36 weeks and counting down

Its already 36+weeks, unbelievable. This pregnancy has been a long ride between the fertility treatments, high blood pressure and subsequent bed rest, oh and chasing a toddler around.  I am not necessarily ready for a newborn but ready to finish being pregnant.  Today, I was at my weekly OB appointment.  I was monitored with the non-stress test, no contractions, I am not dilated. 

My OB, Dr. Medchill and I scheduled my C-section.  I had a choice between August 2 and July 23.  My feet are swollen so I am waddling and my BP was a bit high.  I don't think I will make it until August.  I chose July 23rd which is technically 38 weeks.  Dr. Medchill advised that I will have to have amnio at same time as C-section to ensure the baby's lungs are developed.  There is minimal risk with the amnio if anything it would trigger labor.
 
That is all I have to report at this time.  I hope to be writing more in the next few days before Baby Boy Piccione is here.
