I sadly do not have a picture to go with this update. I will try to take one in the next day or two for a 33 week photo.
Today I had my 32 week visit (at almost 33 weeks). It was a pretty boring visit, which is good at this point. My fundal height was measuring right on where it should be. This concerned me a little bit because I had been measuring large the past several visits. The doctor didn’t seem concerned though, so I’ll take it. I’ve gained 4 lbs. the past two weeks, putting me at +12 lbs. overall. And the baby’s heartbeat was at a good 153 bpm. So things are looking good and boring around here for the time being. I’m ok with that!
Since I was already in the neighborhood, I stopped by the Hospital to see Becky for a few minutes. Becky looked great and I’m so glad we got to visit for a bit. It sounds like the baby is still doing pretty well all things considered, so I was glad to hear that. I’m afraid to post too much of our visit, because I don’t want to steal any of her thunder. 🙂 But I’m glad she let me come by to see her so early in the morning (it was about 8:30).
In other news, tomorrow morning, bright and early, we take Phoebe to get tubes put in her ears. She’s battled an ear infection pretty much since Christmas that just won’t go away. Our options right now were more antibiotics or tubes. We decided to go with tubes. I’ve talked to tons of parents who’ve taken their children for this procedure and feel fairly confident that everything will turn out ok. Right now I mostly worry about her not being able to eat or drink anything (even water) after midnight tonight. Fortunately, our appointment is really early (we have to be there at 6:30), so maybe we can just pull her out of bed and go straight there. We’ll see. But, be thinking about us tomorrow as we deal with this. I realize it is a routine procedure, but that seems to matter very little when it is your own kid. I think Rick and I will need more strength than she in the morning. 🙂
And that’s about it for now! I hope everyone’s week is treating them well.
