Hello cankles! This week I have started getting swollen ankles by the days end. It isn’t too bad yet but I do notice it. My back is also bothering me a little bit more as it is really starting to curve back. I have been drinking lots of water to try and keep hydrated and ward off those BH. They are still pretty regular but not painful. I had an appointment today and I was dilated to 3-4. So a little more than last week. My doctor also said that I had apparently lost all of my mucus plug over the weekend and he can feel baby’s head. I have been spotting since my appointment this afternoon but its not really anything. Not even a teaspoon, I would guess. I get breathless more easily also. I am still holding on to hope that we can make it until August. I am ready to get there already but I want him to be ready for his arrival too. Its a really annoying place in pregnancy. I feel guilty for wanting baby to hurry up, and at the same time, I want him to be born healthy, even if that means a couple more weeks.
