35 Weeks!

35 weeks already!  Surro babe is still measuring big and my amniotic fluid is measuring on the high side.  No wonder I’m so huge and squished!  


An elderly woman approached me recently, put her hands on my belly, and told me that you’re not supposed to eat the watermelon whole.  Lol!!

Surro babe has decided that during my weekly fetal non stress test is the perfect time to take a good nap.   This results in lots of poking and pushing on my belly trying to get him to wake up, followed by the nurse bringing me a kool-aid juice box and chocolates.  The sugar always gets him to wake and he then quickly passes the test.  

Here we are doing the stress test (standard practice with my OB when baby is measuring big).  The bands measure contractions as well as the baby’s heart rate.  Then I have to press the little clicker any time I feel him move.  To pass the test they want to see his heart accelerate in relation to his movements.  
Everything looks great – and we’re still thinking baby will be here 1-2 weeks early.  So exciting!
