I have my 32-week appointment this Thursday. Time is flying and we’re getting really excited.
Tonight we went to a Pediatrician Open House at the hospital. This was the second one we have gone to and have now met all 4 doctors in the office we are interested in using and have made a decision as to which pediatrician is the best fit for us. We also did the tour of the labor and delivery unit (very conveniently timed shortly after the open house). Seton Southwest has 6 labor and delivery rooms. It is pretty neat in that you will labor, deliver, recover and postpartum all in the same room. I think this will prove advantageous. I also really liked the nurse who gave the tour and wouldn’t mind having her as my nurse.
The baby’s room is coming along nicely. A month ago, James with some minor help from me put the crib together and this last weekend we (well James with the help of my brother-in-law Brian) finished moving the furniture necessary to get the rest of the baby furniture basically in place. We still have a lot to do, but progress is occurring. Now to just make some Craigs List postings and unload some furniture we no longer need.
I’ve started being a lot more tired and recently back ache has come into play. I’ve also been really hot, but James hasn’t minded when I’ve wanted to turn down the air. I still don’t feel huge, but that may be because as of my last doctor’s visit at 30 weeks I had only gained 13 pounds thus far. Even though I don’t feel huge, I no longer am comfortable bending over to tie my shoes. It is nice that James is willing to tie my shoes, so I don’t have to bend over. Baby JAM is still pretty active. She also has gotten the hiccups quite frequently as of late, three different times today. It is quite an odd sensation when her little hiccups are occurring.
Following are the next two installments in our bi-weekly photo shoots. I wish I would remember to do them earlier in the day to get better lighting. I should also find a better place to take these pictures than in front of the door. Then I wouldn’t have to keep removing the door knob from the photo.
