I went for my 36 week doctor appointment today. They did the GBS test and first progress check. I was 50% and 1cm. I think that is pretty standard for not much progress really. Katy's heart rate was 160 BPM and she was measuring right on. I actually lost a little over a pound from the last appointment, but I still think that I weigh less in the morning then I do in the afternoon. My total weight gain so far is about 34lbs. My BP was a little on the high side for me at 128/82. The midwife didn't seem concern though because I had no other symptoms. She also confirmed that Katy is positioned head down in the right position, which I pretty much already knew because she is constantly kicking me in the ribs.
She went over all the reasons to head in to L&D. It seems surreal that I am down to the last month. Austin told me in the bath tonight that in four weeks Katy will come out of my belly. He was right that she was a girl, so maybe her birthday will be more like August 15.
