Better

This weeks ob visit went much better than last week. I’m 37 weeks! Full term! I gained one pound according to them, but lost three pounds at home. I saw a real ob and like him. He’s nice.

Blood pressure was 142/80. Tiny bit high, but much better than last week. I didn’t have an internal exam. He said working from home whatever hours is comfortable for me is fine especially since my bp is down. They didn’t mention my urine sample so I assume it was fine. He said they are going to try to keep me pregnant for at least two more weeks so that I can have the highest chance of going into labor on my own and avoid a c-section as much as I can. I’m happy about that. Being induced makes me nervous.

When I checked out and was making a new appointment for next week the front scheduler person was like, “yep appointment on Tuesday if you make it to then.” I seriously doubt I will go into labor before then, but shrugs. I have had some Braxton hicks that are noticeable today. Nothing close together though.
