Had my OB appointment last Friday 12/23 and cervix was dilated by 1cm but it's still thick and long. I hope by next appointment which is this coming Friday it will have some progress. Baby already measured 7lbs and 7oz last Friday when I was 37 weeks 4 days. I hope she will not be too big when I deliver her. lol. I hope she will be below 9lbs. Well we shall see. I passed the GD test at my 27 weeks checkup so I don't know why she is getting so big.
Anyway I will test my sugar tonight after I eat to rule out GD. I have been always thirsty in my entire pregnancy especially starting from 20th weeks so I have suspected that I might have GD but since I passed the test I didn't worry but now I'm concerned again. I will check tonight and post later.
Since a couple of weeks ago my feet started swollen badly and my heartburn has been getting worse and those vivid dreams and frequent bathroom trips kept me up at night. I have been exhausted in the day and I feel I'm ready for this baby to come out any time now. lol. But OB said she doesn't think the baby will be early and it's probably around due date.
Well that's so far for me. I'm getting more scared than excited as the big day approaches close. I'm concerned of baby's health and whether I can deliver her vaginally, my postpartum recovery, etc...I hope this is all normal that we have to deal with...
Wish everyone Happy Holidays and Good luck with everyone's pregnancy. It took us long to get where we are right now and we all deserve a healthy baby in our arms!!!
