34 Weeks


The last two weeks have brought all sorts of new events. Last week I started getting Braxton Hicks contractions which were very irregular. That changed as of yesterday. If you haven't already heard I had non stop BH starting at noon yesterday. I called my Doctor around 4pm and she just told me to lay down and drink a lot of water and if I have 6 painful contractions in a hour to come in. I only had maybe 2-3 every couple hours. The BH lasted through the night and into this morning. But I have been feeling much better the last couple hours, just taking it easy so they don't come back full force again!

Our 34 week ultrasound was on Valentine's Day, it was one of the greatest Valentine's Days I have ever had! We brought the gang to this one, since it was most likely our last. Josh, his mom, me, and my G-ma went and saw our Baby Girl. I couldn't believe how big she was! 4 pounds 12 ounces! She moved all around for us, sucked her thumb, gave us some cute pictures, and turns out she has a lot of hair! I didn't know you could tell that in an ultrasound, but it gives me something to look forward to seeing.

At our appointment we also got all our paper work to register for labor and delivery at Deaconess. We went there yesterday and are all set to deliver there. I just can't believe how soon it is coming. Less than 6 weeks now.
