35 Weeks, 3 days

Hello faithful blog readers... if there are any!
Last night we got back from a long weekend of traveling. We got to see both families on our tour of the southeast. We probably won't be seeing our parents again until Chappell makes her big debut in about 4 weeks. I have a doctor's appointment this Friday and will continue to go weekly from this point on. Never in my life have I looked forward to any sort of pelvic exam... in fact, they used to scare me to death! But, I'm really excited/curious to see if I've made any progress down there. Weird - I know. I'm not expecting to be dilated or anything at this first appointment, being only about 36 weeks... but I would certainly welcome any sign of an early arrival!

As far as being preggo's concerned, I've become extremely uncomfortable. On Saturday, the pain in my lower back got much worse and now I can barely walk. Any weight or pressure on my left side causes a shooting pain in my back and down my left leg. It's the worst. Thank GOD I am not working right now... it would be impossible. There's not much you can do to help sciatic nerve pain... it's due to the baby's position and pressure on my lower back. The only real cure is delivery. The doctor said I could do physical therapy... I think I'm going to try getting a massage and just wait it out.

Thanks for posting, though that was alot of graphic information. Pelvic exams...sciatic nerve pain. YIKES! You're coming to the end...beginning? Anyway, I cannot wait for Chappell to arrive!
