I had my 27 week appointment and did my glucos test. I may have a c-section date set on June 20th or 23rd. I prefer the 20th because it is a Friday but it isn't that big of a deal and the dr was kidding around and giving me a hard time. haha He asked what made me think I would even make it that far which I didn't with ds but we will see. My bp was a little high but I really don't think I am going to have a problem with pih this time. Now I move to appointments every 2 weeks. I can't beleive I'm at that point already!
The other thing I have done was we had our 3d sonogram. It was great to see the baby and the room was set up nicely with a big screen tv to watch from. Tristan liked looking but he kept asking when they were going to open my belly to see the baby. haha At first the baby wouldn't cooperate to get a good picture of it's face because he kept getting his hand in the way. He weighs 2 lbs 15 ounces right now and his heart rate was 144 bpm. The best part was watching him yawn really big and you could even see his little tongue stick out!
Whew, I am done transferring the journal over to the new boards. I bet there was an easier way than I did it but oh well. I am 29 weeks and Easter is this weekend. I'm looking forward to it and hope it doesn't rain. Tristan has gone pee pee on the potty 3 times today which is great. I am doing a no stress potty training aproach and if it works it works and if not thats ok to.
I feel huge and am having a hard time getting around easily. I thought I was going to get stuck on the floor yesterday when I was changing Tristans diaper! haha
I am counting down the days until my c-section. I have 6 weeks and 4 days. I can't wait! I don't really have anything set up but I have almost everything I need. Since I do daycare and babies room is the playroom right now I am waiting until the week before to set the crib up and all that. The baby will actually be downstairs with us for a while anyway. There are a few things I still need but nothing major.
I wish I could say I was one of those women that love being pregnant but I am just not a good pregnant person. I love the kids just not the process. I am so big and it is so hard to get around. I hurt all the time and even walking through walmart makes me start cramping so bad. I can not wait to be able to start dieting again.
Other than the normal complaignts nothing unusual is going on. My b/p is normal and all of my tests are good. The baby seems to be right on target for size and moves alot so I don't have to worry.
I don't think time is moving! haha When I came to post here I thought I hadn't been here in weeks but I posted just last week. I had another dr's appointment and it was very routine so nothing interesting to post. I have been having daily headaches that I wish would go away but I had them at the end with ds too. It's kind of strange knowing I am so close but it feeling like a lifetime away still. I know I should try to enjoy the last few weeks of just having ds but I am so miserable that I just want to have this baby and get back to my normal self. I hate being so big and tired that I can't function normally. I am still doing daycare and plan to up until the week before my c-section but it is so hard. I am so tired that just the basic care of the kids is a challenge and I feel guilty that we haven't been doing any extra stuff.
We still don't have anything set up for the baby but I did start packing my bag just in case! haha I was going to continue to do daycare until the end of my 37 th week but I think I am going to cut it short a week and stop at the end of next week. That gives me two weeks alone with Tristan and to get ready befor emy c-section. I have a feeling I won't make it that far but it's probably just wishful thinking. haha I do feel guilty taking the two weeks off but I just feel like I am overdoing it and I am sore, tired, and miserable every night.
I really need to take another belly picture soon. I am so much bigger than I was with Tristan. Braden just laughes and laughes watching me try to get up off the couch. hehe I have now officially gained more weight than I did with Tristan but there isn't a whole lot I can do about it now. Of course I worry about getting it back off but I am the type that will not stop until I am back to my size 6. At least I don't weigh as much as dh yet!
I am really getting excited about meeting this little one. I can't wait to see what he is like and how he will look. Braden and I joke around alot that he is going to be an angel baby because Tristan was so difficult for long long this one couldn't be worse.
I am also getting a little nervous about my c-section. I dreamed that I couldn't move but I could feel the pain. It comes from the fact that I could feel the dr cutting through the layers with ds because of the pressure but no pain. I guess I worry it will be like at the dentist where everything is fine until he finds that one spot that wasn't numbed right. I know that isn't going to happen but I do worry. Most of all I worry about how Tristan will react to the new baby.
24 days and counting!
I can't beleive how close I am now. When I went to the dr yesterday they had to do the strep test and he went ahead and checked to see if I had started to do anything. Of course I hadn't but I didn't really expect to considering the fact that I don't progress is one of the reasons I am having a c-section. The dr may be moving my c-section day up a couple days and I can't wait!! I won't know until next week so it is kind of nice to get a little surprise. I am so ready to have this baby and I know he will be bigger than tristan was. I only have 1 day left of doing daycare and I am really looking forward to some alone time with Tristan. He is getting excited too and now says when the baby comes "mommy get a big big owie" too cute. We took some pics of me to remember me being this big and I think they turned out really nice.
Tomorrow is the big day. I am very excited/scared at the same time. We have to be at the hospital at 5:30 am and it is set to happen at 7:15. We'll see if that is the actual time or not. I'm still worried about the recovery with a toddler but I am just going to keep a positive attitude!
