37 Week Appointment

This morning I had my 37 week appointment. Dr. Brown checked my progress, and said that I am still about 60 % effaced, more than a cm dilated now (vague), and the baby's head is well engaged in my pelvis. She also said the baby was rather low for 37 weeks - which is a good thing, but explains some of my discomfort. She finally said that the pain I've been having IS in fact sciatic nerve pain (sciatica)... which I already knew. If you're experiencing excruciating shooting pains in your hip/legs... and if you've read/know anything about pregnancy, it's pretty obvious. My Strep B test came back negative, which is also good news.
I go back again on Tuesday.
I can't sleep. I can't walk (well). I'm sick of hurting. I'm a whale.
Maybe I'll be less negative tomorrow.
For now, that's about it.
