I am 33 weeks today and had an appt yesterday. BP was in the hundred-teens (can't remember the exact measurement) over 60-something I think. Weight gain... 4.6 lbs in 2 weeks. :P Maybe it was the heavy shirt I was wearing....
I brought my birth plan to my dr (link in siggy to the first draft) and she pretty much just read through it and nodded the whole way. It was funny, too, right before she read my line on how I wanted to push, she mentioned "laboring down" and to push when you feel the urge. Then she started reading again where I wrote "I would like to push with my body's own urges..."
I asked her if she could tell the baby's position, and so while I was still lying down after being measured (measured 32 yesterday) and heart listened to, she felt the baby. I'm sure he/she has moved around again since then but at the appt baby was head down, facing my left side.
She also mentioned what would happen if I went late. She said that at 41 weeks she would want me to start having semiweekly non stress tests. Then she said something about induction in the same breath as 43 weeks. FORTY-THREE weeks??? I was SO excited to hear that number. I have never EVER heard of a doctor letting someone be pregnant for so long. That extra time will definitely give me a much better chance of going into labor on my own, when MY body and MY baby are ready for it.
Did I say yet that I love my dr?
