just had my appt! She checked me and I'm 3cm! :) also I'm still measuring 2 weeks ahead, so I'm measuring 38w, I'm 36w. Bout to be 37w.



Cause my swelling is so bad, but my tests are coming back good, they did a blood test. She said she'll call me, I'm guessing she means call me tomorrow and let me know my results. But if my blood work comes back with anything I'll probably be induced this week or next week.



She said he's head down (which he has been since 22w when I had my u/s) and he's very low. Also said I'm all baby! Which isn't bad since I'm a short person. She said that him being really low is good if I have to be induced.



Now I'm in so much pain from being checked. That was so painful and now I'm having cramping, lower back pains, I'm just in a ton of pain. I felt a really bad pain in my butt, felt like I had to poop really badly.



Hoping things progress. Or the pain stops

Idk if I'm afraid of being induced... I'm just frightened about labor! Especially if she was having a hard time trying to get in there to check me, I'm afraid of pushing something out of there! The pain of her going in was so bad, I'm scared of the pain of the baby coming out!



But I honestly want him out and to be done being pregnant! I'm in so much pain and the swelling is so bad that it causes pain in my joints on my feet and hands. And my hands constantly go numb. The numbing is getting worse too. It started with just being in the morning but now its through out the day. And its to the point where they will go numb, numbness will go away for a couple min, then they'll go numb again.



So I'm looking forward to it all just being over!

Yeah, I felt like she was putting her whole hand and arm in there. When, I think, she only used two fingers.



I'm hoping to be done soon! But I may end up going into next week. I'm really hoping he'll be here by the 20th

the numbness in your hands sounds like carpal tunnel which is common at the end with all the swelling. i have it too! if you can get a wrist brace to keep your arm straight it works SO well it's amazing.

I've been using a wrist brace. It seemed to be working... but now my fingers will still go numb even with it on. :(
