Appointment and Walking!!!

Yesterday was my doctor appointment, the baby is fine and so am I. We did discuss the possibility of them inducing labor at 39 weeks instead of waiting for me to go into labor by myself. This was a little disconcerting to me because it has never happened to me before, yes with the first two (who are now adults) they did have to break my water, but I was already in labor at the time. The reason behind this is that because I am an “advanced maternal age’ (their words, not mine), bad things begin to happen at 40 weeks in older mothers. Things like a higher risk of still birth, complications, etc… 

For those of you who wonder how when 36 weeks = 9 months , here is a nice graphic about the time line of pregnancy..

On another note, Jeff is now walking in short bursts all the time! Between 3-5 steps at a time. I am so not ready for this!! He is growing up so fast! The grandparents from California will be here in October, M and I will be getting married while they are here. His older brother will also be coming out with them and we are excited! 

We are looking at possibly M’s mom coming back out when the baby is born for a bit to help with Jeff, which would be nice. I will know more when the baby is due after the stress test I have to do in a couple of months. No big deal had them done before. The next ultrasound is on the 21st of September. Jeff also has a doctor appointment in Sept. as well. So, we are looking to be busy! 

M has his appointment now at the VA to discuss surgery dates for his knee. He was converted at Amazon, so now he is a permanent and full time Amazon employee! Which is awesome! I do feel badly for him that the baby will be born in their peak season, he will be working 6 days a week at that point.. Something like 60 hours a week. So, he won’t be able to spend as much time with the baby as he wants. 

Well, that is all the news for now.. I need to find food..
