37 Weeks! Full Term!
Full Term! Baby can come at any time now.
I am feeling the same as I have been: swollen. I never knew being swollen could hurt so bad. My hands are especially sore in the mornings. The other night/early morning I woke up to get a drink and I couldn't open my water bottle.
So last week I had an ultrasound after discover the fluid around the baby was low. It was still low but hadn't gotten worse. I will have an ultrasound every week til baby comes now to make sure she is still safe in there.
Along with checking the fluid, the ultrasound also involved a Biophysical Profile (BPP), where they checked the heart rate, movement and breathing of the baby. She scored a perfect 10! So as long as the BPP score stays high and the fluid level does not drop, we are sticking to her scheduled arrival date of July 24th.
15 more days!
