33 weeks and 1 day! We start our prepared childbirth classes tonight, we had the baby shower on Saturday. I have appointments scheduled to check car seat installation and meet a potential pediatrician for Noah...I can't believe we've gotten this far! I'm both 100% ready for him and 100% not ready to take on this responsibility. How can I feel both ways? Deep breath!
So the baby shower was fabulous! Thanks to all who had a role in it. We got just about everything we needed and have started buying what's left a little at a time. I think most of it is stuff we could probably manage without for at least a few days after he's born and I could send Ryan to the store if needed. We have the car seats installed in the cars, crib and cradle set up with at least sheets on them. Diapers coming out our ears, bottles and formula just in case. A few outfits ;-)! Blankets galore and even a few toys for him to stare at...We should be fine.
I had my 32 week appointment on Tuesday. Noah's heart rate was 146 and he's doing great. Moving around like crazy all the time now. I don't even have to sit down and focus to count my 10 kicks. He gets them in as soon as I even think about doing it. I can't wait to meet him! I'm just so excited to see his cute little face and be able to hug and kiss him all the time. I was telling Ryan the other day, the one thing he can do that I can't and it makes me slightly jealous is kiss him. Maybe not technically so to speak but I guarantee I can't get my head down close enough to my belly to give it a kiss. A small price to pay I suppose for all the other wonderful things I get to experience.
The Dr was concerned that I'm measuring a little big and with my glucose level being so close to the cut off, he ordered an ultrasound in 4 weeks to check his size. He doesn't want me delivering a 10 or 11 pound baby thankfully and neither do I. So on February 9th we'll do an ultrasound and if he's measuring 7 or 8 at that time, we'll talk about early induction. If he's still little, 5-6, they'll let me go to term, unless he comes early on his own of course.
My next appointment is January 26 and hopefully by then we should know for sure if the stupid insurance will cover the 20 week US once and for all. I'm so tired of dealing with all of this! I called them after the other US was ordered to make sure ahead of time it would be covered and they said yes so here's hoping. I also found out they will cover the circumcision which is so nice to hear. Now for the fun pictures! I'll post more later, I've got to get ready for work. I'm working early so I can be off in time for the class!
