So I had my appointment today. My non-stress test again, number 2 of many more. I had coffee this morning so Mia was very active and wouldn't stay on the monitor. But she passed the NST. Starting next week I'll have to go in 2x a week. Today I really had a lot of fluid! I had 32 last week and today fluid was measuring 36, which is severe Polyhydramnios. But Dr. says depends on the baby's position the fluids can measure more or less. So I feel like my belly is going to explode, it's soo huge! I think I only have 2 weeks left in me to work. My pelvic pain has increased and is more constant now. I hate to just complain on this blog but this pregnancy is so different from when I was pregnant with Kailee. I feel so uncomfortable that I really am dreading the next several weeks. May can't come soon enough.

Yesterday was a nice day though we went to the Zoo for a quick visit. Kailee loves the Zoo and all the animals. It was a bit too much walking for me... I waddled around pretty much and too a lot of sitting breaks.

Well until next time...

getting ready

Major nesting mode happening over here! I have so much I want/plan to do but after doing a few things I'm already tired and done! I'm just about 30 wks... 10 more to go... well I doubt she'll stay in there for 10 more weeks. I'll just be miserable! I'm already so uncomfy. And I'm not exaggerating, I'm sooo uncomfortable! I wasn't like this when I was pregnant with Kailee. It's true, every pregnancy is different.

So I've washed most of the Newborn, 0-3, 3 month clothing and blankets. It's amazing how small those newborn onesies are! I can't believe Kailee was once that small! We also set up the pack n play again. We have the one with the bassinet on top, so we'll be using that next to the bed. I've even got my hospital bag half packed!

So I think it'll be my last month at work. I may do 2 days a week for the 1st 2 weeks in April but after that I'm DONE! A lot of the guest I massage always comment on my big belly. And some are surprised I'm still working! I feel bad that they get the "pregnant LMT", but hey, I still give a damn good massage, big belly and all!

Here's a picture from our last ultrasound a few days agoLook at those chubby cheeks!
