**As of November 9, 2009, please find me at my new home below.**

Some posts are pw protected, so for the super secret decoder pen....ahem... code, please email me at kimbosue2 AT hotmail DOT com.

This blog will remain open. The link is still tied to lots of IF blogs, groups, and websites. I hope someone can read through my journey and find hope and strength and know that there is a light at the end of the IF tunnel. Prayer is the key! I love all my IF girlies I met along the way, and I hope to keep your friendships going forward during this next chapter of Mommyhood. I hope to see you there!

39 Week Update

So we are back from the OB's office for the 39 week appointment. Let me start by saying that the little sore throat I started getting yesterday progressed overnight and now I sound like a frog. My throat is itchy and scratchy so I've been coughing and sneezing. I got about 2 hours of sleep last night because of the coughing... I took some Tyle.nol Cold N Sinus before going to bed.

Now here are the stats:

Weight: +2 lbs from last week
BP: 150/90, after resting 128/86
Belly: 39 1/2 cm
Baby HB: 148
Dilation: still 2 cm, same as last week
Cervix: still soft but closed, same as last week

She was a little concerned about the high BP, but said that the Tyle.nol contains Suda.fed and that can raise your BP so it could be nothing. However, to be on the safe side, I am starting another 24 urine collection immediately. I will take it to the lab at the hospital tomorrow at 5 PM. I will have my BP checked there and wait for the urine test. If it comes back ok (which the other 2 I have done during this pregnancy always have been) then I go home and wait for Peanut to come on his own. If it is abnormal, then I will be admitted to the hospital and they will start an induction Friday morning.

So I could have a baby by the weekend!

5 nice things to say...:

Here's hoping everything is normal and that Peanut can come on his/her own. But hey, I'm sure you're ready to get things moving!

Good luck!

Take good care, hope your BP and Urine results are good.

Yay! You are getting so close! Hopefully the cough and sore throat go away. I can't wait to find out if its a boy or girl!

Thanks for the award too!
