Trucking on...

So I'm 33 weeks and 2 days and had my eighth prenatal appointment today. Nothing too fancy to report on. I gained another 2 lbs which is right on track so I'm still not complaining. :) I'm measuring 33 cm in fundal height, blood pressure looks good, and baby's heartbeat is strong and steady. That's about it!
Until next time!!!

Mike and I bought a house! It's crazy really. We thought it might be a smart thing to do about a month ago so we started looking. One of the houses we first looked at was perfect! We put a bid on it and settled on Monday, May 12, 2008. The sellers have been amazing, helping us fix things and what not. This process has made me realize how blessed I am and I'm not taking it for granted! Anyway, the house is in Hampstead. It's a townhome with three floors, a finished basement, three bedrooms, 1 1/2 bath, deck, fireplace, etc. We plan on moving on May 24th so once we start getting in there I will take some pictures. I will admit, I'm a little overwhelmed. We have a lot of packing and stuff to do and I know I'm going to be hitting that nesting stage soon and want to get this new house in top notch order before the baby gets here. I ordered the furniture (thanks Ms. Bobbie) and can't wait for that to come in! I want everything to be perfect for Weston. Knowing that, I realize I have a lot to do in the next 8 weeks or so! Pray that I don't wear myself out! I want to keep him and myself healthy!

head down

Hello! I had my seventh prenatal appointment (and I'm beginning to lose track!) yesterday at 31 weeks and 1 day! Besides waiting for my doctor to make 2 deliveries, nothing too exciting to note. I gained another three pounds making a total of 23 pounds all together which the doctor says is great. Blood pressure was good. Weston is still head down and very low according to Dr. Phillips. She says that will make for a nice delivery. Music to my ears! She also felt around and pushed around and concluded that he's not that big right now. Again, music to my ears! Although, sometimes I feel like I am carrying around a football helmit in my stomach! Anyway, that's about all. I start going every 2 weeks now so my next appointment is May 27th. I'm thinking my updates will begin to get shorter!
Later!! :)

So I got the results of my glucose screening and....everything looks good! No gestational diabetes! Another triumph for the pregnancy experience!!! :) The only thing they had to say negative was that my blood count is a little lower than they would like so I have to go get an iron supplement and start taking that along with my prenatal vitamins. This is no surprise to me as I had blood count problems before pregnancy, so really I should have known this would come up. No biggy though...I will stop and get some iron supplements tonight and this problem will be no more! Yay for a healthy and amazing baby Weston! :)
BTW...Mike and I start Birthing Class on 5/5/08. Should be fun!! :)
