Had a "mommy morning" and indulged in swim and coffee at the Y this morning... all while the kids were in child watch. Bliss!
I had my 36-week check yesterday and am thrilled to be entering the weekly appointment phase of the pregnancy. Yes! We're finally getting somewhere... :)
My doc was on vacation, so I met with another gentleman in the practice and he was really nice. Overall, my stats were good and baby G seems to be hanging out, doing well. No labor action on the horizon, which is wonderful.
Weight gain: +3 (total 29--funny enough, I'm up only 4 in the last 6 weeks! I thank Easter candy for the little extra this time around. Sadly, the sugar consumption continues. I need to be careful! :)
Dilation: NADA, nothing, zilch, zero. I thought I was naturally around 1 cm thanks to lots of babies, but apparently not. The doc confirmed that the baby would probably not be coming before 37 weeks. Tell me something I don't know! :) All my babies have been a day or two late, so I'm thinking little G will follow suit.
Thankfully I'm feeling well, so all is well. My prenatal vitamin is doing awesome things this time around. In the past I was never good about taking it toward the end and am thinking I was probably really anemic before each delivery. I know, I know--bad mama! I'm hoping boosting my iron this time around will continue to provide lots of energy!! :) That and plenty of naps too! ;)
