I'm feeling really good and actually even sleeping pretty decent. My hips/pelvis are even feeling better. No imminent signs of labor yet!
My appointment this week went well. My blood pressure was fine, baby was fine. Only issue is I have had protein in my urine the past two visits and I also had glucose last time. My doc said my kidneys are a bit stressed, so drink more water and rest. My face feels swollen, but my hands and feet are fine and my blood pressure is good.
When I was pregnant with Jenna I was so anxious around this time for her to get here. I was done being pregnant. But with this baby I'm actually feeling surprisingly patient. I'm ok if the baby comes at 40, 41, 42 weeks. I'm actually trying to enjoy the peace and quiet and comfort knowing the baby is safe and happy in my belly.
I think part of the reason is that I'm trying to savor these last few weeks as having only one child and giving Miss Jenna full attention. I'm a little nervous about how I'm going to balance spreading my attention to two kids. I am praying that Miss Jenna doesn't feel left out or neglected...I really hope she adjusts well to sharing the spotlight!
