33 Weeks & 8 Full Months!

Just about 4-5w left to go give or take! I cannot believe how fast everything has gone. I feel big as a house too! At my 32w appt, Oliver was vertex! He's been ever since. :) He dropped somewhere between 31w and 32w. It's become quite a challenge walking around. I'm officially in the "I'm so done with being pregnant!" stage. I am still only up 9lbs from pre-pregnancy weight and my BP is perfect. My next appointment is April 6th.

Don't forget to vote on the stats poll off to the right because I am closing it in just 2w. I can't wait to see who wins!

31 Weeks

So we have about 6-7w left give or take! (praying I make it to 38w) I'm starting to get anxious and a bit nervous. We're going to have a newborn around here! :-o Kinda crazy.

I'm not feeling too bad these days. My belly is beginning to feel a bit overstretched. I'm having the normal pelvic pressure, braxton hicks and sore hips. This is where being pregnant is fun! :-P Not too much longer! My next dr appointment is on Wednesday. I am curious to see what position Oliver is in. I am going to guess vertex posterior (head down, facing the front). I'll share the update when I do my 32w post. :-)

30 Weeks!!

I decided to skip posting about 29w since there wasn't a whole lot to post about. I did however have my 28w appointment at 28.5w. At the time, he was breech AGAIN! I think he flipped again sometime over the last 3-4 days. Let's hope he stays in the right position. I also had ketones, sugars and protein in my urine. I believe and so does the dr, that I was not getting enough water at all. Nothing else makes sense..... my glucose levels have been great and my b/p has been on the low end of normal. I have been drinking a ton since then, so we'll see how I do at my next appointment on the 18th. My b/p has been on the lower side (115/63 last I checked it) so there's no concern for pre-eclamsia. I am at 7-8lbs up from my pre-pg weight! Not bad huh?! Kind of hard to gain weight on this diet!

My belly seems to have grown it's own zip code. I love it though! I haven't come to the point where I'm tired of being preggo yet, though I know it's coming. I think I am sad that it's coming to an end and yet thrilled to finally meet Oliver. :-) We pretty much have everything ready except maybe a few items. It's exciting to see everything coming together.
