Ok, so this is really a self indulgent whinge. I'm 39 weeks, been a pretty easy pregnancy so far, all things considered.
Baby is going to be a heifer (estimating 4.2kgs by the due date) and now things are starting to get messy. I've been at the hospital twice this week, once with a migraine, once with a high blood pressure reading (that may or may not have been caused by a faulty machine - either way, BP was fine at the hospital). Feet are swollen to the point where I can barely wear thongs anymore.
Slightly high BP today with small amount of protein in urine sample (BP taken immediately after walking up a steep hill in the sun). Long story short, now I've been ordered to stay at home and 'watch' for signs of pre-eclampsia (noting that I'm a migraine sufferer, it's hot and humid, and the symptoms are almost identical). I'm really not good at sitting around all day.
I'm so sick of being pregnant! If my health is starting to deteriorate, and the baby is full term, I really don't see why they can't just induce me now and be done with it. The baby is probably bigger than average birth size now anyway, so what's the point? I'm scared of pre-eclampsia, at this stage, nothing is worth that!
