Today marks my last 4 week appointment, we are down to every 2 weeks. Yikes, that means it is getting close! :)
I gained some weight over the last 4 weeks, but am still down 11 pounds. My blood pressure was 110/68 (which is slightly high for me, but neither the nurse or doctor seemed concerned).
Eli's heartbeat was in the 160s, which is also higher than usual.
I asked Dr. S about this "clicking" noise I hear when the baby makes a big movement. She wasn't concerned at all, but said that it was simply my ligaments stretching because of the baby's movement.
Next, I tried to convince her to induce me on 8/17 (I am due 8/27)....but, she said that she ethically can not induce more than a week before the woman's due date. So, I am set to be induced on 8/20. That is, if Eli hasn't already make his grand entrance.
But, that isn't to say I am not going to try my darnest to have this baby on 8/17 (Jack was born on the 15th, Ady the 16th, so naturally my type A personality wants Eli to be born on the 17th.). :) I already told Z that we will be eating spicy food on the 16th. Lol.
