Dang, I’ve been trying to blog every day and yesterday broke my daily streak 🙁
Yesterday was super busy all morning with cleaning, cooking and school time with the kids. I usually can steal some time to blog while Payson’s napping and the girls are coloring but yesterday right at Payson’s naptime Sierra slammed the bathroom door closed on his fingers and he cried on and off the rest of the day.
I ended up holding him for about 5 hours straight. Oh boy did my uterus hurt! lol
Today his fingers are fine (they looked fine yesterday, too, red and swollen but nothing that would suggest a doctor’s visit being needed) and that was really great because I had my OB appointment today!
I had to have the strep B test done (yay for men other than your husband seeing you naked!) and got my cervix checked. I’m 2cm dilated and 50% effaced which is pretty darn typical for me at this point.
Oh and I totally got a bonus exam today by some strange man I’ve never met. Yay for student training!
(Just a note… I tend to have anxiety attacks when I’m supposed to have vaginal exams done! I couldn’t believe I had to have an extra exam done… well I didn’t have to have it done but when your doctor asks you if it’s ok if Mr. “so-and-so” does an exam because he’s training to be a doc and Mr. “so-and-so” is standing right there it’s kinda hard to say no!)
The exams went fine, though. My doctor is so awesome that we were all talking and laughing through it! That sounds weird when I type it! But it wasn’t. lol
And it only took about 30 seconds total even with the “bonus” exam.
Ok enough about exams!!
I also got an ultrasound today. I’m measuring a week ahead (have been all along) and since Payson was such a gigantic baby they wanted to check this babe’s size.
Which I thought was majorly a waste of time since ultrasounds are almost always inaccurate ?
But I got to see the baby girl again and boy is she cute in there! I could’ve sat there all afternoon watching her on the screen <3
She’s measuring 6 lbs. 8 ounces. Add a pound and a half to either end of that number and you have her weight range. ha
And it turns out I have a whole heckuva lot of extra amniotic fluid. Which doesn’t mean anything bad or good… just means my uterus is larger than if I had the normal amount of amniotic fluid.
And that’s it for my riveting pregnancy update!
26 more days. Man oh man I hope they go fast!
