The Scale

I wake up on Dr. appointment days and think, 'what should I wear today? What will make me weigh the least amount on the dr. scale?'
Am I the only one who does this? I hate it. Last week marked a 40 lb. weight gain. What scares me so badly is that I've taken some food liberties, but not very many. It's not like I can point to eating tons of bad food, it's just been creeping up over the last 6 months or so. I didn't gain much weight at first, but now I feel like it just goes up and up!
I'm almost excited for next week because I can schedule a morning appointment and I won't have breakfast and lunch in my stomach 'weighting' me down. (pun).

But here I go, today is 38 weeks, 3 days. Will I be checked for dilation? I don't know. But I'm anxious to get things moving, although I'm still at work until Friday.

OH, and one more new symptom (not to complain, but to document).
I snore now!
Did this happen to anyone else? It's been about the last week and it's terrible! I never used to snore and I would make fun of my husband for snoring so much. But now I don't have a leg to stand on.
Are there any remedies? If you started snoring while pregnant, did it go away?

I snored while I was pregnant...uh...worse than when I'm not pregnant, that is.

My doctor said it was because my face and nose were swollen. I also had nose bleeds at the end and my doctor said that was due to capillaries in my nose bursting because of my swollen nose. Fun times!

I totally used to wear my lightest possible clothing to my weigh-ins; even to the point of wearing my crocs in November because they were the lightest shoes I had! I also watched everything I ate and ran until 30 weeks, biked until 34 weeks, and swam until a week before giving birth. Weight gain just happens at this point in the pregnancy. For me a lot of it was water weight as my blood pressure would creep up but it still didn't make me happy stepping on the scale knowing I was the same weight as my husband!
