38 Week Prenatal Appointment

Monday, November 12, 2007


Everything looks great! Blood pressure was 110/80, fundal height is 35cm, I've gained about 4 pounds over the past 3 weeks, and the baby's heartbeat was 132. My fundal height was higher last time, so maybe the baby has dropped, or maybe there was a discrepency between the midwife who measured me last time vs. this time. I had a little sugar in my urine today, which is the first time that has happened, but since it's happened so late in my pregnancy, and considering I hardly ate anything today, and what I did eat was sugar, that is probably the reason. I'm going to try to reduce my sugar intake over the next week, eat more protein, and hopefully by next Monday I'll have a normal urinalysis again. I'll also retest on the group b next week.

I was really tired today! Samuel's sick w/ a cold, so I was up a lot w/ him. Also, I had contractions between 2am and 6am that kept me awake. They were strong enough to be uncomfortable, and definitely stronger than any contractions I had before going into labor w/ Samuel, but they disappeared eventually, just like last week.

I can't believe I just typed a long message to you and hit esc. and lost the whole thing.....
Anyway's---you're all ready Karli, so just relax and enjoy the rest of the time you have before the precious little girl makes her arrival AND- mid-night feedings come and then you are up all day with a 2 1/2 yr. old. Although that won't be as stressful as the first time around as you are an old hand at it now!

The reason I am typing this to you at 1:00 am is because I have a really bad headache ~~ actually have had one for over a week but tonight is really bad and I am drinking some warm Olvatine and checking my e-mails I didn't check today.

Love you ~~Mom

Strong contractions...it's a good sign of things to come! Especially if little girl has dropped some. I'm so excited to hear your birth story Karli. You will be great!
