Appointment Update!!!

Everything looks great!

I gained 3.5 pounds in 3 weeks and am officially up 20 pounds total.  My doctor told me she thinks I'll gain 8-10 more pounds in the next 8 weeks before delivery.  Not to shabby.

We had a quick ultrasound and realized that Kate is now in a breech position.  She is Frank breech meaning her head is in my ribs and so are her feet - she is completely folded up like a V!  We're hoping that she flips head down in the next few weeks as I really would like to avoid a c-section.

The most exciting news of the entire appointment is that we will be welcoming our little lady the week of August 16.  It is looking like her birthday will be August 18 which sounds perfect to me! 

I can't believe we have less than 8 weeks to get ready.  We still need to finish the nursery, organize tons of things, figure out what we get at our showers, and then purchase everything else!  Most importantly, Alex and I need to find some time to spend as a couple!

I am just amazed that this is really happening - our baby girl is coming!!!

My little guy was Frank breech weeks 28-32, and then he finally flipped! It still feels like he's flipping back and forth now at 34 weeks, but we'll find out soon if he's back in his cozy V or where he's supposed to be. Don't worry, you have plenty of time for her to flip :)
