I had my normal check-up today, but things were much better this time around. I had only gained 1 1/2 lbs. since last time for a total of 21 1/2 and I was measuring right at 32 1/2 weeks, which is the point I'm supposed to be at. Dr. Campbell said it was very likely that the baby had just had a big growth spurt last time and that's why I measured a little off. He thought the baby's head was down like you would expect it to be at this point but since the last doctor had said she was breech, he decided to do an ultrasound. Don't get too excited though..all we looked at was the head! Boo to quick ultrasounds! I wanted to know how big she was and if was definitely a she (you can't look too many times!), but no luck. He told me that all my contractions are normal and unless they're changing my breathing pattern, not to worry about them. I say that's easy for a man to say! Other than that, things are just fine and dandy. Chris still says that I'm going to deliver on November 15th, but I'm holding out for November 28th..that way I can go shopping on Black Friday and get my tree up on Saturday like we always do!
