Week 34 Update

It's a honeydew!  Can they not find something more baby shaped? Seriously.

Good news/bad news: went in for the 32/33 week sonogram to make sure everything's on track, which it is, in fact, little dude's weighing in at 4.5 lbs.  He best slow down on the growth.  I am not squeezing out a nine pounder, no way, no how.  Unless that's what happens, of course.  The perinatal guy said everything's a-ok, except that my amniotic fluid is down a quart, not really, but it's on the low side.   I was told to hydrate, hydrate, hydrate and come back in two weeks to see what the dilly is.  Luckily, I've got resources (Dr. Matthews) with OB/GYN hookups that say that had there really been an issue, I'd have been put on bedrest immediately.  Here's hoping that doesn't happen.  I can't afford that mentally, physically or financially.  Dude's got to stay in the oven until at least my due date so I can use every speck of leave I've earned.  Yay for no maternity leave!  In the meantime, I can't imagine drinking more water than I already do, but I'm trying!

My new best friend.




I can't believe I have less than two months to go.  Unfuckingreal.

Note- found out that baby gains one pound every two weeks. So maybe 7.5 lbs??? I am going with 6 pounds 5 oz

i cannot wait to replace the 200 oz of water i'm drinking with sweet, sweet beer. or wine. or whatever. oh, it will be great.

6lbs, 5oz would be rad. i was tiny, my bro was tiny, but k and his sibs were HUGE! i don't know what relationship there might be between parental and offspring birth weight, but here's hoping i win out.
