Packing The Bag
My 34 week OB appointment went well. He said I am doing fine with weight gain just drinking ensure. I keep getting sick when I eat solid food so I’m pretty much on a liquid/soft diet until the birth. Speaking of, the OB said that he’s not planning on intervening with my contractions between weeks 36-38. I can basically give birth after 14 days from now. (So nervous!)
For the life of me I cannot imagine holding a soft, warm little baby in my arms so soon. I keep wondering what he’ll look and feel like but I just can’t envision it yet.
Nathan got a perfect score on his bio-physical profile sonogram. His activity, growth, fluids, heart beat, organs, and umbilical cord could not be any better. I’m proud of him. 🙂 I have another sonogram next week. He should be around 6 pounds by then. He’s a big, healthy boy!
I’ve started to put together what I think I will bring to the hospital. Im not sure how big he will be so I’m bringing both newborn and preemie clothes. I’m also bringing plenty of hats, socks, a few body suits with pants, and some receiving blankets as well. I am planning on asking some other moms what I will need to bring.
A lady on craigslist has a ton of cute boy clothes that I am going to go pick up today. She’s asking $1-2 for each. I’m all about saving money by buying second hand clothes for him, esp since he’ll only be wearing them for a few months at a time.
