Doc visit

Monday I had a doc appt I didn't get to see my doc he was leaving when i was coming in to deliver a baby :)

I saw the other doc though - my blood pressure was good, her heart beat was good, her head is still down :) My strep B test also came back negative, so I will not need antibiotics when I deliver

They said if I would go into labor now they would not stop it, that I'm far enough along

I go next Tuesday for an ultrasound to see how big she is then at 38 weeks they will do an exam.

The past few days i have been really swollen I have cankles :( She is so low that my pants are having a hard time staying up even my stretchy pants ;)

We have Cole this week for his spring break I think Todd and him will be putting our crib together today (if it gets delivered like they said) Also a funny Cole story:

I was getting ready to take Todd to work yesterday and was telling him what the doc had said about if I go into labor they wouldn't stop it Cole was on the computer (big surprise) and asks where will you go, I said the hospital he asks how will you get there I said your dad will take me, you should of saw his face he says "MY DAD WILL BE AT WORK!" will i need to call 911 ! (because i was taking Todd to work) I had to explain to him it wont' go that fast and your dad will have plenty of time to get home to take me but i wish i would of had a camera his face was priceless!

1 month left

well exactly one more month till my due date!

I''m super excited and super nervous all at the same time.

Am I ready mentally, physically?
Do we have everything we will need?
Do I have things prepared enough at the salon?
Will I be a good mom?
Will I know what to do?
just lots of thoughts going through my head.

I'm also getting so excited to see her little face, hands, toes, Hold her, kiss her put her in all her cute little clothes. I also can't wait to see Todd and Cole hold her!

I can't believe only one more month or so ;)

Early doc appt

I went to the doctor this morning wasn't supposed to go until Thursday.

Yesterday I started having a lot of pressure down low felt like her head was coming out ;) I started getting menstrual like cramps about 3:00 but they didn't really hurt.

As the day went on the cramps got worse I would say a 7 on a scale of 1-10 so about 10:00 I called my doc, he said to take two tylenol drink lots of water and try to get some rest and to come and see him in the morning, but if they got worse to call him

Well..... went to the doc and he said I have a severe bladder infection. He put me on amoxicillin (I have to make sure i don't get hives or anything since I'm allergic to penicillin) but right now thats all he can give me I am allowed to come to Ohio this weekend but then that's it.

My blood pressure was good, babies heartbeat was good he couldn't believe how much she was moving :)

He says she will be a tiny one which is good because I'm built tiny.

I gained 2 more lbs so I'm up to 126 I go and see him in another 2 weeks

He was going to do a pelvic exam but only did the strep B test for today.

So no baby, but last night Todd and I thought we would me making a trip to the hospital.

Glad she is staying in there longer I want her to be in there as long as she needs so she is healthy

34 weeks

34 weeks

I think she has dropped but not for sure, but when I walk it feels like she is going to fall out hehe

And I'm officially waddling and now understand why pregno people take a few mintutes to get out of a chair. (I always they thought they were being a bit dramaful) but now I get it.

I have been feeling good, tired because I don't get alot of sleep, as soon as I get comfortable I feel like I have to go to the bathroom. And to roll over from one side to the other takes me about 5 min with moaning and groaning. Dexter (our cat) is not happy with me! has not been able to sleep with me for a few months now ;)

6 more weeks to go !
