Appointment yesterday-everything is scheduled!

So I had my 37.5 week appointment yesterday. Nothing out of the ordinary. BP was fine (128/74), nothing came back positive on my cultures from last week (I wasn't concerned at all anyhow), and I had actually gained one lb. (but my appointment was almost at lunch time, so it was probably from the water and fluids I had drank during the day). No swelling, nothing like that. Baby sounded awesome and is wiggling around alot still.

My section is scheduled for 11/21 at 7:30 a.m. I just got off the phone with the practice manager who told me I had to be at the hospital at 6 a.m. that day! Its half an hour away. :eek: AND we have to drop Jack off at his Aunt's house before we go there...so that means leaving our house at 5:15 a.m., dropping him off by 5:20 and getting on the road immediately. Ugh.

I guess I should get my stuff packed away in the hospital bag now, eh?

and Congrats to all the new mommies and daddies and babies!!!!

So exciting!!! We had an early time too and it worked out great. Even though it was hard to get there that early and have everything arranged with DS I loved that we did not need to wait long to have her. Wow...10 more days!

WooHoo!! It must be nice to know exactly how many more days you have left! You can get ready and maybe squeeze in some pampering for yourself, eh?

I got a mani/pedi last weekend, and tomorrow my sister in law is giving me a MUCH needed hair cut. I actually found my inspiration cut in of all places...the most recent Frederick's of Hollywood catalog!!! I showed DH the picture, and was like "what do you think of that hair?" he totally scoped out the gals body and said he liked it...I don't think he looked at her haircut...it could have been a buzz cut and he would have said the same thing...

Till 11/21 I just want to lay around my house, not go anywhere, and wear sweat pants. Its such an effort to put on clothes that are suitable for being seen in public...but I've got my final prenatal appointment on Tuesday, and then bloodwork on Friday...and I would like to get jack out on a couple of playdates/storytimes this week...
