Hi ladies - haven't been very active in awhile, between the kids and holidays, etc, things have been quite hectic around here to say the least.
I am now 32+ weeks and after this morning's 17P injection I only have 2 more injections to go!!! Saw my midwife yesterday and have gained a total of a whopping 44 lbs! I just can't believe it lol. I dont' mind - I really need the weight (I started this pregnancy out at 6' tall 119 lbs) I just can't believe I actually gained that much. Previously the most I ever gained in any pregnancy was 23 lbs.
Baby is doin great - he is head down and showing no signs of budging so that's good. I'm uncomfortable but no where near as bad as with my last 4 pregnancies. I'm keeping up with the chiropractor 2-3 times per week so I'm sure that is a big part of it. I'm starting to work on my birth plan and will be having my doula over some time in the next couple weeks so my husband can meet her and we can go over my wishes.
I am still far from being 'materially' ready for baby lol. Still need to order more diapers, find a bassinet and wash his clothes. I did get his coming home outfit made up yesterday though so at least Something is ready I'm not to worried though, as long as he has diapers, clothes and I've got boobs - the rest will all fall into place.
I am still pretty confident that this baby will make it past 37 weeks (my last 3 came before then) and I still predict it will be on Feb. 6th and he'll weigh near 9 lbs. My predictions have been pretty close, if not exact, with my previous babies so I'm curious to see how this one plays out.
I skimmed through posts this morning and it seems there's several new babies that have arrived! Congrats mama's! I will try to get through the posts in more detail later today.
