April 15th - 34wks

This was a good appointment! All looks good. Excellent in fact. I didn't gain any weight in the last week and a half (that's when my last weigh-in was). Also, I'm dilated 2 centimeters all ready... and with no contractions that I'm aware of. Of course I could stay at 2 centimeters for several more weeks, but there are only 5 1/2 more weeks until the due date. Ella has dropped a little as well, though the doc didn't say if she was engaged or not. I think he would have said if she was. Yea! Amniotic fluid level looked good. Didn't get an ultrasound though, so I don't know how much Ella's weighing these days. Let's just hope that I make it to at least 37 weeks before this kid wants to come out. At 37 weeks she'll be considered full term. Today the doctor got a culture to test me for Strep B. It's a bacteria that doesn't have any symptoms, but if you're a carrier you'll be treated with antibiotics through an IV during labor and delivery. It's not a big deal.

Got yet another perscription for the rash. We'll see if this one makes me feel that much better. The doctor did say he's induced patients because of PUPPPs before. If we can control the itch to where I'm not miserable then I shouldn't need to be induced for that reason.

After the appointment we went and pregistered at the hospital and wandered down to the birthing center so we'd have a clue where to go. Finally I can see a light at the end of the tunnel!!!!

We're on a weekly schedule from now on, so the next appointment is Thursday, April 22nd at 11:50am.
