37 weeks

The end is near. We now have less than two weeks to the scheduled C-section! I can hardly believe it’s almost time! Seriously, where did the time go in this pregnancy?

Yesterday I woke with a splitting headache and sinus drainage. Yay. I told Rick that I don’t have time to get sick right now. I took mucinex and tylenol. I had my weekly appointment, so while there I asked to take Sudafed as well and I’ve been given permission to take it for a few days. If I’m not better by Friday, they’ll prescribe an antibiotic. The goal is to get rid of this crud before the baby gets here. I hope we can make that goal since the crud normally likes to stick with me for long periods of time.

The rest of the appt. went well. I’m now dilated to 1 cm, and still not very effaced (not given a number). Chances are good that we’ll make the scheduled date (we’ll keep our fingers crossed). My blood pressure was fine and the baby’s heartrate was in the 150s. I gained 5 lbs. in the past week, putting me to +23 overall for this pregnancy. Not bad at all!

Since I have no belly shot, I’ll leave you with a scene from yesterday. Yesterday, I walked out of our office to find a bunch of guys from our office waiting at the elevators. One of them had pushed the button as I walked out. Another proclaimed, “You’re still here!” when I walked out. I told him, “Yep, I’ve got two more weeks.” At that moment the elevator doors opened and I stepped in, and no one else did. I asked if they were still waiting on someone, and the answer was, “Yeah I think so.” So hopefully that was true and they weren’t just afraid to get on the elevator with the very pregnant woman. 🙂 It certainly gave me a good laugh on my way to lunch at the very least!
