Well here we are in week 33- 8 MONTHS PREGNANT! Oh my goodness I can't believe it! We just got back from Georgia for Labor Day. Oh, we miss it so much. We had a great time with our families, but it was good to come home. My back has started to hurt in the last week, for the last week-I guess I am just starting to experience signs of being 8 months pregnant:) I had a doctor apppointment on Wednesday. I was very pleased and felt very good after coming out of this appointment. I had a really good doctor who brought in my chart and we went through everything. He said the baby is perfect! Everything on our ultrasound showed a perfectly healthy and well porportioned baby. There was enough amniotic fluid, my blood pressure and sugar was perfect, and my weight gain is where it should be. I have really tried hard to have a healhty pregnancy and I am proud that I gave my baby the healthiest environment I could. The doctor said my size was perfect for how far along I am, and he thought the baby would be a perfect size for a normal delivery...hopefully it will stay that way:)Our birthinf classes went well, and our tour of the hosital was great. It is a brand new L&D ward and it will be very nice when the time comes.
Still working at the preschool, although, I am starting to wonder how much longer I can do it:( With my back hurting, it makes it really hard to work with eleven 3 year olds.
I am anxiously awaiting this precious baby's arrival, but I am also feeling really sad about not being pregnant anymore. I cannot think of another more precious thing than being pregnant. I have enjoyed it sooo much! I am finishing up the nursery and starting to get everything ready. I have all the clothes cleaned, bottles and paci's cleaned, and we are going to attempt the car seat...Other than that, still doing great, and ready to enjoy the last 2 months of pregnancy!!
