Let's Talk Babies!

Definitely in the home stretch now! I had my 36 week appointment today and from here on out I’ll be seeing my Doc every week until baby girl decides to make her appearance. Things are still looking great. Weight gain is good, blood pressure still normal and the baby felt and sounded great to the doctor. Her head is down and she has definitely dropped a bit in the last few days. My ribs are thanking her for that!

We talked about whether or not I would get an epidural this time around. I’m kind of on the fence. I had an epidural for both Maya and Anna but the one with Anna didn’t work and I essentially had a natural delivery. So, since I managed to make it through that delivery without pain medication perhaps I can do it again. After some brainstorming with my doc I’ve decided to take a wait and see how I feel approach. If I’m feeling pretty good and arrive at the hospital already fairly far along then I’ll skip the epidural. I’m going to leave the window open and play it by ear.

Things are pretty much ready for our newest Little Miss to arrive, everything except a name. Lorne and I can’t seem to agree. We have a short list of names and have our definitely favorites but we are both being stubborn. I want my favorite and he wants his favorite. So, we are still working on coming to a compromise of some kind. Other than that, we are good to go. Car seat is here and ready, crib is set up and ready to go, her room has been freshly painted and decorated (minus the name art I had planned) and she has clothes washed and ready to wear in her dresser. We are ready whenever she is.

I haven’t taken any belly shots lately but Lorne got a pretty good one over the weekend during our trip to the Olympic Peninsula. I’d say I’m ready to pop. I don’t think my belly can get any bigger!
