Today was my 33 week appointment for Sadie. Everything looks good. She is measuring on target, her heartbeat was in the 140's and my blood pressure was 100/60.
Here is a picture I took myself (with timer on the camera) today. Sorry about the quality but when Brian gets home in the evenings I am usually in no shape to take a picture (hair all crazy, no make-up, in non-maternity shorts, been cooking, etc.). You get the picture (pun intended....smile).
Just a little update on Sadie. She has some really, really sharp elbows, heels, knees (whatever it is that is protruding from my skin). It feels like she has bruised me on the right side (oh, the fun of carrying a real, live life inside me). The other day I think I felt her spine with my hand on the outside of my skin (weird stuff). Her bottom or head is always making my belly lopsided. I can tell she is growing because she is letting me know that she doesn't have enough room in there. Her favorite time to do that is at about 4:00 AM until about 6:00 AM. Sadie also has the hiccups at least 3-4 times a day. Some of the girls in my middle school class at church got to feel them on Sunday and thought it was cool.
I am having terrible heartburn these days (normal for this time in pregnancy and had it with Mili as well). I am taking Zantac at night to help me be able to lay down without feeling the need to throw-up. I am definitely getting my exercise as far as squats go. Every time I put Mili on the potty (about 15 times a day) I have to squat to hold her up.
I am getting my bag/Sadie's bag ready for the hospital (towels and such for the car in case of water breakage). I am also preparing Mili's bag for her trip to our friend's house when the time is right. I also have a list of instructions for Mili to keep her as close to schedule as possible so she has some normalcy during the ciaos (if that is possible).
All of Sadie's (really Mili's clothes when she was a baby) are clean and hanging in the closet. I haven't taken tags off of the new stuff just in case it is a boy. I also have three drawers full of onesies, socks, bibs, burp cloths, and blankets.
We have Sadie's bed up and ready (Mili's bedding from when she was a baby). We will get her new bedding when she changes to a big girl bed.
Well I guess that is all for now. I need to continue nesting in order to get it all done.
