OB Update

Monday, November 2, 2009

Say my OB today. Sugars are still good, so I'm still out of the hospital.

Aidan is still head down, yippee!! His heartbeat was 165, which is a bit higher than usual but he was wide awake and kicking at the ultrasound wand the whole time. We got a really cute picture of his face. He definitely has my nose, and really adorable chubby cheeks.

Induction is still set in my 38th week. It's a floating schedule, and my name is already on the list. Once they have availibility they will call me in to start the induction. So basically I won't know in advance, really, they just call and tell you when to show up. It can be any time that week.

I had my Group B Strep swab taken. That was simple and easy.

I also had my first internal exam. I'm closed up tight, cervix is thick, and still up high. So I'm locked up like Fort Knox. She was hoping all my Braxton Hicks and cramping were getting me somewhere, but no such luck. We might be in for a long induction!

I told my OB about my killer headaches, and how I've had one pretty much constantly since my appt last week. She said my blood pressure is fine, and I'm not spilling proteins, so she isn't worried about pre-eclampsia. I'm very happy to hear that, I've been a bit concerned. She did prescribe me Fioricet, though, to be taken as needed with a maximum of every 6 hours. I don't plan on taking it that frequently, unless my headaches don't go away. I took one about 30 minutes ago right when I got my script filled, and I feel a little drowsy and relaxed. Head still isn't completely clear though. I'm hoping it'll ease off more once I eat something.

Mike is making cheeseburgers for lunch. Words can't describe how excited I am to chow down. I've definitely hit that pregnancy "stuff my face constantly" stage.

And I officially have my first stretch marks! With only 2 weeks to go!! I'm not surprised at all, I had them at puberty, so I figured I'd get them in pregnancy, too. I don't really have any NEW stretch marks, but I did already have some on my stomach and hips from puberty, and those have sort of lengthened themselves. Apparently I'm pretty lucky though because last night the tips of them were all red and weird looking, but this morning they have already faded to look like my stretchmarks from puberty. I don't know how that works, but I'll take faded marks over blood red ones! :P

Glad to hear all is well, I can't believe you will be induced in a about a week or so!
