My 37-week appointment with the doctor got canceled, and there were many doctors out for the upcoming July 4th holiday, so I just skipped it since I wasn't having any complications. I saw my doctor the next week on Friday when I was 38 weeks 4 days pregnant. We did a non-stress test, which Selah passed. I was 3cm dilated and about 80% effaced. My weight was down a little more from the previous visit, so overall I was at 26 lbs gained this pregnancy. That's the smallest gain ever for me. I asked Dr. Spaulding to schedule an induction for the following week, and she agreed. She said she would call me back with the next available time the hospital had.
I'm still feeling pretty great! This was a fun week for me as I anticipated a growth scan ultrasound and some other tests at my appointment on Thursday. Thankfully we are pretty busy here at camp, so the week has flown by. I'm feeling great, though tired. I do get backaches occasionally and Braxton-Hicks contractions are sometimes longer and take my breath away. Those are annoying. I have resumed drinking my morning cup of coffee, and the daily swelling in my ankles (and the crazy water-weight gain) has gone away completely. My weight has normalized once again.
