so i updated yesterday buttt heres my weekly survey stuff. ohhh doc said im 1cm dilated and 30-40% effaced. wooo hoo almost show time. ive gained 5 lbs in the past week and asked him about it since i was concerned but he said my blood pressure is great, better than his even, so he thinks right now its just the swelling. he said just make sure i watch my blood pressure and my vision and if anything changes give him a call. time to recheck that my hospital bag is really packed and clean the house cause im sure we will have lots of visitors very soon.
oh ! when i at the office [which also does gyn, family medicine and pediatrics] this random patient came and touched my belly ! it surprised me so i didn’t look at her crazy and also because she seemed so genuinely happy for me lol. she was telling all the nurses that i was almost there and they kind of just smiled and nodded cause they see me every week so they know lol, and the random lady told me ill be ready in a week O_O
