No, I am not trying to avoid weight gain. I know Miss C needs whatever she needs to be healthy. I just gained my weight early on. This time I was not in uniform, I chose to wear normal civvies. Golly. This doc didn't even blink about my weight. I hate it when someone screws with my head.
Ok, back to the appointment. Nothing much to note. Miss C is in the correct position (head down, for those unsure) and is rearing to go. No dilation check (this doc waits until 40 weeks to do anything like that) so we just did the fundal height and heart rate (39cm and 148bpm for Miss C, if you are curious).
So, we're back on the wait and see program. We haven't actually left that program yet. Decided not to rush back into the office after the appointment since there wouldn't be anyone there (board meeting apparently, ask if you're not sure what that means. That's a whole blog entry in itself!). Now we're just kicking back at home, checking stocks, writing blog entries, trying to be patient.
That's the excitement for today. Hope your Wednesday is as productive! ;-)

Wow! I can't believe we're already at 38 weeks. If you hadn't noticed, Little Miss C has definitely dropped. I am getting nervous but at the same time am more than ready to be done with this part of the deal. I know, I know, I should be grateful I can do this and all that. Trust me, I am. I am just looking forward to holding Miss C. I am sure that makes some sort of sense!
I talked to one of my bosses on Friday and told him I am going on half-days. He quickly agreed (I was shocked I didn't have to plead my case!) and DH is thrilled that I am not going to be at work as much as I have recently. I guess I am just an overachiever. I keep thinking I can do all of this without it impacting me. Wrong. I am beat when I get home so going on half-days makes total sense. There are folks guessing when we will meet Miss C. Some are saying it will be this weekend, some next week and some are speculating that she will arrive on her original expected arrival date. I can only promise to tell when it happens.
Speaking of this weekend! DH made me my very favorite, beef ribs! If you haven't been lucky enough to try them, let me tell you, he has the secret down! Between him and my brother "J", they have the secret family recipe figured out and when we have ribs they are tastier than anything you can ever think to buy in town. For those uninitiated, let me assure you, you can't find ribs like these in Socal. So, if you're ever invited to have some, please stop by! I share nicely!
Guess that's pretty much it. We're going to try and continue to take it easy this weekend. If something does happen, we'll let ya know! ;-)

In other news, Miss C has dropped precipitously over the past week. I know, it seems to have taken a while. I am not sure how long its supposed to take so I guess this is normal. Its interesting that we noticed a drop from the time I left for work yesterday to the time we went to bed. Again, we are in the window and have no idea if Miss C will make an early entrance or what. Just hoping we're ready.
Well, that's pretty much it. A rather boring entry but hey, I can be pretty boring at times!

Just because I realized I haven't posted a picture of DH and our "little" kitty (Sammy), I put one here. As you can see, someone little already runs the household so when Little Miss C arrives, there might be a fight over power. I have to admit it, the cat has run our lives and our home for nearly 9 years. Boy does she have a shock coming to her!
If you have been keeping up, we've been making some serious changes to the house, putting stuff in storage for the house showing as well as putting together lots of stuff for Miss C. We've tried not to hide anything from the cat and she hasn't really gotten into anything, YET. I think once we have a little person in those items like bouncy chairs and pack 'n plays, the cat might decide they need to be investigated more closely. As you can see by her pose with DH, she does think she rules the roost.
When we started showing, the cat couldn't figure out why Mommy's tummy wasn't cooperating when she wanted to "flop." In fact, she felt Miss C's first real kick before I did. Sammy was flopped on my lap and she gave me this look like "what the hell??" when she mewed loudly and hopped off. It took me a couple of seconds to realize she had just been kicked. It has happened so frequently now that she won't even try to lay on my belly, though she does have an affinity for making cat scarves on me by lying on my chest (no, really!) and draping herself over my shoulder. Again, not so sure how well she will react when Miss C cries for the first time, or grabs her tail for that matter.
Well, that's pretty much it for now. Hope you all are having a terrific day!

DH thinks that Miss C is dropping, slowly but surely, as we speak. Doc tried to tell me she's still on her side, but unless she can kick through herself, she's in the right position, just not presented yet. Not sure if there's a pool on the actual arrival date or not, but DH is also convinced that we will meet Miss C by the end of the month. All I know is I am so excited about this.
Of course since we just set up her sleeping area, I am having even more vivid dreams about her being home. Go figure, right? Guess that is to be expected as well.
Well, that's all for now. Hopefully we'll have some exciting news to report soon, but its anyone's guess at this point, right? ;-)

Alphagal and her DOM are awesome! We were talking about a trip DH has coming up at the end of the summer and rather than leave me to figure out the going back to work, child care, alone with Little Miss C, they are going to come out for a few days! Yippee! I will definitely count it as both birthday and Christmas! Besides, Little Miss C and e-baby will get to hang out. Its a must, you know?!
Other than that, the really cool baby shower is Saturday. I promise to post pix on my flikr account afterwards. To get to that, click on the badge that has the pix of Little Miss C and then select the sets. It will let you see the other sets we have posted. I recently added one, the preggers pix. Basically I took all of the photos we have been posting here on a weekly basis and made them a set so you can actually see week 28 and then realize that we GOT BIG by week 29. Or just compare week 28 to week 34 (holy cow!).
We just can't wait to meet Little Miss C. Can you? ;-)
