34 week appointment

I had usually OB appointment on Tuesday. You know the fun stuff. Get there pee in a cup, wait forever to be called back into the room just to wait some more and see the OB for 2 minutes. Yep that kind of appointment. I am thankful that this has been a healthy pregnancy but I just hate waiting. Every thing is looking pretty good. Baby is measuring right at 34 weeks. Baby's heart rate is good. I'm having some contractions so my body is getting ready just has to hold out a little longer. (I still think this one is going to come late but hey I can hope right?)

The only thing is I haven't gained any weight since the beginning of December. I haven't lost but I haven't gained. I did change a few things at the beginning of the year, I cut out caffeine and soda, I don't know how I am surviving these two kids but that's another story. I was preparing myself to have gestational diabetes so I added it more veggies and cut back on portion sizes but not all the time and not that much. So just a precaution they are checking my thyroid to make sure everything working right. So looks like I'll be making a visit to Quest soon. Fun! They also recommended me getting a flu shot since I still haven't. She told me this horror story of a mom who got the flu right before going into labor and long story short the mom ended up in ICU and in a coma for 6 weeks. Didn't get to see her little bundle of joy until he was 6 weeks old. Sad huh? The thing is I hardly ever get sick sick. I can't tell you the last time I got sick that wasn't pregnancy related. Ugh! We'll see what I decide to do.
