Re: July Mommies Check-In

I just passed the 36 week mark but baby is nice and cozy in there. My doctor told me that the standard procedure is to start internal exams at 36 weeks (my appointment is Thursday) but I think I'm going to hold off on starting them b/c I don't feel like anything is going on.

Otherwise, things are great!

Re: July Mommies Check-In

I'm going on the 19th for my 37 week checkup and my first internal. So until then... i have nothing to report. Chat Icon

Although i will say that i know someone who was due 2 days after me and she just had her baby last night. Chat Icon I'm due july 10th.

So it make me panic a little since we're so not ready!

So get those car seats installed ladies, wash everything that needs to be washed, pack your hospital bag, etc... because you never know! Chat Icon

Re: July Mommies Check-In

I am 35 weeks on Thursday. I have my 36 weeks appointment next week where we will also do a growth sono. Per the last growth sono I had at 32 weeks they said I was trending towards an 8 pound baby.

I had my shower on Sunday so my house looks like a hurricane hit it with stuff all over the place! I still have not received my crib either so I am mildly panicking about that.

Re: July Mommies Check-In

ill be 37w thurs, i cant wait till its over!!!!

everyone seems to know when they are having an internal, if they are getting another sono, the position of the baby, all that good stuff and i dont know anything! i feel like my dr dosnt keep me very informed. :( i think when i go in on thurs im gonna ask what i have to expect for the next couple of weeks.

anyways, i think the baby has dropped because my stomach seems to "hang" and i get these feelings in my va jay jay which i assume is the baby moving around? or could it be my cervix dialating? who knows ... all i do know is that im counting down the days!!!!

Re: July Mommies Check-In

I will be 37 weeks tomorrow. My official due date is July 2nd but it looks like this Chat Icon may be debuting in June instead.

Had an internal yesterday. Cervix is anterior, 40% effaced, and 1 cm dilated, baby is head down and I think engaged.

Estimated weight last Sunday was 6lbs 7oz.

Since I have been having BP issues and already admitted twice my hospital bag is packed and ready to go. At a moments notice they can decide to induce me!!!

We are in the home stretch now girls! Chat Icon Chat Icon Chat Icon Chat Icon Chat Icon Chat Icon Chat Icon

Re: July Mommies Check-In

I'm due July 24 and will be 34 wks on Thursday. I had a check up on the 3rd and the doc told me baby is head down already(which I figured since I feel his hiccups down below). I go back every 2 weeks for a month and starting at 36 weeks start going every week and internals also start at my 36 week appt. Not looking forward to thoseChat Icon I really hope the baby does not come late because my doc is going on vacation on the 27thChat Icon . Other than that, I'm feeling good just achy. I really can't complain though.

Good Luck girlsChat Icon Chat Icon Chat Icon

Re: July Mommies Check-In

I just had a 33 week check up today and I'm measuring 35 weeksChat Icon I go for a sono to measure Chat Icon growth next Monday and they told me they'll be able to tell me more then. I had a feeling I may be farther along than they thought because at my 20 week sono the baby was measuring larger than average, either that or I may be headed for a 9 pounder like my DH was.

I am 36 weeks today. I got for my check up on Thursday. Feeling OK. Very tired. My DD is keeping me on my toes so it is hard to rest. Hope everyone continues to feel well.

Re: July Mommies Check-In

I was 36w on Monday and have another appt tomorrow.

I'm taking a Child Birth Prep class all day on Saturday. I've gotten precertifed by my insurance carrier for the hospital stay and I register at the hospital this week. Bags are packed and ready to go.

As of my last appointment, baby was still comfy where he was, no activity at all. We'll see how tomorrow goes.

I am 37 weeks 90% effaced and a fingertip dilated.

I have had some on and off cramping this past week and this morning I had brown discharge on my liner!! Chat Icon

I had an internal yesterday so it could be from that but I don't know....

I am an early July Mommy-to-be but hoping for a June baby!

Re: July Mommies Check-In

Everyone sounds great!

I will be 34 weeks on Fathers Day. Due 7/28.

On bed rest but working from home. I have placenta previa and started bleeding a few weeks ago so now I am just taking it easy.

Baby is big! Last week it was 5 pounds!!

I go to the doc every week and do non stress tests but all looks good.

They think I will go early but I hope not before 37 weeks.

Good luck to everyone!

Re: July Mommies Check-In

Okay so i had my doctors appointment this morning (37 weeks)...

So i gained a lb (up 25 total), my strep b test came back negative, blood pressure is good, urine is good, etc.

I am 1 cm dilated. According to the tape measure of my belly, i am measuring exactly at 37 weeks... which i am today anyway.

Head is still down.

I go back next friday for a growth sono and a visit.

Oh and he asked if i had any questions and i was like "yeah i actually i do. See those similac bags behind you? Do i get that in the hospital or from here?" He said i get them here and he'd have the nurse put it together for me. So she threw in everything! I got the enfamil diaper bag, a similac travel bag with a regular sized bottle of formula included, an enfamil travel bag with powdered formula, some enfamil ready made 8oz bottles (6 pack), some nipples, diapers, coupons, etc.

So ladies, be sure to ask for your free diaper bags from the OB office. You also get them at the hospital, but i'm told they're not as nice or as much stuff.

Honestly though, i really thought i'd go and he'd tell me that i wasn't dilated or anything because i have felt nothing too. But i was wrong, so you never know! Chat Icon

Re: July Mommies Check-In

I had my 35 week appt this morning, not much happened. BP was good, gained 1 lb from my last appt. 2 weeks ago. So far I gained 21 lbs. My belly though measured 33 (I'll be 35 weeks on Saturday) but she didn't say anything about that, I'm not sure if I should be concerned?!
At my next appt (37 weeks) I have a sono to see if he's still breech or if he flipped. Then I guess at that point we can discuss my options (if he's breech)
I'll also have my first internal & the Group B culture done. Chat Icon
Glad everyone is doing well, we don't have much longer to go!!!!!

I go for my 3d/4d sono tomorrow at Impact Tech! I'm at 34 weeks and feeling pretty good. I go back to doc next week for a strep B test and to go over results of this past Monday's growth sono. Tech predicted Chat Icon to be 8 or more pounds by my due date 7/30.
