First off, I don't get to stay home quite yet. Just wanted to get that out of the way. We had our weekly non-stress test and Anna did fine. Crazy as always. My blood pressure was fine- still high for me, but fine. Dr. Stradtman measured my belly. I am 34 weeks preggers today and my belly measured 39 weeks!! She said she was almost positive it was more amniotic fluid, but wanted me to have an ultrasound. If Anna was huge or I had more fluid, it wouldn't change my treatment, she just wanted to know.
We went off to the ultrasound room. Anna is measuring in at 37.5 weeks- just 3.5 weeks ahead- and weighs around 6.8 lbs. She's gained about a pound in the past 2 weeks, which is normal. If she continues at this rate and I go full term, she'll weigh about 9-10 lbs. Dr. Stradtman couldn't believe that I'm not having any contractions because my belly is so stretched. The real culprit of my huge belly is amniotic fluid. So, everything is fine with Miss Anna. I'm just gonna have to put on my big girl panties and suck it up until she gets here. Maybe she'll come a little early.
I still don't have any stretch marks- Priase Jesus! I REALLY hope I don't get them, but I'm getting worried. My belly keeps getting so big at all my appointments. I know it's not a huge deal, but it's forever. We'll see.
I can't wait for my baby showers this weekend!! If you didn't get your invitation, just come on! Apparantly the Moody post office is PATHETIC, and a lot of my family didn't get their invite. It feels like the reunion all over again. Anyone who wants to come is more than welcome!
Well, I'm off to home and choir practice. Then I'm sure we'll have Mexican for dinner! I'm so glad my friends love and appreciate Mexican food as much as me!!! Have a great week.
