Just a few bullets here and there...

  • Time continues to march on...I can't believe my little ticker at the bottom of this blog shows only 24 days left! Am I ready? Hellz no, but I'm getting close. I'm trying to wrap my brain around how much my life is going to change in a matter of weeks--it's pretty daunting, to say the least.
  • Monitoring continues to go well...my bp is back down to where it's supposed to be (for me). The highest it was was close to 150, which is much higher than I've ever seen before, but my doctor wasn't overly concerned at the time. Last Friday I had two talent shows at school that I've been so busy putting together since November, plus the usual school stresses that I had to leave behind right before I got to the office. No wonder my bp was a little high. But all that's done with, thank goodness. NST's--check. Biophysical profiles--check. Strep B culture--check. (negative) Growth scan--check. Baby girl is estimated to weigh six pounds, two ounces as of last week, and she's at the 54th percentile in growth, so that's good.
  • Induction will be scheduled around March second at the latest, four days before my actual due date. But that's only if I don't go into labor naturally before then. Here's hoping.
  • Went to my first childbirth class, and actually really enjoyed it! I'm the only single person there...the rest are all couples, but for whatever reason I still felt pretty comfortable. My friend Lisa is taking the class with me, but she wasn't able to make it last Sunday because of the horrible driving conditions. (She lives much further south than I do.) She'll join us this Sunday. We've already taken the breastfeeding 101 class and the newborn care class, so this is the third and last of the classes we'll be taking.
That's all I got for now. Time to get ready for yet another hectic school day. *sigh*


  1. Wow! Getting exciting! I'm looking forward to reading about your first couple weeks with the little one at home...(if you have a second to post)

  2. Hi Hera! OH yeah, I'll be sure to post once she's here! It may be short, but I'll be sure to post pics etc.! :) I can't wait!
