Baby update...

Today I went to the doctor... It was a regular scheduled appointment. I was very thankful that I had the appointment today because I have been feeling really fatigued and sometimes I feel as if I am so lightheaded that I am going to pass out. On top of all of that, Luke was awfully still this morning. He is usually so active that I never get a break!! I got up, made my breakfast, and then after an hour I went back to bed. I got up in time to make lunch and get ready and then go to my appointment. The whole time that I was in the waiting room, guess who decided that it was time to start wiggling around like he was being chased by something?! After a very long wait, we made it back to the exam room. I told my doctor how awful I have been feeling and she said that it could be just "the end of pregnancy" but that she wanted to do blood work to make sure it wasn't anything else. She also confirmed that it looked as though the baby had "dropped" (yes, Dana and Casey, you were right). I also found out wonderful news that they do not try to stop labor after 36 weeks (which we will be on Saturday)! I have now switched to weekly doctor appointments. Hopefully this will be a better week... sorry for my lack of posts.


  1. Yay!! He will be here soon!! I am so excited for y'all!

  2. My mother-in-law says that the reason why it gets so bad at the end is to make you want that baby out.

  3. that is funny Rach... she might be on to something!!!
