36 Weeks: Update

I'm actually a little over 36 weeks now, and things are getting a little more difficult. The swelling has gotten progressively worse in both my hands and feet. The carpal tunnel is now hurting where before it was a dull ache. I'm on bed rest, or modified BR, since my BP is going up, however I've been tested for Pre-E and I don't have it! Thank goodness, but it can strike at anytime without notice. Over the weekend I thought baby girl had dropped, but she has not. I swear I feel like an arm is going to come out of my vag! The pressure is sooo intense. I've had my weekly Doctor's appointment, and it went okay. The doc said I'm closed up and baby's still high. Boo. But she examined me and said she's not concerned with me having a VBAC. However, since I have had a VBAC they do not induce, and she would let me go, I suppose, until 42 weeks before I have to have a c-section. I'll have another growth U/S at 38 weeks to see where she's at. I've still been going to my twice weekly NSTs and, so far, we've found that baby girl tests better after I eat. Other than that, I have my bag packed, and now I'm waiting. I really hope I go within the next few weeks. I don't know if I can handle 4 more weeks of this or 5 weeks! I'm ready to meet my little girl!

On another note, that's totally off topic, I saw Eclipse at midnight! My sister and I tagged along with my niece, her friend, and my nephew. Luckily, they stood in line for us the morning of. I would not, could not do it. I got in line around 9p and they let us into the theatre at 10:30. It was a decent movie and I felt it did the book justice, as much as it could. I had read the book the week before so it was fresh in my head. I can't wait for Breaking Dawn. I really hope they do a good job with them both. But I guess we'll see in a little over a year.
