36 week OB appt

Well so far I'm still pregnant.  LOL this actually is a good thing. I will be full term this Saturday so she can do whatever she wants after that, but still looking for an early bird. 

So I've actually lost 3 lbs since last week.  Found protein, but BP was good.  GBS+ which sucks that I have to be even more vigilant that my water doesn't break so I can get to hospital on time for antibiotics.  Now from last week the doc says I almost have to much fluid when last week they were slightly worried about it + her weight.  Have a f/u to check weight and fluid again tomorrow so we will see what happens then.  Still only 3 cm so no progression there. 

Still playing the waiting game.

Update to 8/24 appt at Peri's office:

Weight is up to 5lbs 8 oz Alhamdulilah!  Fluid, heart, and all other parts are looking great.  She is still head down.  No induction to worry about at this point.  Still having contractions, but nothing is bothering baby girl so Inshallah she will come when she wants and be ok.

36 w 2d

How far along? 36wk 2d






Weight gain/loss: Gain well last wk I was up 2 lbs!





Maternity clothes? LOL, there are other clothes out there.





Stretch marks? Shhh, don't tell anyone.





Sleep? What is this sleep thing you speak of?  LOL I woke up 3 times before going to full sleep just to change positions then to remove one more of the 3 pillows I was sleeping on and still slept like I was still half awake.




Best moment this week? My oldest daughter calling the adhan like her daddy for Zhuhr. It was too cute.





Movement: Oh yeah, she's not the soccer player her sister was, but she's not a slacker either





Food cravings: Don't tell my hubby, but anything but Rice and peas at this point.





Gender: Girlly Girl, confirmed again last Tuesday.





Belly button in or out? half and half





What I miss? Caffiene





What I am looking forward to? Holding the little bugger and watching her sleep





Weekly wisdom: Nothing today





Milestones: Almost full term.  Any time now.

1st visit to L&D

Wednesday we had our first visit to Labor and Delivery.

Backtracking: Tuesday I had my 35/36 week appt with my OB and they found that I'm 3cm ALREADY!!! But during the weight ulstrasound they found her to be a little small at 4lbs 9 oz and her fluid was a little low so they scheduled me for a Level II U/s with the Peri doctor.  That doctor has my little K at 4lbs 13oz not a grand difference but closer to 5 lbs which is a good starting point.  So both advised me to watch the contractions and her movement. 

3am Wednesday morning I wake for my potty break and find that I'm having contractions.  They start increasing in pain and frequency so I call and we head out to L&D around 8am.    They monitor me from 9-11, but even with the pain increasing the frequency spreads out so they send me home. 

So we are just playing the waiting game until our little bundle of joy decides it's really time to come out.  I just need her to wait at least another week, week and a half LOL till I'm full term and a little closer to the month she was meant for. 

:::::Looking down: We love you sweetie and CAN wait a little longer to see you.  So please take this time out to just rest because food and comfort are not a easy to come by on the inside as on the outside.  You will have to cry for stuff out here :D lol Love, Mommy, Daddy and Big Sister::::::
