37 week Appointment

Back to the doctor today....blood pressure was good, no strep...GREAT...measured great....heart rate 136 bpm. I had to read and sign the delivery consent form....crazy we are there. I asked some more questions about labor....Dr. Pohl made me feel better about them. All in all, a good visit! I have had a ton of extra pressure in my pelvic area compared to last week, especially at night...turning over is not fun. Lots of swelling still....oh well. The movement of the baby's feet or heels has moved from the top of my belly to around my belly button....moving down is GREAT! As I was leaving, Dr. Pohl said "See you next week, if you are still pregnant..." IN MY DREAMS! Next appointment....November 4th.

After the appointment, I went to the lactation boutique to make sure I had everything I needed for the breast pump. I am good to go. I will definitely be bringing the pump to the hospital so the lactation specialist can help me with it before I go home. Even though I want to breastfeed full time...when I go to work for those 4 hours or so a day, Zach will have to feed. I am glad though at the same time because I think it will be a wonderful time for Zach and the baby to bond.

Everything is looking good!

I want to thank you all for praying for us about the house....your encouraging words yesterday brought me to tears and reassured me that everything WILL BE OKAY! We ended up firing our loan officer and hired a new one (she has been WONDERFUL). She let us know she could have our loan approved in about 8 days....wonderful! We got another extension from the seller's until November 15th, though. I believe the date we all are shooting for is Nov. 10th. So believe it or not, I am hoping the baby comes a little late....I don't think anyone hopes for that but all things considered...I would be okay with it. Please continue to pray for us though until those papers are signed!
