36 weeks

i am a bit behind on this one, but i was waiting for my appointment today to post. at this point i am 3 1/2 weeks from my due date, which is mind boggling. this pregnancy has gone pretty fast, even though it has been a bit more of a struggle than the last one.

i mentioned before about trouble breathing and dizziness, so this morning i had an ekg to make sure everything was a-ok. and it is. and my blood pressure is back to normal. i still have a bit of trouble with the faintness, but i am going to chock that high bp up to having a long dr.'s appointment with a rambunctious toddler in tow. i've never had high bp, even during pregnancy, and that was a one time thing, and hopefully it will stay that way.

my nst was perfect, cora is perfect, and there is no progress towards labor, so that's all good news. i've gained 3 more pounds since my last appointment, for a total weight gain of 12 pounds. if i gain a pound a week til the end of this pregnancy, i will hit 15 pounds which makes me kind of happy.

i FINALLY got the nursery cleared out and (sadly) departed with my beloved papasan chair. i got all the clothes washed and put away (it seriously looks like i robbed a gymboree.....), got the crib all set up, the glider put in place and the dresser mostly cleared off. all that is left is to decorate, which is the fun part!

we have bought nothing for this baby. pretty much. i did have 2 showers where my gracious friends so generously indulged me in things that are all soft and fuzzy and new, we are reusing almost everything from bella and have found that we simply need less than we thought we did as first time parents. we sold some of bella's things that were "must haves" that turned into "no one really needs this". funny how that works.

so now, all that's left is to have a baby!
