34 week appt.

On Tuesday of this week I had my 34 week appointment and I honestly just forgot to post about it!
I went in expecting to see the doc, but ended up seeing the NP instead. Luckily, I happen to LOVE her, but I was still agitated that I had been told I was seeing the doc and then turns out I wasn't.

I have been having some cramping and elevated BP so I was sure to tell her about it. She checked my cervix and I am still closed, thankfully! She told me to take it easy for the next few days, monitor my BP, and then return to see them on Friday (today). So that's what I've been doing. Since I've been monitoring it, my BP has been back and forth. Some readings have been in the normal range (which is usually typical for me- I have always had really good BP), and some in the higher range (not normal for me).

The swelling is getting worse by the day but I'm surviving. I have been trying to stay off my feet for the most part and keep them propped up, but nothing seems to help. Any suggestions?

Kynlee's heartbeat was 143 bpm on the handheld monitor. I ended up getting an ultrasound to check her position/growth since she always seems to be measuring ahead. Her heartbeat on the ultrasound was also 143 bpm and she is weighing in at 5lbs.,10 ounces!

My appointment is this afternoon so I will update again later!
