32 week Dr apointment

Just quick update after my Dr appointment last Thursday.

This past week and a half I've been getting sharp, pinchy pains that feel like they are coming from my cervix, so I talked to the Dr about them and she said we do not need to worry about any pain I feel there unless it is acompanied by bleeding so they didn't check my cervix. It's weird after knowing what it was up to every week to now have gone over 2 weeks without a check and have no clue what's going on in there!

The past few weeks I've also been having trouble emptying my bladder because Griffin is sitting right on top of things, so I have to lean this way and that way and it's such a slow process, and also very irritating but the Dr said as long as I'm still going and don't feel pain with urination they aren't going to worry about it.

I'm not going to have another appointment for 2 weeks again at which time they will give me a growth scan just to make sure Griffin is still on track and that everything looks good, so I am excited about that because I wasn't expecting any more ultrasounds.

She also told me that after my next appointment I can transfer back to my local Dr cause a baby born at 34 weeks does not need a level 3 NICU anymore and should do just fine. So at that point if I'm still pregnant I can also deliver at the local hospital instead of the big one an hour away if I want too, it's a lot to think about! They said we can stay with them through to the end as well, whatever makes us comfortable, so Jer and I are still thinking about it, but haven't made any decisions yet.

The great news is that I am now officially allowed to start slowly adding some activity back into my life! I was soooo excited because bedrest has been driving me nutty! So Thursday evening, we went out to dinner and a movie, and it was so much fun! Another positive that came out of it is that I slept so good Thursday night because I was so tired and worn out. It was great, I'm so glad to be able to start building up some strength again before the labor!
