Our 35-Week Doctor's Appointment

Today we went to see Dr. Waller and see what all was going on for week 35 with Butter Bean. I felt like I could already tell them what was going on:
1) The baby is, like, 25 pounds.
2) The baby wants to physically hurt me and break my ribs.
3) There have been multiple occasions where I think the baby is confused and is actually trying to come out already.
4) The baby is sitting on major organs and doing mild damage that could be permanent.

However, I was told a little differently. Great report for blood pressure! Urinalisis looked great! The baby bump measured up just right! When Amy (my fave nurse) was listening to the heartbeat with the doppler, the baby kicked right on her-- Too funny! Heartbeat was 150, so it was great! In 2 weeks I will go back for an ultrasound to estimate weight (again, I could probably estimate it right now at about the size of a toddler). Then, we start going every week until we make our way to Baptist East! It was easy breezy today, so I'm just biding my time until our next appt :)

You are so funny and cute about this. You are truly having such a good time being pregnant. And, I might add...probably the MOST adorable pregnant woman I've ever seen. Reading your blogs about childbirth class are reassuring to me that it won't be as bad as I think. Joe and I go on January 17 to start our classes. I can't wait to see how Joe takes it. Please keep me posted on Facebook about how you are doing, and I look forward to hearing that Baby Henig has made its debut!
