34 Weeks



We're winding down towards the end here Lincoln, so crazy how fast this pregnancy has flown by. 

I am beyond excited to meet you, I want to kiss that squishy little face and smush those chubby cheeks of yours. I can't wait to see what you look like, judging by your last ultrasound I think you may look a lot like Carter when she was born. 

This week has been somewhat eventful in our little bubble. Saturday night you gave me a run for my money with some false labor, luckily for me (sarcasm, heavy sarcasm) Cody was at work so I was left home alone to decide for myself when/if I should go to the hospital...I let my denial take over and stuck it out at home. Thankfully after about 45 minutes of contractions every 2-3 minutes they mellowed back out to every 15 minutes and much less painful. 
The whole time I was all "this isn't happening, no way can this be happening" with a little bit of "OMG I'm going to have this baby in my bath tub, I'm going to be one of those women". It was scary, I think mainly because HELLO, I'm only 34 weeks!! But also because with the girls my water broke without having had contractions prior, so it was a no brain'er that they were coming, counting contractions brings a whole new level of anxiety. 

I had my 34 week checkup today, and Doctor says that once I hit 35 weeks (this Sunday) the hospital wont try and stop my labor IF I go into labor early. Obviously every day that Lincoln stays put is best for him, but it is crazy how many contractions I've been having - I will say though, since our incident Saturday I've had very few contractions, still lots of braxton hicks, but little true contractions. So I don't know what that's about. 

My blood platelets have of course dropped since my glucose test in February, no surprise there, we'll see where they end up.

I started my hospital bag, I've already got the essentials (snacks) soooo I'm set. And today I made some super important WalMart purchases, granny panties, a new pj set and nursing bras. Watch out labor & delivery HERE I COME!

So how am I feeling otherwise? 

A little heartburn
VERY tired, all day everyday
Very sore from hip to hip
I love feeling him kick and wiggle around
Hiccups are a bonus, love feeling them

Till next time.
