31 Weeks

Had my 31 week appointment Wednesday and final ultrasound. Everything went great! Here is my 31 week belly...
31 Weeks
My weight is 159.7 ha ha ha. STILL UNDER 160!!! ha. I Have 9 weeks left so I imagine I'll end this thing somewhere around where I ended pregnancy with Lindsey. Which isn't terrible, but wasn't my goal either. Well. Nothing I can do about it now. I can't lose it until I'm not pregnant anymore so I'm not going to fret too much over it. The ultrasound went awesome. She is looking perfect and measuring a week ahead ha ha ha. Here are some of the shots from the ultrasound... SHE IS SO CUTE! Look at her cute little nose and mouth!

I'm getting so excited for her to be here!  At the time of the ultrasound I was 30.6 weeks pregnant... she was measuring 31.6 weeks. She is estimated to weigh around 3 lbs 14 oz. right now.  When my Doctor came into the examination room to talk to me his first words were "well, it looks like you're growing a big one in there." Ha ha ha.  I love my Dr.  He's awesome.  My other babies I guess were much smaller.  Lindsey was 7 lbs 14 oz. at birth and Bren was 7 lbs 13 oz.  So I guess I didn't expect her to be bigger. ha.  We'll see though, their estimations aren't always spot on.

Signed the papers to get the tubal ligation... kinda scary since it will be my first surgery EVER.  Also kinda sad because I really wanted to attempt to do this birth without pain meds but because of the tubal, I will need to already have an epidural going because the plan is to go directly from birth and bonding with the baby to the surgery.  So it looks like another epidural birth... which isn't horrible, just not what I had wanted.

I had a really good appointment... got my flu shot too.  Things are moving right along.  Headed into a very busy month though.  October is looking to be crazy!  So.  I am going to get some rest in before this weekend when we will begin getting our house ready for the move.

Well.  That's that.  Have a happy Thursday and a happy weekend.

  5. I love your pregnancy progression collage. If I ever get pregnant I want to do that because I never did that with my first pregenancy. If I do have another baby i think I am going to try to go without the epidural but who knows if I will be able to follow through. I also want to say that you are looking good.

    Thank you for the insightful response to my FGM post. It's such a hidden practice, it's surprising how much it happens. Well, I'm sure you will keep your baby girl safe and she will get the chance to be educated in such things and not scaremongered into 'traditions'.

    Have a good rest of the week! :)
