I have my 37 week appointment Wednesday afternoon. I'll get to enjoy another lovely cervix check *major sarcasm* but I've been doing all the things so hopefully we've made at least some progress.
@kswiger06 I got my gbs test 2 weeks ago and it was done so fast it really wasn't bad at all. And it was just a vaginal swab, no rectum swabbing. I would definitely push about getting the pump too. I don't understand why insurance companies do things so differently, I got my pump at like 4 months.
Love my LEO!!

Got a fairly full schedule of appointments this week. Tomorrow I meet with the GD provider for a check in. Then I have my (now) weekly regular appointment on Thursday (which will include the strep b test and a stress test), then we have an u/s on Saturday to check on size due to GD.
Just got back from an unscheduled NST due to the decreased movement I mentioned in Sunday's symptoms thread and here is what they came back with:
Baby looked good on the monitor which was nice to hear. But they are glad I came in because I am having regular contractions, which we saw on there too. She asked if I felt them and I said yes but they aren't really painful. So they gave me a cervix check and said baby has already dropped and his head is wicked low (they were like shocked to find how low it is). Not dilated they said but because of the LEEP I had, that could change. They said to just stay hydrated, keep my feet up, call with any changes to contractions etc. And that they could continue for the rest of the time.. yayyy haha. They were coming pretty close together apparently, but I just figured they were BH... oops
@Gretchypoo I stand corrected, but that still doesn't explain why the doctor wouldn't write the prescription.
@kswiger06 does your insurance have to have the prescription in hand before they will send breast pump out? Mine said I needed a prescription, which I finally called my doctor for last week, but the company had already sent my pump out that morning. They just had towait until 30 days from due date.
