I went to the doctor yesterday for my appointment. It was going to be a fun one - strep B test and my first check. My appointment was at 4:20 so Lance and I got there at 4:15. Of course we had to wait a long time but our doctor is very good to us and he is worth the wait. When we got called back I first did my weigh in and I'm glad to say I only gained 3 pounds over the last two weeks. Lets just throw it out there...I have gained 39 pounds so far...yikes! So it was nice to see a smaller weight gain number. Once I got to my room the nurse checked my blood pressure and she said it was high. Lance and I kind of laughed and teased that anyone would have high blood pressure if they were about to get the strep B test and a check. Not sure if the nurse found it funny but we sure did! So I got ready for my fun stuff and we then had to wait a bit more. Lance had to be at our house to meet a carpet guy so we were hoping the doctor would hurry. Well at 5:10 Lance said he was going to have to leave. :( As he was walking out, the doctor was coming in. So Lance did get to hear the heartbeat (160), my belly was measuring right on track, and I am dilated to 1 and 50% effaced! YEAH!!! And I think it's neat because at my first check with Landon I was the exact same. Wonder if these two boys will be the same on that. We shall see. After I was finished with the fun stuff Lance had to leave and the doctor wanted to re-check my blood pressure again. This time it was good and Lance even checked it when we got home and I was much better. I think the doctors office just makes everyone a little fired up so the blood pressure check at the beginning of your appointment isn't always the best. Maybe they should do it at the end? I did ask my doctor if we would induce at 39 weeks (which is what we did with Landon) and he said he didn't see anything wrong with that since I am ready to go. He asked me if I wanted to schedule it for February 27 (39 weeks) but I got nervous since Lance wasn't there. He said we could talk about it and schedule it next week. So I'm thinking February 27th will be the big day. :)
Here is my 35 week belly picture and I actually have a couple. It's funny how one shirt makes me look ginormous and others hide it (well hide it just a little or so I say).
I had my school shower today and tomorrow I have my other shower that my sis and bf are putting on. I'll post about those later once I get the pictures.
