Okay, now to the fun stuff: had my 35.5 week check up on Monday...and all is lookin' good with #2! Actually, everything is completely different than it was at almost 36 weeks with Patrick! For example, #2's heartrate was in the high 150s, whereas Patrick's was always in the 130s. I was already dilated to 1cm and 50% effaced at this point with Patrick, whereas I'm nice and closed with #2! I also was measuring at 40+ weeks with Patrick at this point, whereas with #2 I'm only measuring slightly ahead at 38 weeks! So yeah, they're right, every pregnancy is different, and I can totally attest to that here! After my appointment on Monday I'm definitely still thinking a girl, and honestly if I had this babe tomorrow and it wasn't a girl, I'd be shocked! --But in a good way. A boy would be great too. Heck, either boy or girl is fine, as long as they're screaming and healthy!
I had bit of a drama llama post earlier this week complaining about how rough it was with Mike being on nights and me flying solo at 9 months pregnant, but really, after I typed it out and reflected a wittle bit, I felt better about it. So that's good. And I can still pick this little 33 pound chunker up, so go me, right?! RIGHT.
Earlier this week I put on my favorite Los Pollos Hermanos shirt from Breaking Bad and shockingly it still fits! Yahooooooo! Maybe I'll wear this shirt to the hospital for my c-section...which is only 3.5 weeks away! OHH EMM GEE. Here's a fun little comparison pic from 16 weeks and (almost) 36 weeks of my favorite shirt. I bet I can get it to last till d-day, which there's no way at 16 weeks I thought would happen.
I also recreated this gem my cousin sent me on Pinterest with Scoots. I just love it. I think he's sensed lately something is a'happenin' (again) and has been kinda clingy to me. Hopefully he'll love this new babe as much as he does Patrick.
