Cravings: Various baked goods I have (so far) not managed to get my hands on.
Symptoms: Sleepy, achy, nothing new.
Mom is feeling: SO EXCITED for this little guy to get here. We still have a lot to get done (like ship all of the baby shower gifts from California, eek!) but we have the important stuff squared away.
Dad is feeling: Thankful that they checked and Baby J is still a boy (silly man.)
Weight Gain: I lost one pound since my last appointment, which I chalk up to not working anymore and therefore cooking all of my meals at home. I'm still in a healthy range and baby has gained around a pound since that last appointment, so the midwives are perfectly happy with ti.
Doctory stuff: Can I just say that I have the most beautiful BP ever? It was 107/67 yesterday and I was so, so happy to see that. My mother had Pre-e with all of her pregnancies so I've been worried it might crop up eventually, but nothing yet. Also, no GD! No, really this time! Everything was normal so they aren't going to make me take the 3 hr test again. I've been advised to eat only whole grain in the mornings, just to be safe, which I do anyway so that's no problem. My belly is measuring in at 34 weeks and everything looked just dandy. At the OB appointment today, they said they would guess Baby J's birth weight will be between 7 pounds 12oz and 8ish pound. They also rechecked his heart and said it was beautiful, no congenital defects for us, no matter how cursed my gene pool is. Also, he has hair! So cute.
Things we’ve done to prepare: I registered D and myself for the childbirth and breastfeeding class at the hospital in two weeks and I've started practicing my hypnobirthing again (finally). I also looked up some encouragement for natural birth to hopefully help me push through when the time comes (no pun intended).
