The fact that, if she arrives on schedule, I will have two little girls next month... well, that's downright overwhelming. Next month! Carolynn gave me quite a fright this morning, telling me about her friend that went into labor a month early. However, the doctor informed me that no, a previous induction does not indicate an inclination towards premature labor... even if I'm hearing lots of stories that indicate it might.
Since our bathroom is still in the process of being gutted (and experienced a week's delay), and we're planning on putting in new carpet in the next couple of weeks... let's just say I'm hoping that Nora bakes all the way up to her due date.
For my own record (since my mom is really the only other person who cares about this stuff), here's what I found out today at my 34 week checkup:
- Heartbeat 135-140 (she was totally asleep, again, during this appointment)
- Measuring 33cm, a week small, just like Phoebe
- Weight gain of 1 pound (since August 14), which I was glad to see... since at my last checkup I had gained four pounds in two weeks. (Total gain: 12 pounds)
- Normal blood pressure (109/67)
