    my appt update

    I had my 36w1d appt today and it went pretty well. My "ob" was delivering a baby so I saw one of the other Ob providers. Not an issue to me since I really don't care who ends up delivering me because chances are that my ob won't be on call when i go into labor anyway (unless its during standard work hours or when she is on call I won't have her deliver me). Ultimately I don't care who does it anyway. I am comfortable with all of them and they all know how to catch. They all know how to do c-sections if one is needed and besides if I am able to go naturally like I want the nurses will do most of the work anyway. Anyways enough with the rambling lol. I had my GBS test today wasn't too bad. I was also checked today I am measuring 37 weeks, 1cm dilated, 50% effaced and soft. So while I am not dilated much its better than 0 so I am happy with that. And atleast I know that my body is getting ready to do what its supposed to. I go back in a week. Hopefully more progress by then. I will find out the results of the test prob next wek unless its positive then I will prob get a call. I had 2+ swelling in my feet as well. Especially in my left foot and ankle and up through my shin. And that was even with me having support stockings on. Overall not a bad appt. Hope everyone elses appts this week have gone well.
