34 weeks & counting...

The Countdown is on....
27 days to go!
(I get to cheat 2 weeks early)

~Yesterday I had another doctor's appointment marking me at 34 weeks. I gained another 8 pounds just this month!... & I know that I'm only getting bigger from here. Everything looks good but now is the time I have to be watched closely for 2 reasons; Signs of Preeclampsia & then of course Labor. Both things are pretty dangerous for me at this stage of the game. 

~Last week I really OVER-DID it and  Thursday & Friday had lots of scary contractions. I figured they would go away eventually so I didn't stress. I went to the Temple on Thursday & didn't have ANY contractions the whole hour or so I was there. Of course right when we walked out, they started up again. I finally called the Dr.'s office Friday so I could get checked, but it was too late because all doctors were in surgery the rest of the day. So I was told on the phone to go to labor & delivery...uh.. Not doing that. So I just made myself lay down, put my feet up & made Tim help out(hard for me to do) 

All is fine now. I'm just trying to get rest whenever I can & learn how to walk with this little BOY so

                                                            O
      Yes...I waddle.                                 W!

You're almost there! I know those last weeks seem to dddrrraaaggg by, but it really isn't long. Nice about going early, isn't it? Contractions don't seem so scary when it's your fourth... Even though you don't feel like it, you look adorable! Happy waddling! We'll be praying for you and your fam through these last weeks.

Yea! So close! I'm glad you finally figured out to lay down and let Tim help---you should probably do that for the next few weeks. Men love to be needed so Tim should eat it up. :) Have you guys figured a name out for that little boy yet?
I was at the Temple on Thursday too...wish I would have bumped into you.

Hey girly, you are so adorable, I am praying for you that you do not get preeclampsia this time, TAKE IT SOOOOOO EASY. You look so cute!!!!! I do notice some swelling around your eyes though, so again, TAKE IT EASY, I am a preeclamptic mama when I am preg too, so I know how hard it is to actually lay down and let your husband take over, but just think a few weeks and your new little addition will be here! Love ya!

Wow! 3 weeks! I, too, am 3 weeks from my estimated due date (who knows, maybe sooner than expected). Congratulations! Just FYI, I came across your blog through Feedjit a few days ago. I'm currently on bedrest per dr's orders for the weeks to come. Ugh...so depressing and boring. Once again, congrats!!

oh my gosh! You look SO GOOD!! You'll have that baby and then go right back to your skinny mini self. Lucky! The last 3 weeks go so slooooooow. Hang in there!

kristal said...

Oh my gosh you're adorable! Seriously our bellies are the same size, and I even waddle for the first few steps after I first stand up. I popped big time a couple of weeks ago. UG!
But yea, let Tim help and stop having contractions for a few weeks. Can't wait to see your next kid. Does he have a name yet?
