37 week appointment
Today the doctor said I am only dilated to a 1 or 1 1/2. And I am still not effaced at all. I guess I won't be going into labor early. Dang it! I am so swollen though and my left leg is bigger than my right, so he said my uterus position (or something like that) is on the opposite side than in most pregnancies. I don't think that really mattered, but I am not sure. Also I guess I tested positive for the Strep B. He said that everyone has Strep B bacteria in them at times in their life and my levels are just high right now. It doesn't hurt me at all, but the baby can get sick when he is delivered. So they will just put an antibiotic in my IV when I am in labor. My doctor says I am a worrier so he doesn't like to tell me any kind of news that I might take as bad news. I think he was talking about the baby being breech. He said the baby would probably turn which he was right. But my boss's daughter (who is 1 1/2 weeks ahead of me) was told by her doctor that 95% of the time they just take them c-section. So of course I was worried. That is just the nature of pregnant women.
