Quick Update

We're in the home stretch now!!! Matt and I are getting so excited and can't wait for Fawn to be here! Everything is pretty much ready for her - we just need her now! I ordered her basinette for in our room the other day and it has already been delivered to Aunt Bev's sisters house in Michigan where she will pick it up next week. Once that is set up, we are good to go - she can come any time! Although I keep telling her if she wants to come now we will figure something out for sleeping - no worries!

I had a midwife appointment yesterday (they are weekly now) and we got to meet with Angela who is our secondary midwife - we both like her SO much better than the crabby older lady that I met with who basically only gave me bad news last week. Angela said Fawn is right on track and is head down and pretty locked in there - she couldn't move her head around at all. Matt and I asked if she could tell how big she was at all and she said she thinks she is a good size (they won't give a weight estimate) and that she is going to be long (even though her head is down VERY low, her butt and feet are still high and in my ribs), and that she has a nice little butt that isn't boney!

Only problem yesterday was that my blood pressure was high, which was the first time this whole pregnancy. I wasn't supposed to go back again until the 1st because I told them I wanted to only meet with Whitney or Angela and that was the first I was able to get in with them, but because it is high she scheduled me in for a quick check on Tuesday to see if it has come down. I was thinking it would be good because my puffyness had actually gone down a lot - I actually had ankles and my feet fit into my shoes! AND it wasn't just my imagination that the puffyness went down because I actually LOST 4lbs from last week to this - must have been all the extra water I was carrying around!

I'm off to get ready now to go to another shower for Fawn with all the family - she sure is loved and she isn't even here yet!

  1. Fawn is going to be here before you know it! I can't wait to meet her :)

    That's great that your swelling has gone down - I am sure you are much more comfortable now. Is high blood pressure common with pregnancy? Sounds like you are doing fine though now.

    You are finally in the home stretch! Have fun at the shower :)

  2. I'm so happy to hear your swelling is going down.

    The high blood pressure is for sure something they should check in on but lots of women get a little rise in their blood nearing the end of their pregnancy.

    I only have a wonderful feeling about this. Yay to manifesting, like I've been doing daily.

    I can't wait to hear about your shower!
