressure was excellent!
Good news? Nothing to worry about with the foot swelling. It’s likely because of the position of the baby since nothing else is really swelling. They took a urine sample and will test for things, but since I haven’t heard back yet, I’m probably okay.
Not as good news? Gained 2 pounds since last week – pretty much all this weekend. I blame the swelling. It couldn’t possibly be the 3 pieces of my mom’s lasagna that I had on Saturday while celebrating my nephew’s first birthday. Couldn’t be.
Nothing to do, but to see the doctor again in a week!
