We're getting close, ladies!
How are you feeling?:
Week/Fruit: 37 weeks!! full term, baby!
How are you feeling?: Overall still great. I'm totally over work though. Starting to get a bit swollen, which sucks.
Any news/appointments?: I actually switched Obgyn practices last week because I wasn't getting the support from my original practice. LOVE my new doctor. 37wk appt tomorrow.
How are you feeling?: Good. TIIIIIIIRED. But good!
Any news/appointments?: Well, stubborn little miss is making her last stand. She will need to be delivered via c-section because she will not move out of the breech position. So, stubborn little miss is probably going to be a February baby if all goes as planned. It's amazing to me to look at the weather forecast and see my baby's birthday there. AHHH! When did this happen?!
Week/Fruit: 35, honeydew
How are you feeling?: ok, uncomfortable and crabby, but trying to make the best of these last few weeks.
Any news/appointments?: BPPs still 2x/week. Our plan is induction at 39 weeks due to GD and a few other factors, if not before
Week/Fruit: 37- Watermelon
How are you feeling?: Eh, not great. Between the kidney stones and the swelling, I'm pretty much over it!
Any news/appointments?: My 37 week is this Friday. All I know is that the baby has been very low for the past month and that my cervix is thin. I'm not on the edge of my seat though, I have a feeling he's going to test me even in the womb.
GTKY:What's left to do on your to-do list? Oh, everything. I am meeting with the pediatrician tomorrow, I have to clean up the nursery from the shower 2 weeks ago, car seat installation, pack hospital bags, install baby camera, and the list goes on.
Week/Fruit: 37 / Winter Melon (Is that what they make chewing gum from? Lol... just sounds like an Eclipse flavor)How are you feeling?: Soooo tired and big. it is getting so hard to work every day, but I want to save my vacation time and leave for after LO gets here!Any news/appointments?: Had ultrasound today to check position. A little disappointed because I was hoping to see more of LO, but my OB just checked to see where the head was, did a quick once over and that was it. Nothing picture worthy. GBS test came back negative, so that was a big relief - I was really worried that I probably had it.GTKY:What's left to do on your to-do list?
- find a Pediatrician- put together crib (DH doing that today)- pack hospital bag for me and DH (he travels so if LO makes an early appearance he will have to meet me at the hospital from where he is)- make final purchases for registry completion (bottles, diapers, receiving blankets, burp cloths, etc)- buy the Lazyboy recliner- Finish nursery decor and buy dresser (still deciding)- install car seats- wash some of LOs newborn to 3 month clothes- finish sending shower thank you notes- um, start birth preparation classes!
Week: 38 watermellon
Feeling: so great since I got over my cold. Can finally breathe and sleep.
Appointments: BP was high at my checkup today, so they sent me for a 30 min NST, all is well.
To do: blinds for nursery, new recliner for living room, and need to update passport tomorrow.
GTKY:What's left to do on your to-do list? I got a few nursing tanks and a nursing bra today, along with a nursing pillow. Those were the last major items I needed to get before LO gets here. I would also like to get a mirror for the car to see the baby in his car seat. I'm starting to feel ready for this little guy to arrive. However, I have been flipping from this, to extreme anxiety about bringing him into the world, at the drop of a hat lately.
Week/Fruit: 36 - Honeydew
How are you feeling?: Like I'm carrying a honeydew
Any news/appointments?: We had someone come over to install the carseat; we put the stroller together and we have a newborn photographer lined up. 37 week us is next Monday.
How are you feeling?: Contractions are killing my muscles and I'm exhausted trying to keep up with my 2 yr old.
Any news/appointments?: Final appt and NST on Thurs. RCS a week from today
