That is great! I'm on your heels, and hoping to make it to 39/40 weeks. I have my 34 week appt Friday. My BP seems to be slowly creeping up (as in the bottom number is getting to 70 instead of staying in 60). I repeat my 24 hour urine next week, I feel like that number will be interesting to see (I was at 200 last time). I feel a little puffy lately, but it has been hot here. They won't induce me, only luck for a VBAC will be if I go into labor. I had a growth ultrasound last week and baby was weighing in around 4lb and 6oz, so about the same size.

I bet the next 3 weeks will fly by for you!!

34 week app with my MFM

Postby christina89 » Tue Aug 02, 2011 05:47 pm

So I had my 34 week app today and it turns out my OB is crazy and I really am 34 weeks! So that's good news. Babys growth has slowed a bit she still looks good but has only gained 6 oz in 2 weeks. She's 4lbs 2oz as of today although I'm told they can be off and usually are. So I'm praying that's the case we did have a different nurse do the assessment. My bp is up quite abit so I have to watch it at this point he doesn't see a need to up my meds. But I go back in two weeks and if my BP is up and babys growth is worse we will most likely deliver her that day at 36 weeks so I'm comfortable with that. I also thought it was weird but he is not taking me off my injections or LDA at all ill be taking it right up until I deliver. He said the only downside is I won't be able to have an epidural. BUT I get a very good shot at a natural birth :) scared the crap outta me but also sounded so wonderful to my husband and I ! So if all goes well for 2 weeks ill be pretty darn happy! He also said he won't let me go past 37 weeks at all! So Miss Emy will be here for sure by the 25th :) Oh yah and we bought a stroller diaper bag and a car seat all matching today! Our first big purchase!!!!!
