My 36 week check-up went well. I've gained a total of 23 pounds, my blood pressure is 108/80, Michael's heartbeat is at 142 and I'm measuring at exactly 36 weeks. Michael is also still head down. My doctor said if she had to guess, he is around 6 pounds now. She also took the Strep B culture and I'll know the results when I go for my appointment next week. When she did the culture she also checked my cervix and it is still closed. I'm right on track!
This past weekend was exhausting and I had to go to work to get rested! My mom and step-dad came this past weekend and helped us get the house ready for the baby. All of our laundry is now done. All the yard work is also done and our storage building cleaned out and organized. Michael's stroller, car seat, swing and bouncer are all put together. The nursery is ready and the master bathroom is in working order. Our hospital bag is also packed. Now we just need to finish the second bathroom and clean out our other car. It feels soooo much better to have the house ready for Michael's arrival.
I still haven't been sleeping as well as I should, but last night was the best night's sleep I've had in weeks! I slept 10 hours!! It was really amazing! I feel like a brand new person!
I'm so excited about having Friday off work and my plan is to do nothing except maybe a load of laundry. Other than that, my feet are going up and I'm going to get plenty of rest. This last month is getting rough! I'm so glad that by the end of this week Michael will be considered full term. Now, if he could just come a couple of weeks early . . .
