34 Weeks

And on my way to 35 weeks in just a few days.  How did this happen??

Here's my 34 week belly pic...

Just wanted to update you guys on a few things!  My 33 week OB appointment was very... interesting.  Here are the highlights for you:

- My belly is now measuring 6 weeks ahead.

- Based on that, combined with the fact that Baby IV weighed in at approximately 6 pounds at my 32 week growth ultrasound, my regular OB is "encouraging" me to make the 3 hour glucose test.  She doesn't think I have gestational diabetes (nor do I considering that I've passed the 1 hour twice this pregnancy, have had 3 large babies and have never had GD) but since my MFM doc wants me to take it, she said I might as well do it "just in case."  UGH. In an effort to refrain from acting like a selfish brat, I gave in.  I take it this Friday.  But ugh.  Effing terrible.

- My induction was originally scheduled for Friday, January 24th (39w1d) but my OB's hospital schedule changed so now we're looking at Monday, January 27th (39w4d).  I know it's only an extra 3 days, but she might as well have told me that I'm going to be pregnant forever.  It's fine.  But I think it just upset me b/c I've been in a lot of pain lately and finding out I now have to take the 3 hour GTT?  Blah.  I'll survive. ;)

Other than that, my weekly BPP ultrasounds have been going well, my fluid levels have been in the normal range and my blood pressure has been decent.  All good things.  I have another growth ultrasound on January 3rd (36w1d) so we'll see how big this girl is again soon.

Pregnancy: 34 weeks  

Weight Gain: 28 pounds

Sleep: Meh. Pregsomnia is kicking in.
Gender: It's a GIRL!  {Check out the reveal post.}

Name: Emerson Mae {Check out my original name post here and the reveal post here.}

Feeling: Achy and my acid reflux is out of control.  Trying to enjoy these final weeks of pregnancy while simultaneously wishing they were over.

Health: BP is good. Baby IV is good. Everything is good.  Just hoping I pass the 3 hour GTT.

Movement: Homegirl be cray.

Belly: Measuring 6 weeks ahead as of my 33 week OB appt.
For reference, here are my side-by-side weekly belly pics with Reid and my first 20 weeks with Emmie Mae. 

Next Appointment: OB Appointment & MFM Biophysical Profile Ultrasound: Friday, December 27th at 35w1d.  I'll have my 3 hour GTT and my first internal with the GBS test as well.  So exciting, right?
