You know in the last week I have had more people/strangers approach me and ask me when I am due. Most of the people will say something funny like "due at what 6pm tonight" or "due yesterday" "I bet you are due any day now." Strange thing is I am not due till March 28th. Last night at Olive Garden I had so many people do a double take when they saw me. I'm not sure if it was me being sensitive but I felt like all eyes on me. Not a good or a bad thing just noticed it. Maybe it was the dress I was wearing... my pastor did say to me when I wore it a few weeks ago "the 70's are calling and they want their dress back." LOL it is a very comfortable dress and I love not having to wear jeans... leggings = more comfort! :)
So what did the Doctor say today?
We did not check if I was dilated or effaced today but she said we could next week if I don't have baby before then. Baby's heartbeat was 139! I did not gain any weight this last week so that is nice to hear! Doc said my sugar in my urine was a bit elevated today but I think I will blame that on the raspberry lemonade I had at the Olive Garden, and the 2 glasses of apple juice I had yesterday. (I also ate some of the robin eggs... Easter candy.) So she advised me to be more careful with my food choices! She said I am all in the clear to have the baby any day with no worries. She said full term is considered 38 weeks but 37 is safe and normal. :) Have I mentioned that I am ready?? Doctor also told me that she wanted my contractions to be 5 minutes apart for at least an hour before I go to the hospital. This is new to me because with my daughter my water broke and that was obvious a time to head to the hospital. Not sure if I want the same experience where my water breaks or if i do the whole contraction timing! All morning yesterday it was consistent with 20 minutes apart but after I woke from my nap they were gone.
