I had my 34 week appointment this week...I can't believe it! Everything is still looking good, baby is head down now I've been feeling kind of crampy lately. A few days ago I think I was def having some mild contractions and my doctor said that I probably was. Yikes! I did bring up the topic of induction (after 39 weeks, I'm just really stressing about th person who's coming to watch Rachel being a couple of hours away and would love to have a set day to have her be here...yes I'm a control freak) and he said after 39 weeks it's definitely an option if I haven't gone into labor by myself by then. But he then told me that he's on vacation the week after labor day, which would be th 39-40 week window!! Nooooooo!! I love my ob and really really want him to be the one to deliver my baby. So maybe this is a sign I need to just let nature take it's course and hopefully go into labor while he is here. Next appointment is my gbs test and he said he would check me then to see if these contractions are doing anything. I know it's crazy but I just really feel like I'm going to be early anyways...I just want to make it to septmber!
so I'm feeling fairly prepared...I have some last minute things to get still but nothing crazy, I've started freezing some meals and am going to be having a cleaning service come scrub my house since I just don't have the time on energy to do it. I think that's about it...poor kid barely has any clothes other than onsies...but everything is still summer right now and I know that for the first few months that's pretty much all Rachel wore anyways. Ok now I'm rambling...haha!
OMGosh! I can't believe you're already 34 weeks! I can't wait to meet this little guy! I also don't think you need to worry too much about the clothes, we barely had anything when we had Didi because she was a surprise. We just went to BRU as soon as we were discharged and bought more stuff. Good thing too because we needed to buy preemie sizes for Didi's little 5lbs 5oz self when we left the hospital, so we would have had to go buy more, nothing we had would have fit.
