I have less than a month to go with this pregnancy!
I went to the doctors and it was my first "intrusive exam". I love my doctor, she is wonderful! She had so many good things to say!!
-My uterus is measuring just perfectly at 36 weeks.
-My cervix is soft with my baby's head pressing on it but still closed. Which she said was great because I am farther along than most women at 36 weeks who usually still have hard cervix's. I told her I was feeling numbing sensations and heaviness in my pelvis and she said that was good and that the baby's head was doing its job pressing on the cervix.
-The baby has dropped into my pelvis and that is why I am feeling numbness and pains.
-I still sit at a total weight gain of 18.5 pounds.
The baby was moving around so much during the exam. She tried to get the heart beat, but my little girl kept moving away and kicking the doppler- Dr. Kahn said I have an active little girl! It was also nice to have Jason there. During the summer I went to all my doctors appointments alone because he was working.
Jason and I got back from the cabin a couple days ago. We have cleaned the house from 4 months of dust collection and have started setting up our little girls room. It is becoming ever more real that I am going to be a mom in just shy of a month-especially when at church they discuss certain things that are upcoming, like the Calgary temple dedication, and realizing I will have a baby by then!
Jason and his brother Kevin set up the crib the other night. I have washed all the baby clothes and started putting them into drawers.
I do have some projects to finish up before our baby comes:
-Her Halloween costume needs to be sewn together... yeah, she will practically be a month old by then!
-I need to finish crocheting her cocoon.
-Sew her change table cover.
-Reupholster the rocking chair Grandma Bullock gave us.
Sorry this post was so long, but I had so much to catch up on!
