I love those curls! I just wanna squeeze him! :)
I had an appointment today. I'm still measuring well and doing fine. My numbers on the 3 hour glucose test were MUCH lower than the 1 hr test, which is good but weird how that worked out. I have been having some false contractions but no real ones yet. I honestly didn't know that it was possible to be having real ones yet but apparently it is. Other than that I have just been increasingly uncomfortable. I guess I didn't expect much more discomfort until closer to the end but I guess I am getting bigger all the time and so is he so it's bound to happen.
The baby is head down and hopefully stays that way. That does explain the increased pressure on my bladder recently...there is a head pushing on it. :)
They want me to get a flu shot....boooooooo!! I REALLY was hoping that wouldn't come up because I NEVER get a flu shot and NEVER get the flu. I talked to the doctor about it and she said I certainly don't have to but that they strongly recommend it because if you DO get it while you are pregnant there are far worse problems than if you aren't pregnant. Also, there are immunoglobins (sp?) in the shot that actually strengthen your immune system and those pass to the baby which helps it have a stronger immune system as a newborn. Since it will still be flu season when the baby is born that would be a good thing. I will probably go ahead and get it but I'm not too excited about it. I'm afraid that it will somehow make me more likely to get the flu in the future and since I never have it, I don't want to do anything that could alter that. Decisions, decisions. :(
Other than that things are going well. I am very excited that the weather is getting cooler and have even had the windows open some which I hope doesn't end up making me sick but I just LOVE it. I am so excited that autumn is here! It's my most favorite.
My sister and her husband are coming next weekend and she and my mom are throwing me a shower. I am very excited and happy to get to see them!
