37 weeks and 2 day Pictures & Check Up

Yesterday was my 37 week check up. It went very well. I've gained 3 pounds. My blood pressure was a lot better this time, 120/80. I mentioned to the nurse how I had been having cramps on Sunday that would start in my stomach and wrap around to my back. She wanted me to give another specimen just in case I had UTI. I haven't heard anything so I apparently don't have one. I didn't think I did. I also mentioned how I had no energy on Sunday. She checked my hemoglobins and my iron count is perfect. Everything I'm experiencing is just because I'm getting to end of this pregnancy.

I met with the Nurse Practitioner. She checked the baby's heartbeat and his bpm is 139. She measured my stomach and I'm still at 36cm. She said that just shows that he's dropped further down. I asked her how much she thinks he may weigh when he's born. She said she thinks he will be 7+ lbs. That was my guess too. All in all it was a good appointment. I go back next Tuesday at 11am. Starting next week they will be checking my cervix until the time he's born.

Darlene took my pics yesterday. They turned out alright. I was so tired that it was hard to keep my eyes open.

Despite the fact he doesn't have much room to move, he's still a wiggly worm. He's been having more hiccups again. Its such a funny feeling.


  1. I'm glad that your blood pressure was better. I'm sorry you've been so tired, but he'll be here soon!
