Baby Update

Yesterday we went in for a baby check-up. I'm 34 weeks now, so this was my first "every two weeks" appointment. I have another in two weeks and after that we'll start to go every week.

I had a Group Strep B swab to find out if I am a carrier of Strep B. If I am, they will give me drugs while in labor so that it doesn't pass to the baby. Hopefully it will come out negative. My uterus is once again measuring two weeks larger than normal! Eeek!

Our Practitioner is estimating that baby is weighing in at a hefty 4 1/2 to 5 pounds. I can't believe how big he/she is all ready! Also, I managed to lose three pounds since my last appointment two weeks ago, which is pretty darn impressive considering it was over the Christmas holiday! I've gained a total of 11 pounds through this whole pregnancy. I'm pretty proud of myself for that. Hopefully I'll be able to lose it easily after baby is born.

The birth plan is done (3 pages long... I may have gone a little overboard!) and so is my packing list... we just need to actually pack our suitcase(s). The nursery is starting to come together well, toys are put together and everything electronic has its batteries in place!

Our Texas baby shower will be next weekend and after that, the baby could be here anytime! We can't wait! :)

Happy New Year's Eve Eve!
