bebé dos:: thirty-five weeks

How far along: 35 weeks!

Total weight gain: +30
Baby Size: 6+ lbs
Stretch marks: None, thank God!
Clothes: Maternity jeans & tees. Leggings. Sandals when my feet are swollen. Elsas. Gray sweater & chinos.
Sleep: All of it. Nonstop sleep.
Cravings: Shaved ice. Chocolate cake. Salad. 
Symptoms: Pretetm labor scare. Joint and groin pain, ribcage pain. Fatigue. Major back pain. 
Diabetes Management: Same dosage. Correctional dosages from steroid shots.
Exercise: Bedrest. 
Mood: Pushed to the limit. Waiting now. 
Miss Anything: Not hurting. Energy. Being small. 
Belly Button in or out? In, barely. Not going to make it much longer.
Nesting: Getting admitted to L&D last Thursday sent us into a flurry of preparations. Bags are packed. Car seats in cars. House is clean. Rock & play set up. Travel size things bought. Ready as we'll ever be.
Nursery: Not perfect but ready to receive a baby.
Best Moment this week: Narrowly evading birthing a preemie?
Thankful for: Family. Excellent medical care. Supportive clients. God's timing.
Looking forward to: Whenever AnnaCate does arrive. Lucy's arrival.  
Doctor Visits:  Tomorrow. Ultrasound & OB, Friday NST.
Baby Position:  Head down. 
Movement: Consistent. 
Labor Signs: 4cm dilated, 60% effaced. Consistent contractions. Nothing else.
How is Lilly:  Spending so much time with Grandma. My parents are helping majorly with bedrest. Lilly's chill, not clingy, just biding her time.

Overall -- WHAT A WEEK! We got our car back, then had major issues with it and realized we were a hundred miles left on the warranty and dropped it off immediately to be fixed at the dealership. So down to one car again. My final work meetings were Thurs / Fri / Sat... interrupted by an unexpected non-stress test with a lot of contractions, resulting in preterm labor hospital admission and IV administration. They released me, I did what I could with work, we hustled to get ready any way possible for the baby to come early. I got two steroid shots. I'm on modified bedrest now, drinking a shit ton of water. Managed to swing by Laken's Super Bowl party last night. Reunited with Lilly this morning. Staying at parents' place now. Weird week.
