Went to my NST yesterday. The nurse I had was a ding dong. She was ready to send me home and hadn't even checked my blood pressure. When she did it was high (138/90) sooo by the time I finally got out of there I had been poked twice for blood, peed in a cup and was sent home with a big jug to collect 24hours of urine. I am taking that back today and we should have the results soon. I see my midwife on Tuesday.

My 39wk appointment:No good news for me at my appointment yesterday morning. I have not dialated or thinned out any more. My blood pressure was high, I had protein in my urine, much swelling/weight gain. Soo she had me lay on my left side awhile and rechecked my bloodpressure. Thankfully it came down to a decent level. I am to go in to L&D for a NST on Friday. My next appointment is on Tues.(exactly on my EDD) I was pretty bummed out after that appointment.Nothing is happening with me except an occasional contraction just to tease me. I think I've accepted defeat and I'm probably gonna be pregnant until the 2nd week of October. I'm so irritable and sick of people telling me to enjoy my last nights full of sleep. They aren't full of sleep... I'm awake every hour with numb limbs, aching hips and a full bladder. I'd much rather be waking up with this baby..

My feet ache and look like walrus paddles... I hope they shrink after the baby is born. This swelling makes my feet look not-so-sexy.. lol
Tuesday I found out that I'm 1cm dialated. It doesn't mean much but atleast something is happening. I go back again this Tuesday. I'll be 39wks then... Wowwww

Wednesday was my last birthing class. We took a tour of the maternity unit. I saw a cute lil baby in the nursery. That made me even more excited about meeting my lil boy. I am SO ready to get this baby out. My maternity clothes are getting too small and are now very uncomfortable. I can't sleep more then an hour or two at a time each night. My belly is burning and itching b'cuz i'm starting to get stretch marks on the lower part of my stomach. I'm moody and grumpy. My back hurts. I have a zillion complaints and on top of that I'm going nuts wondering what my baby is going to look like and just wanting to hold him in my arms. Please baby.... don't be stubborn and stay inside until 42 weeks... I'll take ya ANYTIME now. I'm anxious and excited to meet this lil baby.
