Dear Karoliina,
I'm so glad you've been able to relax a little. I wanted to let you know that I'll be thinking of you very much for your appointment today. I hope you'll be able to get to the labs on time. I'll be looking out for your update later today. (I've got my appointment at 3:30pm today, so I'll check in after that - and also let you know how mine went. :) )

Thanks, everybody!

I've been able to relax a bit more now, but there are still some little things that make me worry. I just try to make it to the lab already tomorrow (I have the appointment with the nurse at 2 pm and the lab closes at 3 pm, so there's not necessarily enough time), so I'll find out the blood test results on Tuesday.

It's funny how my contractions have practically stopped now that I would have enough weeks to deliver anytime. :)

I'll keep you posted - thanks again for your concern!

Update us after your appt on Monday. I hope all is well. I can't wait for you to have Dani in your arms. I'm due 2 days after you! :) So, not much longer until we both have our babies safely with us. Good luck.

Karolina, Glad you are hanging in there. I really think you have been very strong and absolutely right to make your doctors stand up and pay attention. You are nearly there 37 weeks is great but please keep an eye on your symptoms and don't let the unhelpful docs put you off!

Thanks for the latest posts!

LOL, I thought I could relax more after I got the meds, but now I find myself just monitoring myself even more closely, and worrying I'm missing something, because I can't trust the BP readings to tell me if something's wrong... :D

I'm more swollen today than lately, especially my face, and I have had these "headaches" for two days - not real ones, but occasionally my head feels very heavy and throbbing, especially when I get up. It's more like how your head can feel when you're having a flu (I'm not). I'm sure it's not THE headache, but it's a change to how I've felt previously. (I've had it in the mornings also earlier, but now it happens all through the day.)

My nose has also been bleeding since yesterday. Now I don't know if these are side effects from the meds, or something to worry about. *deep sigh* I guess I'll just continue to watch myself carefully, and ask for those blood tests on Monday.

Karoliina, just thinking of you, my dear.... sounds good but I know you are so close to the end and it's crazy nerve wracking. Dani's size sounds ok but until he is in your arms and all is well, it's just going to be a crazy road. Hang in there and keep fighting for yourself if ANYTHING seems at ALL off...
