I just got home from the dr appointment. I was schedualed to see a nurse practitioner, but they had me see my dr who was in the office anyway. He said everything is normal...lol... I'm so relieved. The reason he gave for the discharge was because of double the hormones. The contractions are normal because my body is thinking that I'm closer than I truly am. I'm measuring 35weeks today. I asked about being futher along and he said not by the u/s measurements. I am dialated about one cm, nothing to worry about. I have six weeks to go as far as them trying to stop labor if I happen to go into it. That just happens to be just about Drew's b-day...lol... I'm much more relaxed now that I got to see my dr... Isn't it funny how that works... I'm at the point where I go in for weekly appointments now... I'm really starting to get excited now. I'm sleeping a lot so I won't be posting too much unless it's at three in the morning when they are moving so much I can't sleep. I have an u/s next week so that should tell me a whole lot more as far as how they are positioned and if a vag birth is possible. Heart rates are good and I'm able to breath again cause they have dropped. I have to pee all the time again though, that really didn't go away. I'm timing contractions now to make sure they aren't getting regular and are just the b/h ones. He was glad to hear I came in last week and happy to see me today even without an appointment. My blood pressure is up to 136/70... It's still good. I was running at 110/60. No protein in my urine as of yet. My swelling is still pretty bad though, no matter how much water I drink. He told me to take it easy again. I told him my comp is my best friend at the moment and that it's practically my only link to the outside world and he laughed... I love my dr. He is so great. I would recommend him to anyone in this area!... Anyway, I hope this lets all of you relax cause I know you were worried. I'm going to go take a nap since one of my little guys decided to sleep on my kidney last night so I didn't sleep well at all... That hurt.... Six weeks and counting.... *sigh* I kind of hope it goes by fast, but not too fast. I will keep you all posted in any way I can. Thank you all so much for being a life line to other adults... Otherwise I'd be talking a lot more to my cats... I will check back again very soon...
