Shoes are a thing of the past now. I am officially swollen from my toes to my knees, plus my hands and my eyes. This is awesome.

My blood pressure is higher but not "high enough" to dictate a phone call to labor and delivery or my doctor. I only know this because during a recent dizzy episode he had mentioned that exact phrase after similar readings.

Agh, 5 more weeks. 3 more working. Jesus.

Starting to have a few contractions an hour, mostly off and on and they never get too strong or too close. I hope this means she's going to come soon, like 17 days from now when she's full term officially. I am just ready to have her. Ash too. He looks at me and just says how he is ready to have this child in his arms... It's sweet.

  1. You should call anyway, facial swelling can be a sign of preecclampsia and that is nothing to fool with. Call first thing.

  2. I called this morning and as my husband said "shouldn't Have chosen a hippy Mormon doctor" when his recommendation was to put my feet up and drink more water". This after I had slept about 8 hours and still swollen, kept off my feet all day today and still swollen. Oh well.

    Good thing is I thing Madelyn really dropped today and my mini contractions are becoming more painful. I am hoping this all points to a baby coming in a few weeks rather than a month from now.
