37 weeks

Baby is doing well! Scored 10/10 on the biophysical profile, heartbeat in the 140’s, measuring approx. 8lbs 3oz. AFI (amniotic fluid) is back up to 33. :( So, I’m feeling stretched pretty thin again and find myself needing to be horizontal just to get the pressure off my skin and muscles. If I’m upright, I’m contracted most of the time. Laying down, my body is able to relax more and the contractions are less often.

I’m more tired than before. Maybe it’s the mandated bedrest that makes me more tired, or maybe it’s just being 37 weeks with an 8 lb baby. Either way, it’s not easy to depend so much on my hubby. He is doing just about everything around the house right now and he’s taken on a project of building some cabinets around our fireplace (something he’s wanted to do for quite a while now).

I’m all off the procardia and if labor starts now, it’s baby time! He was taking practice breaths again in the ultrasound but had his feet and fists up by his face with a lot of umbilical cord floating around, so no good face photos. But that’s okay. We will see him in person soon enough.

So glad he is well!
