My husband has resorted to lying to me…

When I ask how I look, he says beautiful even though I know I am all puffy and have dark bags under my eyes

When I ask how moody I have been lately, he tells me that I have been an angel

When I show him my swollen fingers, he tells me they look perfectly normal

When I snore like a chainsaw and keep him up all night, he tells me that he didn’t even notice

When I freak out about maybe getting a take home baby girl, he tells me that I will be a great mom

When I eat cereal every night for dinner, he tells me that he doesn’t mind that I have not cooked dinner in months

I love this man…he is the best husband and will be an amazing father soon!

Everything is good!

Sorry for the lack of updates. I went back to my OB yesterday and my fluid levels are holding steady at 18 and her cyst has not grown in size. Very good news!

I start my twice weekly appointments next week. I will be 35 weeks along. I will have one appointment for a NST and a second one for an US. I am happy they will be watching me so closely.  I guess it pays to be high risk and old! 

I hope everyone has a great weekend! We have lots to do to get ready for Squatter. After lasts weeks scare we want to be ready in case she decides to make an early appearance. Her car seat base in now installed in my car! We are still working on her room. Pictures will be coming soon!

A little scare

On Thursday I work up for work and felt a little trickle. I told hubby that I either piddled myself like a puppy or leaked a little fluid. I didn’t think much of it until an hour later at work and it happened again. I figured it was time to call my ob and ask what to do. They told me to head to their office. I showed up and they did two tests on me to see if the fluid was my amniotic fluid or not. Both of their tests came up positive for amniotic fluid. Queue tears…My OB was great, calmed me down and sent me over to the hospital for additional testing. She told me that delivering at 34 weeks was a lot different that 19 weeks and that if delivering early need to happen everything would be fine. I called hubby and told him what was going on and headed over to the hospital where my mom met me. They got me all checked into triage and hooked me up to the monitors. Squatter looked great and I enjoyed hearing her heartbeat. They proceeded to do three different tests for amniotic fluid. One of the three came up positive. They also did an US to check my fluid levels – looked great at 21. Two hours later they re-tested the two negative tests and they were still negative. The OB at the hospital chalked it up to a fluke test and sent me on my way. They said they don’t really trust the litmus test (the one that was positive) because you can get false positives. The monitors did show me contracting every 3 to 4 minutes but they didn’t hurt…just uncomfortable. They were not concerned with the contractions either.

Today I went to the MFM for a growth scan and to recheck my fluid levels. Everything looked good. My amniotic fluid was at 18 today. So she has plenty of it so they are not worried either. However, they did find a cyst on her ovary today. They said it was most likely due to all my hormones and will dissolve once she is born. We will just need to monitor it with her pediatrician. Her little belly is also measuring big. After some research on Google seems like my borderline diabetes could be causing that. Poor little Squatter – Her mommy’s hormones and diet is causing her all sorts of havoc in there.

I’m going to take it easy this weekend and hope she stays put for a couple more weeks! I hope all of you have a wonderful weekend!

Baby Shower

Squatter is one lucky girl and has so many people around her that already love her so much.  My friends and family threw us the most amazing baby shower last Sunday.  It was surreal…I never thought I would be the guest of honor at a baby shower.  They had the perfect location, decorations, food, gifts, and people there.  It was wonderful sharing the day with all my friends and family.  One of my girlfriends surprised me and flew in from Texas for the shower!  Here are a few pictures from the special day.

Maternity Photos

My sister is an amateur photographer and took some maternity photos for me.  I love how they turned out.  She will take more when my belly gets even bigger (these were taken at 31.5 weeks)!  I am going to print a few to frame in Squatters room! 

This was just for fun!  My sister took it as a joke but I think it's cute!
