Week 33 - Midwife Update

First, here is my Week 33 picture as promised:

Now the update:

I lost 2(ish) lbs in the last two weeks.  That was exciting and meant that it probably really was all the water in my legs and feet.  I've been wearing a pair of Dad's compression socks to bed every night and maybe thats whats making the difference.  My feet don't seem to be swelling quite so bad.

My blood pressure is creeping up although my blood work continues to be normal.  At least thats going right!  My resting blood pressure was 120/70 (laying on my left side).  Two weeks ago my resting blood pressure was 106/64 so that was a major difference.  The highest reading she got was 140/90 (90 something).

I have to go back in tomorrow morning for a quick blood pressure check.  Hopefully that continues to look okay.  I think bedrest is looming on the horizon though.  I'd love to make it to 35 or 36 weeks if possible.  Thats just 2-3 more weeks. 

So thats the update!
