A month later...

Wow, sorry. September has been crazy! We toured Evanston, met a pediatrician, learned how to take care of a newborn, had a check up, a baby shower and I turned 29. No wonder September flew by.

We had an appointment on 9/15. They did a growth scan and found he is at the low end of the growth scale, so we will have a repeat scan on 10/3 (which starts my weekly appointments) they also found glucose in my urine so I had to have ANOTHER 3 hour glucose test, which I failed. So now I have to watch my carbs, eat more small meals and test my blood 4 times a day. At least I know how to do a low carb diet, which what I'm doing now is similar to it.

Chase's room is 90% done! All we need is baseboard, shelving for the closet, the closet door put on and the decorations up and we are finished! I've started washing clothes too!

My baby shower was awesome! It was all family so it was nice and low key and quiet. Thanks to everyone who came! It was amazing. I'm looking forward to my friend shower this Sunday. I'm hoping for a Bears win and that will make it perfect since it's a Bears themed shower! :)

Like I had mentioned, 10/3 I will start going in for weekly checkups which will include a non stress test. It's hard to think that Chase will be here in a month..A MONTH! Oh goodness. B thinks we'll go in on Halloween and they will decide he is ready to come out, so maybe we'll have a Halloween baby. Whatever day he comes, I'm still a bit scared!!

Well here are my stats:

How far along are you: 35 weeks 2 days

How big is baby: According to my weekly updates: 20 inches and 5 lbs

Stretch marks: I found some on the inside of my knees. I'm not to happy about these.

Sleep: I'm still wondering what this is?

How are you feeling physically: I'm not as tired, but tired enough and now that I have to monitor what I eat, I'm starving even more!!!

How are you feeling emotionally: Anxious, scared, unprepared.

Best moment of the week: My shower was defiantly awesome :)

Movement: He started up his ninja training again. I though he might have broke my rib yesterday.

Cravings: Nothing really. I try not to think about food since there is so much goodness that I can't eat :(

Labor signs: Still none!

Missing anything: Crappy food and alcohol

Looking forward to: My shower this weekend

Random thoughts: Can I just rewind to February? I don't think I'm ready for this...
