33 weeks!

what's up with us:
well, again i don't have a picture to go up, but i thought i'd write about this past week while i was thinking about it! last week started the nonstress test. the one on tuesday went good. the one on friday however was a different story. i believe what happened was he moved and the monitor was picking up my heartbeat but they couldn't be sure, so it appeared that his heartbeat went down to 90 which would be really not good. so they sent me over to labor and delivery to be monitored for about 2 hours. i was going to take julietta because randy is out of town and i don't really have anyone up here, but they said if they had to do a c-section then they would call social services if no one was there with her. so, i called a friend and she was leaving town but she delayed her plans for me (thank God). so at the hospital everything looked fine with baby so they let me go after 2 hours. on my way to pick julietta up, i got rearended! talk about a bad day :) i'm okay, and the car isn't bad at all so it could have been a lot worse. however, friday made me worry about the rest of this pregnancy with not being near family and randy not being here. so i'm just praying that everything else goes smoothly.
other than that all is good. i'm so happy to have julietta back! she was so cute when she saw me, and then she's been very worried about me leaving ever since. but she doesn't really get that randy isn't coming home for a while so that's kinda sad. she keeps looking out the window watching for his car. he will be home in 34 days as long everything goes to plan and i don't have the baby before then. oh and then my blood pressure was 140/90 at the doctors office but when i was at the hospital it was lower. i don't know what the deal is with it! i wish it would make up it's mind :)
little boy is running out of room! he moves but not as much. if it's true about gaining half a pound a week then he's about at 5 1/2 pounds! crazy :) because of his heartbeat they didn't do a normal appointment and so i don't know how i measured or anything like that. i was going to ask them about steroid patches for the pelvic pain. it's getting to the point of extreme! the nursery is almost done, so i will post pictures of that soon! we still need some items before he arrives, but i'm taking it easy on buying anything else right now! we are getting close! 6 more weeks before they for sure take him, and i'm praying and thinking 5! we are so ready! it's crazy to think that our miscarriage would have been due over 4 weeks ago.
what's up with baby:
babycenter says : This week your baby weighs a little over 4 pounds (mines more!) and has passed the 17-inch mark. He's rapidly losing that wrinkled, alien look and his skeleton is hardening. The bones in his skull aren't fused together, which allows them to move and slightly overlap, thus making it easier for him to fit through the birth canal. These bones don't entirely fuse until early adulthood, so they can grow as his brain and other tissue expands during infancy and childhood.

i will post a belly picture later ;)

  2. yeah it just sucks, because with julietta they kept sending me up to l&d to get induced because it was so high, and then after a while it would go down, just to go back up! i just really wish it was one way or the other!
