35 1/2 Weeks

It's time for another belly update! I had a doctor's appointment today, things are going well. Baby is crazy active, I seriously think I have bruises on my insides, but I'm glad she's strong and healthy. Today was the fun strep B test, and the doctor checked me, 1 cm! Woohoo, hey its something. Of course I'm not as dilated as I was with the other kids at this point, but I'm doing something. If I've dilated more at my next appointment he will probably move up my c-section. I'm trying not to get my hopes up though. 25 days til the current scheduled date, I can do it!! The last 3 days I've suddenly had a lot of swelling and all that fun stuff, which I had avoided thus far, but the doctor doesn't seem concerned, my blood pressure is still perfect. Here are the latest belly shots, not very attractive, and I don't think they do the ginormous belly justice, I swear she moves to she doesn't poke out as much when I take pictures of her. But trust me, the belly is BIG.



I got the bassinet, baby tub and carseat all washed up and ready this week, all that is left to do is pack my bag for the hospital and I'm trying really hard not to jump the gun on that one, but I have made a list. :) My mom has her plane tickets to come for 10 days when the baby is born, so I think we are ready! Now I just have to sit and be patient. Patience has never been my strong point...

THe end is always so hard! Every day lasts forever it seems like. But only 25 more days (at the most), phwew! It'll be here... well, you know. :-) You look cute! I love the preggo belly shots. Good luck with everything!

I had my 36 week apt. today, tested positive for strep b, awesome. I'm not really sure what that means, other than I have to take antibiotics. I'm also 1 cm. I was going to say that your tummy looks smaller in those pictures than your lost one! Funny.
