33 Week Appointment

I just got back from my 33 week appointment, no change, baby is still growing and has a perfect heartbeat of 140 beats per minute. It was a pretty uneventful appointment really, except it was the first one where I gained NO weight since the last appointment, which made me very happy. This little bouncing baby boy is getting so big that he is now more like a bumping baby boy instead, he's running out of room so instead of the kicks I was feeling, now it's more like nudges. Mike still thinks it's great fun to sit and watch my stomach jump around from the outside.

The doc is slightly concerned about all these contractions I keep having. Last Tuesday we spent the day at the hospital getting them monitored. They had to give me two shots to make them stop. They aren't producing any real labor or changes, but they want me to rest as much as I can and keep an eye on them. Doctor Deffenbaugh said at the appointment that she wants me to get to 36 weeks and after that baby would be fine to come early, which would also be FINE with me as that would mean only three more weeks of pregnancy. However, the way my life runs, this kid will just pretend he wants to come out all the time, but will make mommy suffer a complete 40 week (or more!) pregnancy. I keep telling him if he doesn't knock it off he will be grounded til he's 21 but apparently he doesn't believe me. He must have talked to my other kids who told him mom never follows through with groundings. (I'm too nice!)

We have a crib now and I can't wait to get his room finished. I will post pics when it's done. I am so very excited about my baby shower, which is this Saturday!
