Went to the OB today - I'm Group B strep negative - which is good news. No IV needed for me. My weight took a bit of a jump... 7 pounds in 2.5 weeks.... but I'm really starting to swell - so I'm trying to take that bit of information in stride. My BP was good, the baby's heartbeat was great. All good news.
We talked a bit about the delivery. He mentioned that he hasn't done an episiotomy since he joined this practice - they prefer you to tear (which for me is good news). They also let you go 42 weeks before they get pushy about induction (unless of course, you start to show signs that the baby needs to come out). All in all, he just made me even more comfortable with my choice of that OB practice for my natural childbirth.
