My 37 week doctor appointment went well. Admittedly, I was a little shocked by how much weight I gained in a week, but I'm guessing (and hoping) that at least some of it is water retention since I pretty much resemble the Stay-Puffed Marshmallow Man these days. Otherwise the appointment went well and everything is normal. I asked for an internal, since I'm always one to opt for more information rather than less. Not surprisingly I'm still closed tight, although Dr. C threw me a bone and said my cervix seemed softer than last week. But at this stage I'm fine with that. If I'm still not dilating two or three weeks from now, I might start getting a bit cranky.
My boss is encouraging me to work from home as much as possible, and so I'm definitely taking her up on that tomorrow and perhaps late next week as well. I've made a lot of progress this week in wrapping my projects up, so I'm hopeful that I'll be able to work just part-time during the final week before my due date. It would be nice to get the house cleaned up and finish my to do list before Jillian arrives...or I could just put my feet up and enjoy my last few moments of freedom!
