    I had my 38 week mw appointment today, although I'm 39 weeks on Monday.

    My BP is slightly raised so she wants me to go to day care at the hospital on Monday so that they can monitor it for an hour. My urine was fine and she took bloods again just to be safe.

    She said if my BP was really bad she'd send me straight to triage, but it's apparently it's not bad enough to and I've not had any headaches or anything, so just to take it easy.

    He's not engaged :wall: I'm so disappointed. She said it doesn't necessarily mean anything, but still...booo! I so wanted him to be.

    I'm to see her again next week, but there are no appointments :roll: so I'm to call Monday and if there are no cancellations, call triage and arrange a mw appointment there.

    It's funny, it's now at the stage where it's like, "if you haven't gone into labour, I'll see you in a week" :shock: although she said that 2 weeks ago lol.

    Have the feeling I may be waiting a while. Hope not, but we'll see.

    Measuring 40 weeks so not 3 weeks ahead this time :dance:

    She looked pretty horrified at my inflammed :roll: stretchmarks. I picked up the cream from the chemist the doc prescribed and it says not to use when pregnant or on inflammed skin!! So maybe give that a miss and stick with the e45. FFS.

    Just read your post. I know I text but just to say that's shocking about the cream you got given for your itchy stretchmarks not to be used when pregnant!! Wtf is the point in that?

    It must be strange for you that any day now could be the day you give birth :lol: :dance:

    Thanks Kerry. Yeah he's head down thank god. She didn't seem that concerned that he wasn't engaged but I just so wanted him to be as thought it would be a good sign that he's ready. xx
