I'm sorry your blood pressure is wonky, Avery. Hopefully you can get it under control and go home. I know it's a bummer, but I'm really glad you went to have it checked. Have they run a urine sample for you to check for protein?
At 36 weeks, my doctor isn't checking fundal height anymore. Just checking weight and palpating externally. But I hope your ultrasound goes well, aeterna! I have to admit, I'm a little jealous. I had a dream last night that my skin was stretched so thin that you could see through it if the lighting was right. First I saw a foot, then an arm, then could make out the face. In my dream we were having a boy! I know I'll see him/her soon and 36 weeks is too early to be wishing baby on the outside, but I'm ready now!!
I think I found our pediatrician yesterday, which is nice! Like OBs, there is a really limited selection here and most of them practice in one of 2 groups. I'd talked to one from each group and didn't see much of a difference so I was just going to choose the one at the clinic that most of my friends go to. But I had another interview scheduled yesterday, considered cancelling, but am glad I went! My biggest problem with doctors (or care providers of any kind really) is that I'm really bad at expressing what's on my mind and so I ask questions that never really get answered. Like my OB always thinks that I have some kind of agenda behind the questions I ask and will answer what he thinks is the "bigger question", but really, I just want the information/to have a more peer-to-peer type conversation. Anyway, this lady totally got it! We talked! And I'm happy!
Laboring moms, I hope your babies are here safe and sound! You're in my thoughts.
