Baby Update - 37 weeks

So I had my 37 week appt today and everything looked GREAT! Which is good, buttttttttttttttt strange to me. All along there have been complications and worries, etc - and now all of a sudden THINGS ARE GREAT! WTH??!?! I am super happy about that - but just out of sorts about it. I guess I am waiting for something to go wrong.

My blood pressure was 102/67 (has been pretty good all along)
Urine looked good (who would have guessed I had good lookin' urine!)
My amniotic fluid levels were 15.2 cm (up from 14 cm last week)
Baby was super active at the office (had decreased activity at home)
They didn't check the kidney size (it's been enlarged since 18 weeks) but I am sure it is still enlarged.

Basically - it is a waiting game (as in most pregnancies!) I did talk to the OB about inducing earlier than 39 weeks, like at 38 1/2 weeks and he said that would be fine. So, my next appt is May 13th and if I am still not in labor (which I won't be) they will schedule my induction date for me.

Oh yeah, still 1 cm dialated - bull crap!

I was told yesterday my urine looked great too! Who knew? maybe we should start bottling and selling? ;)

I'm so jealous you're almost there! October seems like FOREVER!
