Appointment went well today. My fears for low amnio were put to rest. The boy is measuring about 4.2 lbs and has enough fluid to swim in for the time being. He passed his NST test today with flying colors and my Peri told me, "Don't tell anyone anything, we don't want to jinx this!" lol. He's playfully threatened me to either have a problem with this pregnancy or he will send me to a regular OB. I have to laugh. He had me laughing and crying while pushing my second daughter out just over a year ago. I can only look forward to what kind of antics he will put on this time around. Plan of attack for this pregnancy? Go until we can go no more and then have a baby! If I make it to full term, WOW, won't that be a surprise for my system as well as a HUGE baby! lol At a 1/2 lb. per week from now until 8 weeks from now, this kid will be over 8 lbs and I know that they underestimated my second daughter last time. Said around 6 lbs and she was 6 lbs. 15 oz.
Now if we can just get my husband's knee to cooperate. He had his right knee scoped on Mar 4th and relapsed last week because they added weights to his regime. Well, he felt fine during the PT session but later that night and through the weekend, Lord have Mercy! I was about ready to done gloves and break out a chainsaw to amputate to help this man's suffering! I am concerned for him though. He's going to try to go back to work tomorrow for the first time and I know it will be hard for him to drive a stick shift car home after working for 8 hours. It would be one thing to use his left foot to drive in an automatic but we have a stick shift car. YEAH! lol
Braxton Hicks are kicking my butt .. or is it my son who is kicking my butt and causing Braxton Hicks? I have a feeling the spicy nachos I ate on Monday night sent him into a tizzy. I know carrying around this added weight and knowing this baby is bigger than my other two, WOW, my poor back muscles are complaining. He's head down thankfully and has been using my bladder as a pillow religiously. I still pray to get some energy back after I have this little Tazmanian Devil! His sister didn't throw his ultrasound picture in the trash can this time around, but she did take the picture and try to bite it. Hmmm .. warning signs. LOL
Tomorrow shall be back to normal with just lil' girl and I. Big girl has school until Spring Break starts on Friday afternoon, and Big Boy shall be going back to work, hopefully able to tolerate it. I'll get to watch all four episodes of BABY STORY on TLC and then take my usual mid afternoon nap with the lil girl. Ahhhh .. sounds like a dream day to me! lol And then Suzy woke up and saw her laundry pile staring at her.. hmmm.
Love to all and I will post again!
