36 weeks 3 days

Ok, so I’m going to try this again. I wrote yesterday for about an hour and then my whole post got deleted. I am hoping that this does not happen again. Well so I am now 36 weeks and 3 days. That means 4 days until he is full term and then he can officially come at any point. I can’t believe. Well if you remember I mentioned in my last post how they were sending me to a high risk doctor and they were doing an ultrasound to check measurements. Well I had that appointment last week. I’m proud to say that he is looking good. He is on the smaller side, but nothing to extreme. Which doesnt surprise me since his sister was small when she was born. He was being a stubborn little boy pretty much the whole time, his hands were at his face the whole time. And a lot of the time his feet were up there. He is still a little boy! lol. ofcourse. His legs are measuring ahead, so he is going to be tiny with long legs. But his daddy and I have pretty long legs so I’m not surprised. I also had them check to see if they see any hair on him. They said he only has a little bit, which surprised me. I had a ton of hair when I was born, and my daughter had a ton of hair. So I blame Matt for the lack of hair.lol. Since he didnt have much hair when he was born. 🙂 His heartbeat is in the 150’s so thats really good.He is also head down now.They have me going back August 3rd to do another ultrasound. And they told me if he is to behind on size they will probably go ahead and induce me. Which I really hope not. I want to be able to go into labor on my own. I also had another regular prenatal appointment a couple days after that appointment.They did the strep B test, and that came back negative. Which is good! His heart rate was still looking good, and he was still head down. Obviously I was still measuring behind at that appointment. I got checked for dilation, and my cervix was just starting to open up. So i’m not even starting to dilate yet. I’m not effaced at all. I got back there the 30th for another prenatal….

As far as labor I am still going to try my hardest to do an all natural Vbac. I’m not going to lie I am getting pretty nervous because I have had some pretty intense braxton hicks and just those almost had me in tears, But I will just have to find ways to stay focused and get through the pain. Pretty much everyone is set that I am going to get the epidural, but we will see. I still have the option to go right to the c section but I don’t want to do that. But they told me if I feel uncomfortable in labor at all and I want to get a c section, they will let me. So I guess that’s good even though thats not what I want to do.

 

I’m so ready for him to be here these past couple weeks have been terrible. I always have back pain, and these braxton hicks contractions are terrible. I just started getting heartburn and indigestion the other day. I can’t get comfortable at night at all. I’m usually up until about 4 because I can’t get comfortable, and he always lays some awkward way that I just cant get comfy. I really can tell that he has started to drop now because I have been having so much pressure that it actually hurts. My nesting kicked in so bad today. I just got done cleaning pretty much the whole apartment. And just did like 3 loads of wash, and I still have more to go. I hope this means that he is almost here! This heat has been kicking my butt, I feel bad for my daughter because I can’t really take her to the park because the heat makes me feel so sick. So we are always inside playing, and watching tv. 

 

Avaah seems to be getting excited. I showed her a video with a little baby in it, and she was like “mommy, my brother!” And I kept telling her that Niko is still in mommy’s tummy, I think she was a little confused. Whenever I tell her that Niko is sleeping she always says “shhhh mommy, Niko night night!” so cute! I also watched my friends daughter for 2 days, she is 3 months old. Avaah wanted to feed her every bottle that I made her. And she didnt want to put her down at all. She would just sit on the couch and talk to her. She was so cute with her. And then she had to go home and Avaah cried. I ofcourse saw some signs of jealousy, but I already knew that would happen. I can’t wait for her to meet her little brother! 

Now it is just the waiting game!! We can’t wait to meet you Niko! I’m hoping to update after my doctor’s appointment the 30th. But I keep slacking on here!

34 weeks and 3 days.

Wow! So I’m sure this will be the longest post yet, seeing as how I havent posted since I was like 28 weeks. So let’s see where should I begin? Well about a month ago I went and met with a doctor to discuss about my vbac. I seriously felt like I was signing my life away because there was some information on those papers that scared me. Like about how my scar can tear open, and rupture. But he said I have a good chance of having a vbac without an issue because the doctor did a double stitch when he closed me up from my daughter. I have no idea what it means. But the doctor said its a good thing, so thats what matters. He said my chances of doing it successful were a 60-80% chance. So i guess thats good. At that appointment the doctor told me that he was measuring a week behind of what he should be.(With my daughter she was small when I had her, so they werent surprised I was having another small baby. I am going to start going to a high risk doctor on June 11th and they are going to do an ultrasound and see how hes doing. If he is to small when I go to deliver I may just go and get a c section because if he is to small then he wont be able to be strong enough to handle contractions, and it might be safer. It does make me feel better because he is very active, and I really do feel like he is growing. So maybe he wont be a tiny baby. As long as he is healthy that is what matters to me. I went to the doctors last week and they said that I am measuring 3 weeks behind. But like I said I have been feeling like he has been growing so we will just have to hope and pray that he is. But thats pretty much the exciting news for now……Here’s to other news. lol. My symptoms lately. One word UGH! I have been so hot from all this heat lately, I have been living in the air conditioner, and I’m barely outside. I have been really tired lately, and sometimes I don’t even want to get out of bed. I do have those on and off moments were I want clean a lot. I wish I had that more, because my apartment needs cleaned.lol. My feet tonight are at an all time swollen, and the sad thing is I didnt walk all that much today. I seriously have never seen my feet so swollen..I also have tons of back pain, but I’m pretty sure that it is due to him dropping. Which I definetly know that he has dropped because I feel so much pressure and I he just looks so much lower. Oh yeah! Another thing the doctor told me was if I went into labor at this point they arent going to stop me. I really hope he doesnt decide to come yet. I want him to wait atleast 2 and a half more weeks, when he is 37 weeks. Last night was TERRIBLE. I had contractions the whole night. They just didnt get any stronger, or closer, so I ignored them. They went throughout the whole night. And I have randomly gotten them today. But nothing is getting closer, and they arent to terrible painful. And so far he has been treating me very well.. No stretch marks at all…well atleast on my stomach. I think im going to stop posting for now. Hopefully I keep some energy to post on here more often.This was a pic from about a week ago.So like 33 weeks!
