38 weeks, 4 days – smooth sailing

Today, I opted out of the cervical check. My doc said it was more for curiosity sake than anything else at this point and after cramping for two days after last week’s check, I preferred to avoid that. I did, however, lose that thing they call the mucus plug after the two days of cramps following the cervical check last week, so that was interesting!

Guess what, I’m still gaining weight! Crazy! Weighed in at 158 today, up 33 lbs from pre-pregnancy and I’m totally good with that! My blood pressure was a little elevated at first check (130/70), but my doc checked again and it was just great at 118/70. She said I probably just needed a little more time to sit after getting into the exam room and I said “everything takes a lot of work right now” and she laughed. Belly measures 38 cm right along with our weeks and baby’s heart was good. I thought it sounded a lot stronger today… maybe it was just a doppler with fresh batteries : )

Yesterday, I took a 2 hour nap that could’ve been longer, but I figured baby would appreciate some water and food. I also ate pretty constantly from that point on in the day. I’ve also been real short with my hubby and wonder if the anxiety of it all (including work) is beginning to take its toll. I still feel pretty good, so I hope the crabbiness passes quickly. My hubby does, too!
